Cask, The Queen’s Head, Chelmsford. Average pale ale appearance with off-white head, good lacing, good perfume nose, also quite floral, grassy, zingy, fruity hops, good bitterness, ridiculously easy to drink. Note to brewery. Would make an exceptional spring ale guest.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy straw. The aroma is a bit buttery and a bit floral. Tastes of butter, maybe some caramel. Second attempt at this one, and it’s equally dreary as the first time around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Funny how you think you have rated a beer because you had it before joining Ratebeer. Some white stone fruit with some biscuit. Not huge hop but some bitterness on end, some sweetness form the strength. OK. Some fruit salad.

@ The Bell, Bath. It was dark inside but I am pretty sure the beer is bright gold. Sudsy cask head no sparkler, yeah! At first the aromas and the flavors are bland and even have some flaws touch bubblegum and diacetyl, but those burn off revealing an underdeveloped but very good flavor profile.

Cask@Market Porter. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, honey, some nectar, mild wood as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is being quite much the same along with some honey and mild spices. A quite pleasantly flavoured brew.
