2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2007. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Very slight hint of butterscotch in the short nose. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with gaia melon, juicy in the mouth. Dry hoppy resins give a dusty note to the quick aftertaste. Finish is edged malty with tart citrus peel notes evident. An ok session bitter.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The Baron. Dusty bronze with a creamy white top. Fairly nondescript aroma with hints of grassiness and plastic. Sharp mineral front overpowering a decent, lingering digestive aftertaste. Hints of aniseed. Just another substandard dull English bitter with zero hop character.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours a cloudy amber with a fine, whitish head. Bready malt nose. Lightly sweet flavor, bit of yeast, slight wood, dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Kind of bland finish, light sugars, dough and yeast, faint herbal and earthy bitterness. Condition is lacking but it might not matter much here. Average at best.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice, summery and drinkable despite not being my usual style preference. The bitter was a little to strong although this didn’t take too much away from the overall experience. Average al round and probably not one I would seek out again. * * * 1001 Beers to try before you die: * * *
