3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample @BKL ’15 - SA, danke Jan. Dark amber honey pour. Lovely radiant caramel and sweet fruit-aromatics of the distinctly UK malt base, going on toffee. More unilateral in its mild flavours of buttery toffee (Werchters Echte), Lutschbonbon and a citric spiciness reminiscent of spicy ginger in the back. Quite a round experience for a light and sessionable 4,5%.

Tap No 1. Pours murky mahogany. Nose is fruit punch and malt. Tastes koolaid, toffee, woody, and malt. These mild flavors brews are helping my hangover immensely.

Bottle pours a clear and reddish ale with a little white head. Aroma was malty with red fruit notes. Taste was a sweetish maltyness and a caramel, roasted element with a mild bitter finish. I rather liked it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 27 October. Poured a clear copper colour with a rocky off white head. Aroma of straw, tinned fruit and a slight medicinal note. Bitter fruit flavours with caramel and hay in the mix, but it’s all rather off balance. Finish is astringent bitterness with fruit rind and spruce. Not to my liking at all.
