2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at Southampton Arms. Looks like a scrumpy. Orange with no head whatsoever. Warm as well. Very strange. Very oily and viscous in the mouth, not that pleasant to be honest. Aroma is a bit b.o./cat pee, but sweet at the same time. Taste is very bitter with a boozy sweetness too. Not really convinced by this unfortunately.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Amber, with a thin head. Aroma is indistinct. Flavours are wonderful - berry: sweet and juicy, sea breeze: crisp and salty. Bitterness and sweet alcohol warmth on the finish. A fraction of hardness on the back of the throat, but I love this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a clear orange with a creamy finger of white head. Aroma is lovely, lots if citrus/orange/pine hoppy notes with a subtle touch of banana. Taste corresponds, with orange peel, pine and some spiciness too. Lack of carbonation really compliments the taste. A ling bitter finish, but with some lovely fruity/citrus character to it. Not normally a fan if beers with as bitter a finish as this, but it has lots of brilliant character. Yummy.
