3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Initially very flowery and perfumed, but fortunately this calmed down into quite a drinkable, hoppy little number. There was a Kiwi fruit type character along with a bitter orange. The body delivered a pleasant biscuit type malt, reasonably crisp and sharp. Overall decent enough.

Draft House, Tower Bridge. Light haze on this amber beer. Good white head. Palate is light and dry. Low carbonation. Light grassy hops with a little marmalade. Trace of citrus. A kind of powdery hop dust is very distracting but overall not a bad beer.

Keg@ Euston tap. Served very cold had to wait ages to drink it, anyway no complexity just simply dry in a pale ale sense no fruit in the smell or taste low carbonation unappealing brown colour. Tasted like a cask ale coming from a Cold keg. Rather not have bothered. Buy only if it’s cheap ie less than £3 per pint.
