2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 Backlog. From cask at Navigation, Mirfield, on The Transpennine Real Ale Trail with KL and LH 09.05.15. Dark golden. Uneven, but persisten, off-white head and lacing. Moderate aroma, with hints of English hops and pale malt. Fruity and similar taste, also with tropical fruits. Low bitterness. A bit too fruity and with too little taste of malt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Bullers Arms. Brixham ,Devon. Low boost brown. Brown piano shade. Yeasty, citrus and caramel malt. Palate is butterscotch , boiled sweets, Apple esters , dry peppery kiss . It’s ok . I like Theakston old for sentimental reasons so I always kinda expect good things from a theakston beer ,but this is a tad mild for my palate.

Medium creamy offwhite head. Clear amber body. Resiny pine needle aroma with floral wild berry notes. Dryish floral wooden caramel taste with earthy prunes notes. Mid-bodied.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. Copper like a well brewed builders tea. Thick offwhite head. Sweet malty head with some sugary elements. Tastes like a "proper" British bitter. Hints of tea, ash, lemon, wood and "pub". Finish is smooth and it's pretty decently tasty.
