Probably couldn’t drink a lot of it but really tasty. Heavy on the jasmine, Parma Violet, medium sweet front then tailing off to floral bitterness. Medium oily body. Cask at Euston Tap.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on cask at against the grain. Pours cloudy marmalade orange. Thin frothy head. Aroma is quite light. Perfume fragrance, very lightly hopped. Musty malts also on nose. Fragrant flavour, I’m guessing jasmine which leaves a pleasant aftertaste after the initial caramel malt hit. Little to no bitterness which is quite flat. Flavour is full but it is a delicate beer. Low carbonation. It’s nice but not enough oomph for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at the Porterhouse. Appearance: slightly orange, thick white head. Aroma: slightly fruity, a little hops, some floral notes. Flavour: wow, flower, herbal, pollen, some hints of those sweets from the 80’s ’violet something or others’. Sweet, hoppy, lovely long floral citrus finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Lightly hazy, orangey amber. Thin, tight, lasting, white head. Peachy, floral and fruity aroma. Taste is peachy sweet, floral dryness, followed by a spicy bitterness. The whole works, really. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish, with the jasmine remaining throughout. Certainly interesting.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ WJ Kavanagh. Caramel, fruity herbs on the aroma. Quite grassy in flavour, lots of herbs and some background malt. Decent body, no carbonation from the cask. Soft, gentle floral finish. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask@blackdoor. Copper. Bit grainy malty nose, caramels, citrus. Dry bittery body, with a pretty strong jasmine/floral/sweetish fruity flavour. I sort of like this. Bit different, almost candy- like, popsicle. Didn’t expect that.
