Cask at the prince of Wales Wimbledon. Brown clear in colour, thin rim. Unbalanced sweet malty leafy flavours with quite a bit of brown banana and wet dog. Quite terrible

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at a visit back to Preston. Dark brown pour, big white head. Overwhelming aromas of banana, and not in a nice-weiss-beer way. Some toffee. Bit odd. Tastes sweet. Possibly not well kept, so switched to the Wainwright. My cousin had four of these, and was apparently sick in the car on the way home. might re-rate in future just to be sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Secklow Hundred, Milton Keynes. Appearance: a shade lighter than chestnut brown. Big, big, big head (lively barrel)! Aroma of soft malt and fruit mixed with a pleasantly balanced astringency. The taste is nice - a malty sweetness with some bitterness at the end. This is a commendable old-fashioned extra bitter. Nothing too original, but a dependable pint.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Very short aroma with a faint whiff of rotting vegetation and yeasty dough. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with a vague hint of raisin fruit but little else. Earthy hops impart a weak bitter flavour which fades fast through the aftertaste. Finish has a dilute malty note with a slight metallic tang present in the mouth. This is a poor session bitter, lacking in depth of body and complexity.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Plockton Inn, Plockton, 19/10/13.
Clear copper golden with a good sized off white head.
Nose is bready malt, light fruit, a little thin.
Taste comprises bready malt, hint of orange, light fruit notes.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light bitter notes in the fnish.
Good feel to this one but lacks a little in flavour. So so bitter.
