2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light gold, hazy, tight creamy white head; no aroma; weak, flowery hop taste; thin; light, dry bitterness; mediocre at best, quite possibly ruined by Poole Quay Wetherspoons inability to serve it in proper condition.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour with a good foamy white head, which lasted a decent while. Aroma was slightly hoppy. Flavour was sweet a bit salty and you could definitley taste the hoppiness. Creamy texture. Thatís all I can say about this beer. It was OK but just so average. So little on the palate. I would have had another (perhaps - and oly because there wasnít much else good on) but I canít get excited about anything to do with this beer.

A bit to pale-golden for my tastes. Only had the one pint, perhaps better with more. B

The first chop, Ramsbottom Lancs. Lovely light straw appearance initial aromas of lemon and leading bitter edge. Light mouth feel but carrying a refreshing reintroduction of the citrus from the nose alongside shortbread and dried herbs. Short but refreshing finish

Again a yellow bitter which is very soft and smooth. A bit of hazelnut and slight toasted cereal. Smooth bitter finish. I would have this again.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask. Clear golden with a small white head and a weak grainy aroma. Sweet flowery taste, watery texture, flat carbonation and a somewhat unpleasant dishwash/cabbage-like note in the finish. Bland.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed as a cask beer at The Kingís Head. Golden color with minimal head, slight fruitiness in the palate. A little different from the normal bittrer, but pleasant with some pub grub

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A touch cloudy with a very watery palate. Didnít necessarily taste off, but certainly coming to the end of the barrel I think. Very little of interest going on other than some light fruit. I should probably give it another try to see if it was the beer or just its conditioning that was poor - I suspect a bit of both.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask @ The White Horse, Peckham Rye. Pours a golden dehydrated piss color with a medium white head. The nose is shortbread, light lemon, some soft caramel notes and white grape. The taste is tobacco (oh no!) and sweet grains. Some knackered orchard fruits and crunchy nut cereal. Medium body, soft carbonation. Unfortunately, this pint wasnít served in top condition, and the hints of rotting tobacco that this beer had developed really put me off. Iíd like to try this again when the beerís on good form. This was a reminder that youíre playing russian roulette when you go into an unpopular pub and order a cask beer.
