3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 King’s 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. Didn’t 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 wasn’t served in top condition, and the hints of rotting tobacco that this beer had developed really put me off. I’d like to try this again when the beer’s on good form. This was a reminder that you’re playing russian roulette when you go into an unpopular pub and order a cask beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Clear golden colour, white head which hangs around, fairly clean, fresh, hoppy and a touch malty. Standard but not especially brilliant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ McDaniels, Dundee. Pours golden with a proportionate head. The nose is of grapefruit and shredded wheat. The taste is of exactly the same.
The palate is medium in body and texture and well balanced in the finish. Overall, a good ale.
