2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber pour with minimal head - pretty typical bitter appearance. Toffee malts in the nose, generally flaaaat taste... a bit of cinnamon, but a pretty boring and bland bitter overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at the Haymarket.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - lemon and orange. Light malt.
Taste - more of the same.
Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - was expecting a Bitter. This is more in the golden ale or session ipa styles and nothing wrong with that.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Windsor Castle W8 with Stuart. Amber golden colour, white foam. Very good malt flavours here, toffee. Doesn’t seem as hoppy as landlord, bitter enough but more malt-accented. Immensely drinkable, you probably shouldn’t be allowed to rate this unless you’ve had at least five in a row.
