Cask at Lyric, Soho. It pours deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is fruity, fresh pine, earth, leather and varnish. The taste is wood, earth, varnish, berry, touch of spice, zesty citrus and light caramel with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Well balanced.

[Cask at Reading BF] Bronze with a think white head. Green leafy hops with a light pine flavour. Little bit of detergent. Little bit of Stella Artois. Very disappointing, especially given the hype around this brewery at the moment.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Half pint from cask at the Cask Pub and Kitchen.
Pours a dark amber/red colour with a small head.
Smells sweet and fruity, dominant malts.
Taste again dominated by a sweet, caramel malt, with bitter hops and a thin-medium mouthfeel. Strong flavours though.
Overall a really nice beer.

Cask in the Barley Mow W1. Reddish brown in colour, came out bright. Hmm I like a nice hoppy modern red ale. Good malt character, bitter hop twang. Very smooth. If being picky, Iíve had these with a bit more juicy snap, but this is good solid beer. Not the most sensible artwork for the non-Welsh market, had a nightmare trying to explain what I wanted in the round!

(on cask @ Exmouth Arms) Pours a clear amber with little, white head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is juicy fruity hops with notes of passion fruit and catís pee. Oily texture, full bodied, softly carbonated with a balanced, malty sweet finish. Taste is relatively sweet but with hoppy fruity notes. Highly recommendable.

A good job my mate could read that thatís a W on the pumpclip - I had no idea. Anyway this is pretty decent, full-bodied for the style, fairly sweet malt nicely balanced by some earthy hop. Good beer.

Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co EC1 London 28/02/13. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Sweet malts and good hoppiness as youíd expect from an Amber ale. Not too sweet which is spot on for me. A good body,and the hops are just right. Very tasty. A red ale done well which can be a rare thing.
