3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Wetherspoons, High Wycombe. A sweet, malty bitter with little bitterness and a somewhat citric freshness to it. The sweetness is typical Titanic but a good beer all the same.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Slightly hazy amber with a decent white head and lace. Hoppy aroma with wheat straw and some lemon. Odd meaty sanwich note in the flavour that I’m really not sure about. Bitterish finish with some malt but no real balance. Lots of wheat and straw. A little sticky. Not my thing.

Cask at the Penny Black, JDW, Bicester, Oxon 12-01-08 Mid golden, with the merest of a haze, an aromatic beer, florally hops, honey in the mouth, but there is a nice citrusy underbelly to this beer. A really very good drop indeed.

[CASK: The Lass-O-Gowry, Manchester 28/01/07] A very good ale and one that is making me pleased with what Titanic brewery has to offer. A nice seasonal ale for the new year and delicious. Make sure you try if you can.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
JDW, Rochester. Fragrant, fresh pale ale with typical Titanic flowery citric notes. Malt has a delicate sweetness, but a touch of grease verging on diacetyl. Pleasant, though could be sharper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Golden colour. Some citrussy hops to start. Thin straightforward malt body with a little bitterness to finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing but not great. A slightly odd choice for a January seasonal this sort of beer is surely more suited to warmer weather.
