2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ JDW Standing Order, Edinburgh 261012
Golden, clear, creamy white head with good lacing
Aroma - light sweet fruity malt, little on the nose
Taste - sweet golden malts, some scorched fruit caramel bitterness, bit heavy, getting a touch of minerals, some bitter hops in the background
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour, some more of that scorched malt bitterness..there could be a touch of coffee in the finish but its a bit rough
Overall - Came across to me as just not a great golden ale

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask JDW Last Post. Pours clear amber. Nose straw and strong cheddar. Expected more going by previous reviews but taste was initially genuine porter but changed to salty onions and bovril on the palate. Huge fan of Titanic but this sensed of change for change sake like the mostly substandard fad of black IPAs but a poor effort.
Won’t be having another.

Cask at JDW Manchester.
Thin white head. Clear golden pour. Tastes like a porter but looks like a bitter. I almost said you’ve poured the wrong beer ;-) Hoppiness in the aftertaste. A very interesting beer. Well done Titanic brewery!

Cask at JDW - Bishop Vesey; Pour golden yellow, roast malt aroma bit of a weird one because if you closed your eyes you would think you were drinking a dark ale roasty coffee malts. Weird but an OK beer.
