2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask handpull The Castle, London. Advertised on a type written unbranded pump clip as a traditional IPA. Copper, thin white head. Oh dear, this isn’t good either. Some butter toffee, some vague spritzey hop on finish. Aroma is terrible, a chemical edge to it. Thinnish in mouth. Finish has a bit of a buttery tingle to it. Poor.

Tawny brown in colour, this pale ale has pleasant biscuity, caramel notes. Smooth and sweet, with slight sulphur and smokiness in the finish. A good ale from a newish Burton brewery.

Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. Orange amber. Slightly sweet palate. Juicy orange hinted fruit up front, hops come in for a beautiful balance leading into a gently tangy and satisfying finish which sadly doesn't linger quite long enough. Mmmm. Freshness bursts out. Beers truly shine in this excellent pub.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravity at the Rail Ale Beer Festival, Barrow Roundhouse, Chesterfield. Light brown bitter, no head and a honey aroma. Silky sweet malt and honey, with some brown sugar. Thick, treacly texture, no real finish or aftertaste. Some feta and breadsticks too. Average but palatable beer.

Cask conditioned @ South Western Arms, Soton. Pleasant fruity hops and citric tang spoiled slightly by a greasy feel. Otherwise fairly good.

Cask, Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden brown coloured with a great creamy head, immaculate lacing. Malty upfront, but ultimately well balanced. Good beer from a good brewery.

Wincle Beer festival. Orangey amber served flat as an ironing board. Little hops and citrus notes, bitter finish is quite mild and hoppy. Not bad, pleasant surprise seeing as the first four I asked for weren’t on.
