3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
3rd December 2009
Pigs Ear. A ’Bridge Of Allan’ beer at the time. Clear amber beer. Very moderate carbonation. Smooth smooth malt. Peachy orange fruit. Finishes light and fruity. Nice but not really a wheat beer!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
On cask at the Sir John Moore in Glasgow. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a lacy white head. Smoky aroma with tar, barley and yeast. Similar flavours with a long musty honey linger. A little sweet and mildly dry. Very low carbonation. Not for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Hengler’s Circus, JDW. Hazy golden colour, white head. Nose is malty, bit of citrus. Flavour is soft malted, citrus, bit cloying caramel, not unpleasant. Medium bodied. Not too complex, but well enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, 3 December 2009. Actually badged as TSA (Traditional Scottish Ales), as seems quite common these days so it is not entirely clear which of their breweries this came from. Amber colour. Some wheat notes. Estery fruit. Bubblegum. Sweetish. OK.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask gravity at Pig’s Ear BF 09. Crystal clear pale chestnut colour. No head. Not much on aroma, bit of bubble gum in the flavour. Some hop on end. Not exactly a traditional wheat beer, but very interesting. Decent bubblegum and cereal.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Pig’s Ear 09.
Boiled sweets, gingerbread. Some spiciness, but it is all dulled down by the malt. No dryness in the finish to compensate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A blonde beer with a white head. The aroma has some fruit and some sweet soapiness. There’s a wierd sweet taste also, with elderflower notes. Didn’t know this had wheat in it. Maybe that’s the wierd flavours I found, but it didn’t seem to be wheaty to me.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
A Mes rate: cask at the Bon Accord, Glasgow.
I think the Bon Accord need to pay a little more attention to the condition of their beers. And going off this one, their selection too... In all honesty this was bloody awful. Tom has been generous with his notes there as all he wrote down was:
I’m quite happy to go along with that...
(As a description of the beer obviously, I have no requirement for cheese on my moobs.)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask in the Bon Accord. Again not in good condition, however this was not a hot beer to start with. Aroma is slighlty iodiny wheat and over ripe fruit with old cellar edge. Taste is similar, its just a mess of a thing, not good in any way.
