1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 Cask poured, pale cloudy colour, with a slight floral aroma and taste. Had a very sour almost vinegary after taste. had strange sediment in the bottom of the glass. Not sure whether this was a bad cask, or a bad ale, but I had another pretty poor tring ale after this one. Either way, was dreadful..avoid!
N.B - I believe that this was due to acidic sediment from the bottom of the cask. This is probably not a true reflection of the ale quality.

Cask (Kingston Arms, Cambridge)
6 Sticky raw hop aroma.
3 Orange bitter, small head.
6 Boring. Malty, little more than that. Fake honey taste too.
3 Sticky palate. Bitter finish. You’re left with nice graininess.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden. A little bit buttery. The taste is bland, creamy and buttery, maybe with some okay bready malt late. Not my pint, though.
