3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned @ Plough Inn, Tiptoe (new forest). Light with citrussy hops. Quite dry but not a lot of hops in the finish to accentuate this. Drinkable but not exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: cask at the Market Porter. Hazy gold with a thin white head and very good condition. Fruity hop aroma with some good earthy malt and hints of barley. Similar flavour but let down just a little by a hint of plastic. Nice peaty, almost smoky finish. Good stuff other than the plastic.

Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 08. Gold with thin bubbly head. I wasn’t expecting much as not a fan of this brewery’s past beers. But this has decent flowery hop and peach/apricot fruit. OK bitter with decent fruit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden ale style of bitter, IMHO. Light crisp citrusy - lemon - hops. Thin but very pleasant body, mostly a sweet malt citrus hop combo. Really hit the spot.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 July 2004. Dartford Fest. Gravity. Pale amber. Buttery, slightly toffee-ish best bitter with minimal hop awareness. Diacetyl. Aroma is a bit green. Spiesy phones, but on hearing that the beers are green and buttery he decides to go to the Wenlock instead. Probably a wise choice. [2.8]
Nov, 2005 Good Intent, Rochester. Fruity best bitter. Minimal hops. Slight memory of toffee in the swallow. Acceptable. [2.8]
