3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Brilliant gold under a slim moussey collar. Peppery chocolate orange nose pushing an 8. Firm malty body with lovely flowery, tangerine and galangal hop accents backed with solid but unobtrusive malt. Summery more than autumnal. Stillish, soft carbonation. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask Conditioned, at the Malt Shovel, Horsham. </br>
Amber, bright and well behaved. Served super fresh in what is Horsham’s number 1 Real Ale pub. 6 pubs and 4-6 casks behind the par (plus all the regular lager suspects). Another good solid bitter from Weltons. The only criticism I might make of this is that it just too similar to the last Welton’s I had. Possibly not as crisp, fresh and bright as the last but certainly all the same flavours.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Sir John Oldcastle, JDW, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Pale, biscuity malt nose, light straw. Light to medium sweet flavor, all pale malts, some doughy white bread, white sugar. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with faint hay bitterness, creamy pale malts, faint lemon. OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive bronze/brown colour. Mainly malty, a bit of fruit with some tangy hop notes coming through late. Reasonably dry. These malty Autumnal bitters aren’t my favourites, but this was proficiently made, if uninspiring. Cask (handpump) at the Magpie and Crown, Brentford.

Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are caramel with earthy hops and biscuit. Lemon with some floral aspects. Flavours are caramel malts with grain and some butter. Mellow lemon with a lightly hopped, floral, fruity finish. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazed straw to gold with white head. Another thin palate to a beer in this festival, light, some sweetness with a fruity light lemon background more fairy liquid lemon than fresh. It’s ok I reckon.
