Cask on stillage at the Marlow Donkey, Marlow. An amber pour with aboslutely no head and an oily appearance; grainy aroma; sharlpy bitter with some astringent English hops; then some subdued malts to finish. No trace of honey, rather one-dimensional.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand pulled at The Major Oak, Nottingham. Nice looking amber ale mit grand head et creamy. Slight sweet aroma. Taste is absent but in mitigation this has been served very cold. Tastier as time passes. I don’t mean weeks - oh, that would make it rancid. I mean minutes. Yes. It gets better. Like life. If you have a life that gets better. Which everyone should have. And cherish. BECAUSE LIFE IS TOO SHORT MAN! Enjoy.

Cask@theBell, Walsall. Gold colour,small head with a little lacing. Aroma is a little grassy. Taste is of honey but mainly nettles and a little spicy ginger. This spice lingers a little in the aftertaste. A decent beer, different.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Honey like malt dominates the aroma. Small and loose head that dissipated rapidly. Up front flavour is low with a slight sweet maltiness and is followed by firm bitterness

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 Weak looking watery pale yellow in colour. Has a high bitterness and fizzes a lot in the palate. Pleasant honey aroma and a similar sweetness in its taste.
