Tried cask. Light malty aroma. Initial soapy taste is surpassed by malty ness. Rich dark colour. Lighter bodied than it looks. Lighter bready after taste with a short finish. Nice session ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours chestnut with a cream head. Not a great, slightly skunky aroma. The taste is a bit skunky too with toffee malt notes and some metal.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Nice deep Amber colouring with off white head. Flavour falls a little flat for me, bland and lacking depth. Too carbonated with constant small bubbles detracting from the taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly malty aroma. Dark brown appearance. Not too fizzy for a bottled beer. Quite syrupy with a deep lingering aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
20th Feb 2015: hand-pulled half-pint in my local Wetherspoons. Ruby with an off-white head that gave some heavy and impressive lacing. Red berries, hedgerow fruits and roasted maltiness in both the nose and taste. Semi-sweet with a caramel hint throughout, mild bitterness in the finish, I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask JDW. Dark brown amber, still, big dense off-white head. Aroma is toffee malt. Body is medium, slightly foamy, no carbonation. Taste is light and thin with soft bready malt, twiggy, never gets watery and the bitter character builds over time. Decent.
