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.

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.

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.

Cask at the Chequers, Cottenham. Reddish brown, very translucent. Very little head. Soft figs, vanilla, forest floor in the aroma. Taste is gently bitter, some fruity sweetness at first but this slowly disappears en route to the sour/bitter finish. Sour cherry and wood shavings in the aftertaste.
