2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. There certainly wasn’t a ruby hue to this, not sure what is happening between them and the pub. There was a boiled vegetable note, quite distinct, toffee, caramel sweetness, tastes like a poorish macro produced beer. Malty biscuit. Oh dear.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity, Crown Summer Fest, Nuneaton, 08/06/13. Brass gold with a vanishing skim. Nose dandelion, berries, buttered Hovis cracker. That taste with a Butterkist finish; clove and red apple fruit, some yeasty spice. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury Beer Festival 10/05/13. A bronze brown rather than ruby coloured beer with no head. A sweet bitter. Old fashioned and tastes a bit like a mass marketed brew. A bit of creamy or vanilla sweetness. Has a decent body but not my type of flavours.
