2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in the 31st January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque teak in colour with a thick creamy buff head. Malty aroma with notes of fresh green apple present. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with apple fruit again present. Very tart bitter aftertaste gives a robust oak cask note evident in the mouth. Finish is slightly malty with notes of stewed apple. A poor session bitter, lacking in flavour and body.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
JDW, Southampton. Standing Order. A sweet and roasty best bitter. Chewy tobacco bitterness lingers a little too long and too assertively at the end. Becomes cloying and unpleasant after a promising start.
