3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity, Hinckley 2011, 16/09/11. Dirty copper with a fleeting ring of bubbles. Barely distinguishable caramelised sugar, watery apple fruit aroma. More flavour with a soft plummy streak, dunked Hobnob notes, sultana, even a dab of demerara-sweetened milky coffee. Decent enough, just feels a bit unfinished and watery in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Copper with white head. This was so cold it hurt my teeth, I suspect the temperature was being used to mask a tiring beer. Sweet maltiness with a little burnt caramel in the background, smooth and reasonably full, but didnít get a roasty note. Itís ok.

Cask, The Spoons at Liverpool St
Appearance is copper-brown and red. Aroma is hey; floral hops, small citrusy element. Taste is citrus hops, hey, straw, caramel, toffee-syrup meeting soy-source, creamy and buttery. Quite astringent but if conditioned properly I suspect a good session bitter.
