3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Hotel Continental, Whitstable. A golden pour with a decent white head on top. Nice hoppy aroma. Nice amount of hoppiness, fruity, floral, honey, refreshing. This is a seriously decent IPA. Drinking it fresh in Whitstable with the fishermans boats bobbing about in the harbour and the sun setting on the horizon. Nice experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - The Bell & Crown, Canterbury. A golden amber beer with a fine but lasting white head - never completely dissipating - leaving a good lacing. Plenty of citrus hops on the nose, some dry straw and grass notes too. Good hoppy body with grapefruit bitterness, sweeter fruits and a hint of a floral quality. Nice lasting piney bitter finish, good smooth and soft palate texture. Well balanced, light yet full of flavour. Easily quaffable and really tasty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ London Drinker 25:
Golden with a smooth film of head.
Light honeyed hops and musty barnyard aromas.
Tingly and sweet with a light twitch of bitterness. A wee bit too dry but very rustic tasting which is a treat.
Definitely worth a go.

Cask@OldBreweryCantebury. Fruity aroma with citrus and light grassy. Yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Malty start, bit fruity, very bitter, very grassy. Dry mouthfeel. Well brewed, bit too bitter to be a session beer.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Sweet lemony foral hop aroma. A little biscuity malt, but taste is dominated by citric hops with a sharp bitter finish. Overwhelmingly sour and lemony. Doesn’t quite work for me.

Cask at the Trafalagar, 1st July 2008. Clear golden amber with no head. Light floral hop aroma that carries over into the taste, with lots of strong grapefruit flavours. Nice lingering bitterness but a bit too sharp for my liking.

Cask at Churchillís, Ramsgate: Not impressed with this beer. Overly sweet and very cloying, also a strange harshness to it. Iíve tried it a couple of times now and I just donít like it.

Cask @ The Wenlock Arms, London.
Pours dark golden with a nice, small, creamy white head. Aroma is soft, some vanilla and flowery hops - some roses, even. Quite lively mouthfeel for a cask ale - maksing it rather fresh. Lovely bitter flavour, lots of fruity and flowery hops. Wonderful dryness. Gimme more!
