3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Market Row Wines drunk at home. Colour is clear ruby dark brown, very large foam off white head which dissipates to medium after one minute. Nose is like a new world IPA. Lots of citrous grapefruit and orange, caramel, toasty grain, herbal. Taste surprisingly doesn’t have the IPA bitter citrous kick I was expecting. Malty, caramel, minerally, slight green hop bitter, slight spicy kick, slight carbonic acidic. It has a sort of chalky minerally acidic tang and lingering finish which I’m not hugely keen on.

Bottle at Birratrovo, Como
Dark red amber color with medium head. Some aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Round mouthfeel, good caramel flavor, but then there is some dusty coffeish dark malt; some resins from the hops, but they are hidden. Roasted and ashy malts in the final.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the Windsor Castle W8. Splendid ruby colour, thin head. Sweet caramel malty aroma, fruity hop. Initial thoughts were good but flavours seemed kind of muted, a sort of generic amber ale. Nice enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Reddy brown pour with a big foamy head. Nose of sweet malts, nuts and hop. A simiilar yarn flavour-wise with notes of toffee and spice alongside some decent enough hop bitterness. Teeters on the edge of mediocrity and not my favourite style really.
