3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Bert’s Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a cloudy golden with some head, which mostly goes. The nose has citrus, pine and then pine resin on the end. The taste has green vegetables, probably runner-bean. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a nice clean finish. Overal, a really tasty and sessionable ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask as Scottish Joker IPA at Map Room. Pours a quite bright copper with a frothy soap bubble head. Nose is spicy hops, light citrus and some musty malts. On taste, it is crisp and pretty clean. Spicy hops are very prominent with some citrus in the back end. Full bready malts. Pretty solid bitter, really.

Pours golden amber with a white head. Flowery aroma with pale malts. Well balanced flavor, with light floral and citric hops on a lightly sweet, pale malty base. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, listed as an IPA but given the the taste it must be a bitter. Pours a still bodied rustic copper with a trace white lacing. Bitter and drying hop tones, pine, and slight grapefruit hints. A trace of wet wood an d hint of citrus. Ok.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[cask at Sheep’s Heid Inn, Edinburgh] Lovely looking pint, burnished gold colour with a sparkler head of about a centimetre depth. Aromas of citrus, grass from the hops, malt and a little spice. Very drinkable, bitter citrus at first, with a sweet malt component before a lovely dry aftertaste with a piney finish. I think I caught a great pint, no question. Really good stuff – much more rounded taste than the bottled Joker (which is still very nice)
