Cask gravity at Watford rugby Club beer fest. Orange light amber coloured pour with a fleeting white head. Aroma is earthy woody, light treacle, nutty malt. Flavour is medium sweet, nuts, caramel! Some berry hop, blackberry hops. Palate is medium sweet, lowish carbonation. Well made but fucking boring.

(Cask at Union Tavern, Westbourne Park, London, 11 Apr 2014) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange, apricots, caramel and citric hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, caramel, orange peel, marmalade and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

330 ml bottle - Pours a dark rich amber, heavy carbonation and frothy white head but not much lacing. Smooth to drink but a weak palate. You can smell the spices but I couldn't get the jasmine.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Windsor and Eton brewery. Not sure that the jaggery sugar in this works too well. Lends a burnt taste that battles against the hops.

Aroma: sweet and malty, little hops, not very pleasant though. Appearance: dark but clear amber. Taste: sweet. Palate: turns bitter, longish finish. Overall: no typical IPA, but does not work for me. Bottle from Waitrose.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with almost no head on it. Nose is hoppy, but seems a bit old, like the hops have turned - I get a bit of floral notes in there, but not much else. Taste is definitely a bit bitter, but still seems old. Meh.
