2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Claret as Kings Heritage Kings Festive, 4.8%. It pours clear rich brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, cereal, toasted grain, touch of dried fruits and caramel. The taste is bitter, earthy, toasted brown bread, tart berry skin, mild acidity, coffee grounds, chewy malt, varnish, dried fruits, slight burnt note, toasted nuts and a touch of spice. Finish is dry and chewy. Medium body and soft carbonation. A touch chewy and unbalanced. Not terribly drinkable.

Cask tried in two different pubs in Eltham (Eltham GPO and Bankers Draft) and the first pub poured dark brown and the next a dark amber colour....odd. Aroma wise, raisins, dates, walnuts, Christmas cake and licorice. Flavours of chocolate, ash, sultanas, dates and figs. Spicy warmth on the palate. Nice.

Cask at JDW in Surbiton. Very smooth and malty, not much hop, the fruit comes through strongly but makes it a bit tart and doesn’t really work too well. Not great.

Cask conditioned handpump Sidewinder Brighton 20/05/13. A brown beer with a white head and lace. A fruity beer with lots of berry sweetness. A decent body bit over sweet for me and wirh a perfumed edge.
