Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Quite a dark bitter with a strong aroma and flavor of chocolate malt. This particular bitter had a very nice, smooth and chewy mouthfeel that i enjoyed. Not outstanding, but decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark, reddish brown beer with a frothy beige head. The nose is strong, sweet and malty with a touch of ripened fruit. The taste is again malty, slightly bittersweet, with hints of caramel and liquorice, and a slightly dry, zesty finish. The aftertaste is long, with the sweetness of malt and the zestiness towards the end. (Bottle - purchased at The Real Ale Shop, Branthill Farm, near Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk).

Cask@Catford Beer Festival. Wholemeal maltyness, really nice and soft, and lightly sweet. A little toasty, with a slightly citric, earthy aromatic hop finish. Pretty subtle and light, but works nicely.

Granny probably would like this because it is faily innocuous. Auburn amber color is attractive. Body is thin with a tinge of stale hops at the end.

Cask, Battersea Beer Festival, London 2004: Well, I guess my granny wouldn't like it, as I didn"t like it either. Dark amber color, sweet and flat taste. Boring.
