3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 1) Bottle. Steady beading copper, uneven collapsing head. Similar slight nutty, cask and caramel aroma to the Hambleton+mushy choc and hop spice. Weighty cask feel, malt slickness, woodland hop and spice, hazelnut, vanilla biscuity linger. Some appealing digestive notes, low fat/low cocoa powder, leaves and GK doughiness creeping in as it heats; candy floss and glace cherry in the aroma. Unashamedly malt-dominated. Beer of The Evening So far, but the only one Iíve finished...
2) Cask in the Spoonsfest, The Baron, 26/03/12. Pale chestnut ringed with white. Soft ,oily, red berry aroma with butter and plum dabs. Clean and a bit vapid; more berries, bubblegum traces, light husk and caramel, boiled sweets, Campino. 636312.

Slightly hoppy in its aroma, not a lot of character elsewhere, but drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand-pulled pint in my local Spoonís during the March 2012 Beerfestival. I have enjoyed all the beers Iíve had from Wolf and this was no exception.
Clean looking: chestnut red and almost bright in appearance: an off-white crown of creamy textured head sat on top.
The aroma was of mildly toasted malts sprinkled with some citrus esters, pleasant without being over-powering or heavy.
The taste was a fine blend of beery things: malty yet not sweet, hoppy yet not bitter or too citrusy. The alcohol was well concealled within the flavours: this is an easy drinking beer and a pleasure to sip.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Some sweet malts and a faint touch of caramel along with some more earthly malts and possibly some dried fruits.
Amber to copper colours with a fairly small, foamy white head at the top of the beer.
Faint malts and caramel or perhaps toffee to begin with, but again like the smell the taste is also very weak and light. There is some bitter hops and malts with the bitterness staying around for a while.
Slightly chewy with a medium body and a very bitter finish that is slightly dry. Carbonation on this one is very low and as is normally the case with a cask ale, it taste a little flat with a sightly warm feel.
This one was like every other cask ale I can remember, the nose was fairly weak and light with the taste not much better. The feel was a slightly warm, flat one.

[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Amber, fruit and vanilla, a slight dusty bitterness but predominantly sweet. This gets tiresome quite quickly.
