3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Railway Tavern, Chelmsford. Red colour. Aroma is fruity and a touch yeasty. Flavour is malty, fruity and sweet, plenty of body for the ABV, I actually thought it was stronger. Perhaps not served in the best condition by the pub.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Bottle conditioned from GBBF 2005. No head, and despite pouring carefully, a little haziness in the beautiful amber colour. Complex but immensely drinkable. Malt and fruit blended in the taste and a subtle bitterness crept in at the end. Wonderful. Cask at ’Spoons, M.K. 5th July, 2007. Caramel malt aroma. Fruity taste, some sourness, grainy background. Late bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Bohemian, Deal. Hop nose is reminiscent of Wherry but this has more body from the extra alcohol. Overall a really good beer, that I would have been happy to drink all afternoon.
