3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours amber with a nice head. The nose has biscuits, toffee and some sweet maltiness in the background. The taste is much the same. The palate is generally light to medium in body with a smooth texture and a reasonably refreshing finish. Overall, a decent session ale but didn’t go back for another.

Golden amber, nice head. This is a complex and very fruity beer, and I appreciate the distinctiveness of its character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home on Christmas day. Thanks to my sister. Golden orange coloured pour with a thin white head that fades to a thin film. Aroma is sweet grain honey and dried fruit. Flavour is a nice delicate mix of honey and toast malt with nice aromatic fruit and berry. Crisp medium light body with medium carbonation. Tasty bitter.

Bottle from Hay Wines, Ledbury, Herefordshire. Clear gold. Thin, lasting, white head. Aroma of red fruit and biscuity malt. Taste is red fruit sweetness initially. Quite full bodied, with the sweetness giving way to a dry, light bitter finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at the Three Tuns, Hay on Wye. Golden amber with a light fizz and a middling white head. Smell of vomit and dried parmesan, with some flowers. Citrus and floral taste, but the smell is always offputting. Is there something wrong with this? Not sure I’d want to risk trying it again to find out though.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light to mid-brown with a hint of red. Sulphur aroma. Sturdy sweet/sour behind the Burton-y egginess. Tough balance to get right and they do.
