Cask (handpump) at the Plough, Worcester, May 2009. I only went for it because I thought I had only had it in bottle but it turned out to be one of those "I must have rated this before, oh no I haven’t moments". Ginger colour. Good condition. Quite fruity aroma. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Sweetish. Some medicinal herbal notes.

Amber with medium white head. Aroma is malts, caramel, touch of smoke / tobacco. And a definite hint of cheap hot dog. More tobacco in flavour, more malts and caramel, some spice, little alcohol burn. Thin mouthfeel.

Pours a chestnut amber with a thin and soon-forgotten head. Aroma is anglo-hops and pinched sweetness. Tastes like a slightly over-powered ESB. Good carbonation, thinnish body. Nothing to write home about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark caramel brown with a small tan head that is noisy and very temporary. A pleasant aroma of dark fruit and caramel. That aroma stays pleasant throughout the bottle. Flavor is rye, spicy, fruity, and caramel. Throw in some more spice and this could be a nice Fall or Winter seasonable. Still, it is a nice beer with a classic feel to it.
