3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Devonshire Arms, Cambridge)
Soft sweet caramelly malts, a little bit of fleshy fruits - peach. Soft palate. Pale orange, tiny head. Light malts, but some pungent hops too. A marmaladey aroma once there’s space in the glass. Nice characterful pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask handpull from the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Mid- to dark gold, fairly flat. Aroma of malt and peaches, with an odd buttery note which drags it down a bit. Taste is well-rounded for the most part - bittersweet and juicy - but there’s an acrid note in the finish which spoils it somewhat. Flawed but drinkable, and dare I say enjoyable. To an extent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasant enough golden ale with a little honey in the aroma. Hops are quite restrained and definitely not what the North Americans would call an IPA. Decent enough beer though.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Eebria.
Pours Golden, medium to low carbonation, single finger white head. Aroma is very skunky, loads of hops, slight toffee. Taste of initial maltiness, then a lot of hops, but for me the hops are far too balanced with the malts. Touches of Lemon and orange zest.
