2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of red berries, some nutty malt, slight biscuit and subtle orange. Taste of red berries, nuts, subtle chocolate, slight caramel, orange and some spicy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, nutty, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Looked and smelled below average so wasn’t looking forward to it but it’s really well balanced with a decent hop profile. Little thin and inconsistent to be good though.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Commercial Rooms, JDW - Bristol. Pours totally clear copper-gold with a creamy, light tan head. Grainy aroma, some toasted hay, leaves. Light sweet flavor, mildly astringent, with some grainy brown brad, husk, leaves, earth. Light bodied with fine carboantion; decent condition. Bitter finish, with dry toasty bread and grains, faint citrusy hops, bitter earth and leaves, slight tea. Not bad overall. A little astringent at first, but thankfully that quality relaxes over time (perhaps the palace adjusts). OK.
