3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask@Founders Arms, London. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy head. Aroma is citrus, wood, some herbs, mild grass and some crystal malty and bready notes. Flavour is the same, but the maltyness is stronger than in the aroma. Pleasant dry palate along with hoppy bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in October 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong malty aroma with a hint of toffee and dusty wood. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a digestive biscuit base with tart metallic tang of redcurrant fruit. Hop resins deliver a dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty robust and sweet with golden syrup flavour in the mouth. An excellent ESB and well recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask - The Crosse Keys (JDW), London. Poured with a fine though lasting off-white head and a copper coloured body with some lace on the edges. Delicate floral, grassy hop aroma as well as sweeter citrus notes. Actually, the hops on the nose got fuller & juicier as it warmed slightly. Youngs yeast evident on the tongue with a good, crisp dry grassiness. An OK length to the finish, light body, medium carbonation. Crisp, quite dry & some nice English hop character all round.
