2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Handpump at the Rose and Crown Oxford. Pours a med. amber with a soapy white head. Aroma is cardboardy, earthy and malt accented. The body is med. with very low CO2 even for a cask ale. The flavor is very oxidized. I canít say much more than that. Just oxidized and slightly hoppy. Finish is dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Bunch of Grapes, october 07. Clear, dark oranger color with a small white head. Slightly sulphurous, fruity notes. Very faint aroma. Hoppy, lemon with some hay flavors and very slight nutty matls notes. Decent. Medium mouthfeel, solid malt backbone and a nice dry ending. Nice comforting but a bit insipid bitter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
didnít like it as a cellarman (real pain to keep well), donít like it as a barmaid (needs a sprinkler... i know) and definitely dont like it as a pint. gotten a lot worse at wells. Too sweet to start with, like water in the middle and an akward bitter finish. badly unbalanced beer...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask. Reddish bronze clear ale with a healthy light cream head. Spicy grassy nose with a touch of malt. Much mature in the mouth, with more spiciness and a sold bitter hop. A solid "drinkers" bitter.
