3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a small creamy head. Little aroma with some malt and caramel. Big sweet flavour dominated by the malt and only with a hint of bitterness at the end. And a perfect version of that creamy, silky cask mouthfeel

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask Pretty sure this one was still Wandsworth brewed, FTR. Dark chestnut with garnet highlights; B.C. "H.". Fruity, dark malts, a few meaty esters, and some acetic acid... Mild sweet taste, quite fruity, as cherries, ending in a kind of sweetness that is peculiar to this type of beer. Muscovado? Candy. Medium bodied, quite slick, alcohol-dryness (as the "tears" on a sherry glass). Enjoying the last of the real stuff?

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
cask at the crows nest in crosby, liverpool... too dark a colour to call and not much aroma got through the head on the pint or maybe not too much aroma of anything, white strong head that lasted almost down the glass. quite weak in the mouth, not a great deal going on but some malt, but not much else. hints of chocolate on the finish but really nothing to get excited about

Cask at the Spread Eagle, Albert Street, Camden Town. Dark red-brown. Served too cold. Faint aroma. Rather dusty cardboard taste. Some late bitterness, but not particularly warming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: From the White Horse. Creamy malt nose. Translucent dark red body with just a thin film for a head but leaves nice lacing. tastes like French toast with a berry finish with some malt. Standard palate. Nothing to write home about.
