Roosters Maypole
Sampled on draught at The Wrestlers in Highgate. A light amber with an undercarbonated white head. A very light tasting, low ABV pale ale flavoured with elderflowers. Finish is refreshingly bitter. Not bad at all, but light in taste and palate.

From the cask at Reading Beer Festival. Very hoppy citrus aroma. Tasted a bit medicinal, certainly unique but I just found it weird. Hints of burnt plastic.

Cask at Lyric. It pours clear amber with a small beige head. The aroma is chewy malt, bready, malt loaf, toffee and fruit cake. The taste is smooth, chewy malt, sweet toffee, earth, brown bread, spice and leather with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and limited carbonation. Fair. A bit chewy perhaps, but OK.

Cask at the Bootlegger, 17/05/16. Black with a decent tan head. Nose is chocolate, liquorice, earthy hop dusting, baking powder, treacle toffee. Taste comprises light charr, chocolate milkshake, faint pine, earthy roast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying close. Solid stout ... good interplay between roast and sweet and a well integrated hoppy backbone.

Cask at Reading Beer Festival. Roasty with plenty of pine. Grapefruit and mango peep their heads round the door too. Pretty hoppy for a stout, heading into black IPA territory, but worked for me.

Cola opaque mahogany with a lasting bubbly beige cap and no lacing. Nose is fairly soft soapy grass, ceramicy roast and faintest bramble. Initial taste is clean cut cold press roast bitterness. Carbonation is fairly spriteful (no sparkler here m8) and mouthfeel puffy. Finishes not overly sweet, a pleasant juiciness and lingers out brown sugar foamy roast.

Cask, Friends of Ham, Leeds

330ml can pours a light amber with small but lasting white head. Nose is pineapple, tropical fruits and a minerally edge. Taste is like a weird pineapple sweety before giving way to grapefruit and citrus. Nice carbonation and good bitter finish but itís all a bit weird, a bit too sickly and just a bit too much.
