Cask at the Pump House, Shirley, Solihull. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is light hop with some citrus notes. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry malty, earthy, hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Acorn Old Moor Porter (Bottle)
Bottle from Tesco, Brighouse. Very dark reddish-brown with no head. Has a good aroma with a fair roasted malt here, and whilst it is similar in taste, it’s lesser stated here. Has a very drinkable texture.

Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout
Bought a bottle of Gorlovka from Asda & enjoyed it at the end of an evening, this ale is quality very hoppy full bodied stout with lots of flavours of liquorice & fruits. really tasty, different league to Guiness in my book. better looking new bottle too & like the Russian name.

Aroma hoppy with citrus notes but gaseous ?.Appearance cloudy which I personally don?t like. Taste grassy and a little sulphurous at start. Caramel and biscuit crackers flavours come later. Good strength.

Acorn Huell Melon IPA
Intense grain and cereal malts, bread, caramel, dusty straw. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Grain malts continue, sweet grain, caramel, light bitterness coming up, a tiny hint of floral hops, flat carbonation, medium body. A fairly malty ’IPA’, lacking hops left right and centre, yet not bad as a beer. Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Acorn Hoptathlon
Cask hp at Hamilton Hall as Acorn Hoptathlon, 4.5%, special for Rio Olympics 2016. Pale golden, still, clear, small foamy beige head. Aroma had some sulphur to start, opens up into toffee and rubber, cardboard. Maybe some sulphur to help the hops? Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is grassy, crackers, oat biscuit, light citrus, quite a resinous finish with some spice. Some nice aspects to the flavour.

Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout
Cas. Malty with a whiff of gravy powder on the nose. Dark as befits an imperial stout but the tan top could be improved in terms of creamy texture. Taste has smooth roasted malt with a little fruit flitting through.and some coffee notes in the finish. Imperial stout is not an easy style to master. I have yet to find my archetype but this isn’t it.
