3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Alma, London, Oktoberfest Beer Festival. Pours a clear, amber-red with a foamy, off-white head. Holds a hoppy aroma, a little soapy, with some interesting, divergent malts. Nice flavor, lightly sweet, with caramel and a dynamic hop profile. Medium in body with average carbonation and a very smooth mouthfeel. Finishes bitter with light breadiness and earthiness. Interesting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Southampton Arms.
Sweet caramel malts, way too sweet for my liking, grass, sugar, honey, floral hops, very spicey and something which just does not grab me at all and I’m really sorry for this crap rate. Loved the Elisabeth but this is not one for me. I expect the brown bitter brigade will lap this up.

An amber bitter, the spicy bitterness is mostly well balanced with malt. Notes of pepper, red fruit and a little sulphur. Crisp rather than smooth. A good best bitter.
