3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask handpump at The Maypole, Cambridge. Copper with a short and aerated head. Slight citrus, floral scent. Very carbonated but also quite watery. Bitter with a dry end. Lots of hop, quite nutty. Not particuarly complex but not bad.
Cask at the Townhouse, Ely. Golden brown, very clear, with not a lot of head. Grass and candy sugar aroma. Clean and crisp. The taste starts sweet and malty with hints of burnt sugar and golden syrup. There’s a bitter twist at the end, leading to a surprisingly bitter aftertaste, without quite leaving behind the malty sweetness. A cracking session bitter.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear garnet pour, soft head. Toasty malt nose with some leaves. Lightly sweet flavor, with sharp, toasty and almost smokey malts, then some herbal, leafy bitterness. Light in body with fine carbonation. Crisp, dry hop finish, citric and slightly astringent, with subtle malt sugar. Not bad. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
