UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Feb 2004 White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. A huge and very pleasant barley wine - a big rush of pale malt, splendidly and gently sweet, perfectly balanced with a delicate and floral hop envelope. Nice indeed. [3.2]

Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: Aroma when fresh on it an excellent mix of citrusy pineapple goodness, sweet pale malts, small toffee appleness too as it has been on a day or two. Taste is similarly flavoured and excellently balanced for the %, massivly dangerously drinkable stuff.

BF. Nose is quite aromatic with fresh tropical, lightly piney hops (some alcohol aswell). Palate starts off with fresh, with some kiwi fruit, finishing with some appley alcohol, well balanced, with a medium bitterness.

Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Golden beer, with a very loose froth head. Looked and smelt like a Golden. In fact, it tasted much like a Golden too, but a good one, with a nettley, crushing bitterness to finish. Never clocked this as a Barley, never even clocked it as being 7.5%. Enjoyed it though - cut through the spiciness of my accompanying Thai meal a treat.
