3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Old Windmill, Coventry on 28th October 2008, guest beer. Flavoursome for its strength, satisfyingly rounded and a good balance of hop and malt is maintained until the finish where malt begins to dominate. Clean and satisfying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. An orange coloured beer quite bright and looking like irn bru. The aroma has lovely US hops, with tangerines and oranges. The taste has more good hoppiness with citrus orange fruits. Very tasty and easy to drink. (7,4,8,3,14(3.6))
Tried again on handpump. This time it was very ordinary. Merely a hint of hop, and alittle sulphur note in the nose. Certainly no sign of any US hops. Very ordinary. I wonder why? (5,3,5,3,10(2.6))
