3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a medium amber with a moderate white head. Aroma of spicey malt with some floral hops in there. Medium to weak body, flavour of pine and other floral hops, some strange spice mixture. Not unpleasant, but 1 was enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask handpull at CP&K Pimlico. I mean yes it has rose petal and fporal flowery notes in spades. Not sure I like it though. Bit thin in mouth too. White pepper and red berry fruit flavour. Just too much for me. Interesting but too much like a fruit infusion tea for me

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (handpump) at the White Horse on Parsons Green, 27 February 2011. Clear amber colour. Lasting cream head. Fair amount of citrus in the aroma. Quite strong herbal, spicy bitterness on the palate. A hint of sourness in the background. Very firm mouthfeel. I’d like to know exactly what goes into this beer. Unusual and quite interesting but I found it rather hard going.

Cask @ The Rake, London. Pours golden with no head visable. Low carbonation present. On the nose is flowers - rose and herbal notes. Drinks similar to tea but with hoppy bitterness for balance. Interesting stuff and I’d go back for another glass.
