2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are light biscuit malts with bready notes and hints of chocolate. Earthy autumn fruit with some leafiness. Flavours are dry and nutty black tea (again, today) with toasted malts. Herbal with soft spices and a light fruity bitterness. OK.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Craigís tasting. Fizzy, sugary, sherbet, sweet toffee, a bit too overcarbonated for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sherbet, lemon, caramel and toffee apples on the nose. It pours cloudy and looks like an orange squash. This the best of the beet because in the mouth other than a touch of whisky its quite bland a real pity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy uninviting appearance. Orange with lots of sediment floating around. Some hops are present but it is hard to find a dominating flavour. Dissapointing

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity aroma has notes of gooseberry, red berries, an earthy grainy touch. Taste is initially slightly grainy, fruity, dry, almost soapy hoppy overtones, in the middle part the lively carbonation enlaces the tongue with neutral prickling; earthy, grainy, rye-like finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Cheers Ash! Lovely amber colour, big white head. Bit too big, lots of bubbles, carbonation a bit high. Aromas of dried ginger, apple, caramel. Falls apart after the aroma though, not a lot else going on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Vinomondo. Pours a lovely amber colour with a nice generous head. The nose has ginger biscuits. The taste has more ginger biscuits and fresh apples. The palate is close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry finish. The carbonation probably makes it more full of body than youíd expect from the alcohol. The ginger is a little dominant but itís good.
