2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Standard amber/copper colour. Rather cloudy. As others have remarked, this had a very sulphurous aroma - maybe more down to the condition than the beer itself. Some citric hop in the flavour and a rather sharp, bitter finish. Drinkable, but not great. Cask (gravity dispense), Bedford Beer Festival 2004.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
BF. Eggfart and sulphur in the aroma, some light lemony tang inthe finish, a bit grainy and thin aswell, perhaps this one wasn’t in good condition.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned - Gravity Dispense - Bedford Beer Festival. Really uninviting sulphuric aroma to this hazy copper coloured beer. The taste though is better with some good thick sticky hop flavours but there is a throat grabbing acidity. Curious.
