On cask at Cloisters on 15th June. Appearance - golden amber with a nice tight head. Nose - floral and lemony. Taste - light stalk thing going on, but mostly weíre in lemon and orange territory here. Some biscuit at the back but mostly the citrus fruit. Palate - light bodied. Creamy middle section and balanced bitter finish. Overall - good.

Keg tap at the Rake, Borough. Golden, clear with a spotty white head. Gooseberry, apple and line in the simple but enticing smell. The taste doesnít deliver as well: itís bittersweet, fruity and slightly gummy. Medium to long bitter finish with gooseberry fool, elderflower cordial and Gummi bears in the aftertaste. I want to live it more than I do, but itís not all that exciting at the end of the day.

Roosters Londinium
Keg tap at the Rake, Borough. Purple-black, very translucent with a small cream-coloured head. Liquorice, charcoal, and bramble all feature in the light aroma (I donít get coffee at all). Sweet taste. The burnt malts are pushed to the background in favour of sweet blackberry and hazelnut. Very light body with heavy carbonation. Far more refreshing than your average porter, but lacking the body and depth of the best representations of the style. So a trade-off, but not an impossible one. Coffee porter though? I just donít get that.

Taste of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some bready malts, slight fruit and subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, roasted chocolate bitterness in the finish.

33cl can picked up at The Postern Gate (JDW) and enjoyed at home on 04-Jun-2017 in a snifter. Hazy orange amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of caramel, sweet malt, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange and floral hops - a little like a hoppy marmalade. Light bitterness. Nice, although a little on the sweet side.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 6/6/2017. Clear gold in colour, with a slight, white, head. Aroma of tangerines, grapefruit and melon, with some grassy hops. Flavour had more citrus and tropical fruits, and a touch of biscuity malt, leading to a lingering, dryish. Pleasant drinking.

Lane. Ciemnozłote, przechodzące w bursztyn, lekko opalizujące. Piana dość szybko opadła do obwůdki. Bardzo przyjemny aromat czarnej porzeczki, a pod nią truskawka i lekko przypieczona skůrka chleba. W smaku słodkie owoce leśne i czarna porzeczka uzupełnione słodową kontrą z nieprzesadzonym karmelem. Goryczka średnia, wysycenie średnie w kierunku niskiego. Fajne sesyjne piwo.

Cask in The Beer Engine, Skipton on 9th April 2017. Light amber body, weak white head. Citrus esters flow from the brew, you choose the various fruits (mango, grapefruit, lime, lemon or oranges). The taste is also a blend of citrus flavours, again name your fruits. Fairly dry and obviously full of hops: decent, if a little too citrusy for my palate.

Keg at DH Charlotte Street. It pours opaque jet black with a medium beige head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, earthy, charred wood, ash, umami, tobacco, whisky, dark fruits, dried fig, plum, grape and candy. The taste is dry, bitter, rich roasted malt, charred wood, earthy, salted liquorice, umami, light alcohol, whisky, coffee grounds, cacao and a touch of dark fruits. Finish is charred and lingers. Medium - full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth - feel. Interesting and good depth of flavour. One of their best.
