Medieval Priestís Hole
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours brown with no head - looks pretty rubbish. Big cool, green mint aroma. Light sweet flavor with more cooling mint leaf up front, followed by mild milk chocolate in the back. Light to medium bodied with fine, soft carbonation. Cooling mint finish, some menthol, with a tiny bit of cocoa. Novel. The mint dominates.

Cask conditioned at Leicester Beer Festival í14. Black with cream head. Thick chocolate and mint flavour, just wrong in beer, works like a dental mouthwash. Yuk.

Cask Free Trade Newcastle. Very pale aromatic beer. Peach & apricot dominate, a bit flowery and soapy in the middle. Very soft and deceiving for this strength.

Should have been great but on this tasting not my cup of Earl Grey. Two pints in the Bree Louise, Coburg Street; straw colour, light in colour, minimal head but unmistakeable tang of Thai fish sauce.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 11/01/14. Extremely dark mahogony brown verging on light black with a moderately appointed beige covering. Nose is a little thin, light cocoa powder, toffee, dark malts. Taste comprises vanilla, chocolate, sweet tasting, dark malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying closure with light roast malt tones. Ok porter but nothing to seek out in the future.

Bree Louise. Cask. Opaque black - brown beer, no head. Palate is smooth with modest carbonation. Very smooth and light dark malts, whispers of coffee and dark chocolate. Nicely integrated fruit - plum coulis/jam. Very light touch of spice before a semi dry finish. Nicely joined up.

Medieval Dragon Slayer IPA
Pale gold, no head (gravity pour). Smells and tastes sweet and grainy, slight floral & nettle hints in the foreground. Little to no hop presence at all. Full of residual sugar, pure hangover juice.

On cask at Chesterfield Alehouse - Deep ruby body, thin white head, nose is overwhelming mint. Taste is a little cocoa, and the mint again, with some nutty coffee bitterness at the back. Rather thin mouthfeel, but all you are left with is a memory of overpowering mint.

Cask, The Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Dark brown with red tints and a beige foam. Aromas are floral with mixed spices and red berries. Earthy and very herbal with leafy, minty notes. Lactose with thin coffee and chocolate. Flavours are after eight mints with light lemon and more mnt in mouthwash. Quite thin bodied but interesting. My apologies for my stab at a style.

Cask @ The Last Plantagenet (JDW), Leicester. Nice golden colour. Head disappears quickly which makes it look like cider. Aroma is sweet wort and taste is same. Very thin mouthfeel. It's nice enough though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Cask): Clear pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of berries, grapefruit, lemon. Flavour is very sweet, overly so. Grapefruit, berries and malt dominate. The finish is too sweet, almost sherbert like - puts you off drinking more than one pint.

An amber, musty smelling beer with a near whisky taste and poor finish. Hopefully not conditioned correctly when I drank it!

Medieval Dragon Slayer IPA
This pours golden with a nice white head that lingers. Floral aroma with almost a peachy smell in there too. On drinking its a really smooth IPA with the mouth feel of a really good bitter. Its really well balanced not massively bitter like some IPAs you get some bitternes, some nice hoppy flavours but you can still make out some sweetness and flavours from the malt. A very nice beer, it went down too easy for something of 8% abv. Would definitely try again.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite a sweetish, light beer, malty, marmalade, orange type note. Not a particularly hoppy beer but reasonable enough.

Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest í13. Gold with white head. Quite a flowery, dryish beer with more than a hint of peach, quite strong really, in addition there is a honeyed flavour to it. Good depth and very pleasant.

Cask conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington 12/11/12. A brown beer with a whitish head and lace. This was insanely fruity. Sweet and jammy, both in the mouth and the nose. A bit false really but tasty in some places.
