Triple fff Hunky Dory
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. An attractive copper coloured beer with a loose white head; old fashioned malty aroma; a citrus taste to start with a biscuit body, then some bitter orange marmalade to finish. A proper best bitter.

Triple fff Hunky Dory
I was going to add ’Forward Pass’, as a new Six Nations themed beer, however I suspect it was just a rebadged version of this. Cask at Swan, Farnborough. A funky fruity aroma, but dialed down low. Light chestnut. Off-white head, starts off pretty lively before fading slightly. Light bitter. Malts. Some underlying sourness. But really not much going on, so like a rugby match in that respect. Light. Soft carbonation. An easy finish. Goes down easily enough but so would a flat coke, which would be just as inspiring tastewise.

The Ogilvy, Woking. Hazy malt aroma. A mild??? Dark amber at the most. Thin but persistant white head. Bitter to sour. Smooth and creamy. Slightly suspicious that this is the wrong beer?! More like a bog standard bitter.

On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - deep amber to red with a decent head. Nose - a hint of stewed apples. Taste - oranges and biscuits. Orange liqueur even. Bitter orange pith on the end. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry bitter finish. Overall - very interesting if a bit gnarly.
