On cask at Travelers, Apperknowle - Clear yellow body, thick white head. Nose is sweet citrus, stone fruit and a pleasant sweetness. Taste is a nicely balanced sweet with the right amount of sharpness on the way out. Enjoyable, and ideal for quaffing whilst watching Apperknowle Cricket Club on the other side of the road in the summer evening sunshine.

Handpull cask at the Golden Lion, Bridgnorth. Light gold with some lacing but very little head. Lemon/grapefruit aroma with a noticeable sulphur whiff. The astringency is noticeably absent from the sweet juicy taste. Light body, and a real tongue-coater. I do tend to enjoy Acornís beers, and although this is only a notch higher than the average golden, itís a welcome notch.

Cask conditioned handpump Duck & Drake Leeds 14/07/14. A golden beer with a tight white head. A typical Yorkshire golden. Hoppy and bitter with biscuity malts. Drinkable and of its kind. There is a bit of perfume later.

Imagine this...Youíre sitting in the beer garden of a fine Mancunian pub (And yes, besides it being a fine Mancunian pub, itís also sunny outside), Mesís round. He returns to the table with two beers, this being one. Ok, as a normal human being/ratebeerian you acknowledge and proceed with your rate but, as a fan of The Mighty Boosh, all you hear in your mind is Sandstorm, storm of sand. At this point it becomes quite the challenge to rate...
Golden with a white head. Nose of ginger, grassy hop and soap with some fruity, earthy malts under. Quite a bitter grassy hop bite and a sort of appley, earthy malt wash. Nice dry bitter finish...Iíll be back to polish you later, you little pine tart...
