4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Amber/gold with a white head. An amazingly classy hop profile (for a regional brewer) sings from the first sniff and sip. Very floral and resinous with hints of grapefruit and tangerines. The best Adnams beer Iíve ever tried (Iím currently thinking)!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
JDW Autumn Beer Fest 2011, Rochester. Body is a little dry and light bodied for an "American-style" anything. The beer does have pleasant American hops, though used in the English golden ale style; perhaps more noticeably than average. A nice beer, if a little dry.
