3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Castle Inn, Cambridge. Clear amber pour with a broken white head. The aroma is fruity and spicy. The flavour is very bitter, spicy and with citrus grapefruit notes. This is a truly exceptional ale from Adnams who should be congratulated for brewing out of the box. It's uber refreshing and my kind of session ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Haymarket. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head that dies away quite quickly. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, lemon, yeast and grassy hops. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mild bitterness and a nice dry finish. Lingering yeast and orange again. Tasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask in the Windsor Castle, W8. A middle amber/copper coloured bitter, this is a light bodied ale with some summer session potential. Definitely a different hopping than the rest of the Adnams stable, with more of a citric feel, but it was a little more peach or mandarin than the promised grapefruit, and it felt a little artificially sweet to me, missing the real juicy potential of these hops. Decent enough for a change.
