3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a glorious light amber with a bright golden edge and a thin white head. Good lacing down the glass. Zesty lemon and oily grapefruit peel aromas play around the nose. Light and smooth over the tongue. There is more of the slightly oily grapefruit in the taste which fills the mouth before lemon zests bursts through with a soft creaminess too, and becomes more apparent further down the glass. The grapefruit in the finish has a little coriander seed orange flavour which balances it well. A beer that majors on grapefruit peel, it is a wonderful accompaniment to a spicy noodle dish with a citrus smoothness that invigorates, smooths and lightly cuts through the palate.

Tasted this in the Courtyard, Earls Court, London. Cask handpump dispense. Cloudy straw in colour with a tight thin white head. Tart lemon drops in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Citric overtones to the pale malt base with lemon peel, fresh cut grass and gooseberry notes coming through. Peppery hops add a resiny bite to the aftertaste. Finish is sweet and dry. Another decent addition to the Adnams portfolio.
