UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Mid gold. very sweet lemonade aroma. Citric taste, rather artificial lemony, like eating a cheap lemon meringue pie. Really not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bright golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A very hoppy nose, floral and a touch citrusy. The taste is dry with a fresh hop flavour that is over-powered by a bready, yeasty taste that does spoil the beer somewhat. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Cask at the Bridge House, not the nicest pub I’ve been to! Nice flowery taste, the hops are dominating, but more for aroma than for bitterness. Lingering dry finish. Not a great beer, but I would not object to having this available as a steady pint.

Cask at The Royal Standard, Wooburn Common. Blonde coloured. Fruity, floral and citric hop aroma. A bit of sweetness and citrus fruit in the flavour but overall not enough hop character and ends up rather average.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Colour is golden. Very nice nose with fresh, grassy hops and citrus (grapefruit, lemon). Fresh hoppy, somewhat bready and slightly sweetish taste dominated by hops (citrus: grapefruit, lemon) and a dry bitter finish. Very summery with a characteristic taste of American hops. Refreshing and nice.
