3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading] Amber-gold with a small white head. Biscuit, hazelnut and a good, well balanced pithy grapefruit bitterness. A bit of pine in the finish brings sweetness to the palette. Unusual for Adnams in being hop rather than malt-led, but unlike many hoppy beers it’s still well balanced with malt giving a satisfying mouthfeel. Great stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Larry, Nuneaton. Beer of The Festival So Far for me, but I’ve only just realised there’s a festival on. Brilliant gold, pure white slick. Juicy, honeyed grapefruit and lemon rind aroma-8. Soft and perfumed with well-wrung green hop notes, passion fruit, lychee and lime. Cashew afters, and a suggestion of coriander. Never expected this kind of quality from Adnams.
