2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask @ the Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Light amber in colour with a decent head. The nose has a little bit of apple coming through against a malt background. The taste is similar - fairly basic bitter really but inoffensive. The palate is light to medium in body and texture and the finish is fairly clean. So so!

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Vaults, Knowle, Solihull. Golden Brown Pour with a big white frothy head and surprisingly little lace. Malty slightly metallic aroma. There’s malt and caramel in the slightly sour flavour with a little liqourice in the aftertaste. Not much bitterness it has to be said, but a very decent refreshing ale, more suited to the summer months.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On cask at the White Hart, Pirbright, Surrey on Xmas Day 2011 (badged as ’Jolly’).
Light amber in colour with a thin head and little lacing as I began to drink.
Slight citrus and some straw flavours in this beer, bitter with a more bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel very average, a little thin.
The kind of pint you’re happy to finish and move on to something different, that said not unpleasant to the extent I’d never have again, it would be low down the list though!
Didn’t make me jolly!

Cask at Baxter’s Court, JDW, London. Pours rich gold with a creamy, off-white head. Woody malt nose with faint leaves. Nice flavor, decently balanced with toasty pale malts, some dry wood and dry, toasty grass bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp finish, moderately sweet with some nice, toasted bread, mild woody and lightly grassy bitterness. A solid bitter in general.

I had it under the name Eat, Drink, and Be Jolly at the Piccadilly pub in Manchester. Light amber gold with a simple off-whie lasting head. Smells of malt, caramel, light hop citrus and orange. Nice flowery smell. Medium oily body. Sweet fruity peach malt start with a simple dry hop bitter finish. Common enough light bitter.
