330ml bottle. Sweetish malt and fairly zesty, lemon hops. First impression good but not a session beer to me as it the citrus quality was sliughtly overpowering.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at the Blue Moon, Cambridge. Light to mid-gold. Not much head but there is some lacing. Grain with a bit of lemon and soap. A reasonable aroma, but not all that much better than a mediocre cask golden or a half-arsed ’craft’ pils. Taste is a refreshing bittersweet with a bit of savoury cereal in the finish. Too flat for my liking. Not good. Disappointed in Adnams, who do some cracking ales along with the odd pointless one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hoppy aroma with a background hint of pale malt. Dry mouthfeel. A mild bitter hop taste, some citrus fruit and a grassiness, then a dry pale malt flavour, bringing a biscuity, woody and a slight vanilla spice. The finish is mild bitterness and hoppy.

Frankly it just doesn’t make any sense. Hop is just too extreme and sherberty for the body of the beer. Adnams yeasty apple aroma, but the rest is terrible. Mind you according to Jonathan Adnams, it wasn’t made for me anyway. As he says in The Publican, “But this beer is for people who have made the decision not to drink cask beer.
