2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma slightly fruity, mainly grape and some citrus, but dominated by a wine-like and slightly alcoholic hint. Appearance is great, a dark gold that doesnít reach copper, looks refreshing when poured with its small white head. Taste is slightly disappointing, there isnít much in terms of malt, itís light, and some of the fruit is gone leaving a flavour that is reminiscent of diluted cheap red wine or wine yeast. Even a tad vinegary. There is however a nice balanced and clean bitterness left after the flavours are gone. On the palate it is light. Overall it looks and smells better than it tastes. Maybe it wasnít well kept or Iím just not a fan of Topaz hops for aroma.

Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. There is an initial sharp perfumed bitterness, unripe gooseberry perhaps, however this is smoothed out by a more subtle, leafier note giving quite a delicate flavour. Decent biscuity malts, a pretty decent beer.
