2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Fox and Crown, Nottingham. Gold with a large white head. Spicy hop aroma. Some citrus in the taste. Mid bitter finish. Not a bad beer, better than the other two Alcazar offerings I tried today, but it didn’t quite have the freshness you look for in a summer golden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Fox & Crown, Basford, Nottingham. This pale beer has a soft fruity aroma and a well-balanced flavour with some grapefruit on the finish. It’s not up to par with Castle Rock Harvest Pale, but it’s perfectly enjoyable, especially as a session beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (handpump), GBBF, August 2005. Golden, clean and grassy. The hops are herbaceous rather than floral. Odd how this beer divided opinions. I go down the middle. Entirely fit for the purpose but, with so many similar beers at the festival, this didn’t make any overwhelming impression (good or bad) on my tastebuds. I’d drink this again happily but wouldn’t actively seek it out.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask (GBBF): Eggy fart aroma. Big fruits too. Gold with no head. Lacks body and taste. Not very good. Strange that I didnt like this and others did?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at GBBF 05. Yellow, no head. Nice aroma of juicy hops. Pretty good taste - juicy hops again, with a lemon tartness and a soured cardboard, errr sourness. Doesn’t taste very window (incidentally).

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2005. A bright golden coloured beer with a good citrus hop aroma. The taste has some good hoppiness but the malts taste a little past it. Not fresh enough for me.
