Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Deep amber with a small creamy-bubbly head. Crisp, not too flavoursome with some very light pale malts evident.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Small white head. Clear deep yellow body with light carbonation. Fruity resiny gooseberry aroma with floral notes. Dry resiny wooden gooseberry taste. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel, slightly flat. Dry pineapple and wood aftertaste with resiny notes. Itís ok, but a bit over-ripe and low on anything else. (0.5l bottle, odd bins, Edinburgh.)

Bottle at home. Pours a light clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is absolutely bizarre - vinegar, raspberry, toasted marshmallow. Taste is just as bizarre - winey vinegar, tarte berries, fermented apple - sour and foosty tasting. I have a feeling this bottle may be off, so I do feel bad for giving this a low rating but itís all I have to go by. I will make a point of sourcing another in the hope this was just a bad batch/bottle.

6- 3 6+ 3 13 = 3.1
(Cask at Peterborough BF 2015)
Rich gold. Aroma isnít huge and is mostly of toffee. Taste has a hint of (non-hop) resin and minerals. The finish is in most respects similar to that of their Rhapsody (some good citrus and light grains) but with a little more toffee. The hops may build if one has a larger portion. A quite light and pleasant golden ale, though not an exciting one.
Unusually, Phil didnít have this.
