2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 500 ml from Open All Hours in Keswick (Cumbria-Engl).
Ale golden, flat, sweet floral aromas, lemon and honey on hopped bottom. In mouth, we discover, moreover, a malty taste of apricot and biscuit. Good balance of bitterness. But it is not a "vintage". Just one bitter as there is so much.

Had this at the Cambridge beer festival, wasn’t taking too many notes that day. It doesn’t stand out too much for me on the day. Light and drinkable but with no truly notable characteristics. More cereal than hop.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2009 Bottle from a farmshop near Amble, Northumberland, filtered but not pasteurised. Excellent blossomy herbal hop, lemon, honey and biscuit aroma straight out of Munich. Bright gold with a fast diminishing snowy head. Full and slippery on the palate, sliding down beautifully with a flourish of grassy citrus, lychee, crackerbread, lingering biscuity malt and blossom. Lovely soft aromatic bottled English with a dash of Thornbridge Kipling about it, upstaging the cask version on this evidence. Fresh, clean and balanced perfectly between juicy NZ hops and biscuity malt. A better, erm....Kiwi-influenced English helles you will not find.

Bottle from a gift pack I got for Xmas. Looks good, typical golden ale. Lacks a bit on the nose tho! Has a slight malty sweetness, the hops are a bit underplayed though. Overall not bad, not great either!
