3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall. I have generally found Archers beers to be quite solid. Its just the sheer number of them that I find rather off-putting. This one is no exception. A clean and crisp pale golden ale, maybe with a touch of wheat. Citric tang and a decent hoppy bite on the finish. Nothing outstanding here but perfectly pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is balanced sweet golden malts. Taste is similar with some citrus hops making it increadably balanced and easily to drink at this strenght, with maybe hints of belgiun yeast?

Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Pretty similar to the Golden but a bit stronger. Citrus hops, sweet malt, medium bodied, quite dry. Good.

Cask@The Red Lion, Isleworth, London. Quite nice, pleasant cask ale. The name ’Crystal Clear’ led me to believe this was going to be a lagery bland sort of ale, but it was much better than that. Some nice lightly sweet honeyed malts. Some light floral, citrusy hops. Dries out a touch towards the end. Quite pleasant and innofensive.

Cask conditioned - handpump - NBC Club Northampton. Yet another new Archers beer. This one is golden in colour and is crystal clear! The aroma is lemony and a bit wheaty and the taste is more of the same. A nice beer which I think is an English take on a Kristallweizen but there’s not enough wheat. Drinkable.
