3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft smooth palate, some bready malt, a bit of sweetness nicely balanced by the hops. Lacking much strength in the flavour but a perfectly acceptable session bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask handpull at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough, Hampshire. Golden ale, with a small white head. No carbonation. Citrus lemon, hoppy aroma that was a little unpleasant. Touch of honey comes through. Bitter finish. Somewhat disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand-pulled pint in ’The Wrekin’, a good real ale pub near me in Wellington, Shropshire: 8th June 2013.
Light golden citrus hop brew: refreshing but too simular to the host of golden brews using American (and sometimes New Zealand hops) hops that are flooding the UK market at the moment.
Looked and tasted OK but I like a bit of darkness in my beers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home on a sunny afternoon, 19th August 2012. Aroma is non descript, pours a nice light gold straw colour, palate is a little fizzy for my taste. Taste is very pleasant though, pineapple and peach comes though, you get the nice balanced hops and bitterness. A beer I would have again potentially

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Full pint, from cask @Edgar Wallace, London. A low shiny white head over a clear golden brown colored body. Quite weak hop aroma, actually. Faint citrus fruits and flowers, and a strange apple- fruitiness. Light-bodied and watered down in the mouth. Sourish-sweet malt character. Some bread and caramel. Mild fruity bitterness. Short bitter-ish ending.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From cask at Great British Beer Festival on 6 August 2008. Mid gold with a small and diminishing white head. Flowery US hop aroma with just a fleeting early whiff of sulphur. Hop character on the palate is prominent but not overwhelming. Mainly grass / nettles with a touch of tropical fruit. Very smooth and mellow mouthfeel. Drinks very easily. Perhaps could use a little more bite. Overall, tasty and enjoyable in a quite laid back fashion.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Old Fountain. Clear, rich gold pour with a foamy, white head. Aroma holds some nice hops, bit of pine and orange. Medium sweet flavor, some honey and bread, floral and juicy bitterness. Light bodied with fine, ideal carbonation. Balanced finish, light bready malts and lingering pine and citrus hops. Very good beer.
