3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Old Poet’s Corner, Ashover - Hazy gold with slight head. Big fruity aroma, peachy then just a touch grainy, malty on drinking. The hops show through, quite citrusy, sharp, the body remains a touch thin perhaps but still pretty drinkable. Still okay mind you.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump at the Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 27-04-09 Pours gold with a thin white head. Like the Mauldons Cuckoo this also has a touch of the floral about the nose along with some honey. The strength is apparent but there it doesn’t detract from the drinking experience. Plenty of honey, sweet malts, quite tangy but backed up with that sweet twist. This is actually quite bitter at times. A nice beer. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.5

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ London Drinker 25:
A vibrant yellow hue and as pale as decently allowable. Almost flourescent and uncomfortably close to urine.
Lemon squash nose with the slightest hint of bluke cheese. Interesting.
Very lemony, chardonnay style beer. Big, mouth-filling flavours of ripe fruit and a tongue drying bitterness give way to airy summer cereals.
This is a very interesting little number.
