3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask gravity, Coventry BF, 13/04/12. Handsome, bright gold body with a thick tuft of foam. Curry leaf, urinal cake, pine aroma. Drying, full, buttered lemon flavour with finishing biscuit. Almost Sorachi. Rubbery, almond tones as from a much stronger lager; vanilla. Not wholly convinced.

Cask at the Malt and Hops. I didn’t think much of this, it’s not much of a pilsner. Some hoppy bitterness and not much else.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Grill, Aberdeen. It pours slightly hazy straw yellow, with a big, fluffy white head. The nose is white bread, toasted malt, hay and floral. The taste is lemon, lime, toasted white bread, straw, hay, soap, floral and light honey sweetness, with a light bitter finish. Light body and soft carbonation. A refreshing, easy drinking cask light ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Oxford Bar, Edinburgh. Gold with white head. For a pilsner ale crossover this came over really quite well, oily lemony hops on a light, biscuit malt background. Pretty decent.
