4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 cask at the old moot hall inn, nottingham.
a beautiful beer, light, hoppy and very refreshing. the pump clip describes the beer as brewed in the ’pilsner’ style, but i doubt one would be able to identify this without prior knowledge. the only complaint is that at 3.5% it lacks a kick. still very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned - Handpump - Derby BF. A very pale beer (Is it lager or ale?) with a floral hoppy aroma. The taste is crisp, hoppy and, again, floral. A very nice beer whatever it actually is!

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Royal Oak, Ockbrook. Deep yellow body, snow white head, rather earthy aroma but a wonderfully creamy taste, not full-on clotted cream but a subtle Murry Mints creaminess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 This is described on the pump clip as a "cask pilsner" but apparently has Styrian Goldings hops and pale malts as well as lager malts. So it is something of a mixture between a "pilsner" and one of those light summer ales. Nonetheless it is a very pleasant quaffing beer. Very pale straw colour, very floral and very refreshing. Hoppy and aromatic on the nose, clean on the palate and quite dry on the finish, but with a hint of sweetness. Cask, Great British Beer Festival, August 2003

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. Pale gold colour. A light bodied and very subtle beer - the flavour is very restrained and delicate. Slips down easily with just a touch of malt and a light sprinkling of hops. More of a lager than an ale.
