3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Cock Hotel, Wellington (Shropshire) on 13th Feb 2014.
Golden and bright body with a good white head that gave some impressive lacing.
Floral nature to the aroma and taste initially, with some lingering yeastiness. Once into the beer you find an undertone of bitter hops below a slightly biscuity, light malt flavour.
A good honest session ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Cask@thevictoria, Walsall. Amber in colour with a good creamy lasting head. Aroma of mild hops and little hint of flora. Taste is of medium bitterness, again a touch floral. Palate is smooth a little creamy. An excellent beer from my local microbrewery. I will try the Backyard premium in the next few days in the same place.
