2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki) - is this 2011 or 2012?
Refreshing light fruity aroma, supermarket own-brand fruit juice. Pale, brief loose head. Taste like a wimpy version of the aroma. Thin flat watery palate. Just some sweet soft grains, and really cheap indistinguishable fruit juice mix. Meh. Classic why-do-they-bother golden ale.

Had this is 2013, go figure. Golden, thin head, fruity, honeyish hop character. Fresh, with a splash of sticky pale malts to complement the clementine hops.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ The Cannon, Newport Pagnell. Light gold. Smells of ammonia (read: cat piss). Some nice tropical fruit in the background. Not sure this beer is at its best. Taste is saccharin sweet but has a balancing bitter finish. Not good.

Bree Louise. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light and smooth. Very modest carbonation in the light semi dry palate. Distinct honey and a little ripe orange. Light dry finish. Nice tasting beer but really needs a bit more decent carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask in Smith’s Tavern, Ashbourne. A pale golden ale with a small white head. Mild citrus aroma. Some good tropical fruit hop flavours going on, but this feels watery and need the flavours to be stronger.
