3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Barearts can be rather hit and miss, which is part of their charm, but this one was a definite winner. First of all it was in excellent condition - lively without being over-carbonated - with a lasting white head. Colour is mid gold tending towards amber. The Cascades are quite evident and provide a good hoppy bite, with plenty of citrus and a flowery back note. Good bitterness backed up by light biscuity malt. Nicely balanced and very drinkable. Not entirely sure what’s traditional about it but certainly very good.

A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
Gazy gold with a decent white head. Good slightly earthy malt with a good lick of caramel. Tasty grassy U.S. hoppage with a decent amount of bitterness. Nice and dry. Basic but enjoyable.
