A fairly nice run of the mill ale. Its fine to drink in the sun, but nothing special.

On cask at Generous Briton, Loughborough. I can't grasp batemans beers. This had a weird aftertaste, like old ash trays. Some caramel in the background. Meh!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in April 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt base gives a touch of tart gooseberry and lychees. Aftertaste is redolant with strong booming notes of citric hop resins which continue into the dry metallic finish. An ok spring ale but better examples out there.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
cask at the Beehive Inn in Edinburgh - Pours golden with heavy lacing typical of cask ales. Thereís a mild malt aroma and a flavor is sweet bready malt with mild hops and a light, lingering bitterness. This brew is another mild, unremarkable bitter.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at the Biddestone Arms, Biddestone, nr Chippenham] Pours a dull pale amber with a moderate white head and a slight sparkle. Rather harsh citrus bitterness at first, followed by a hint of spice and some straw with a dry finish. Grew on me the more I drank, but still felt boring at the end. Still, it seems to have achieved one of the better marks Iíve given to this consistently poor brewer.
