Cask. Straw gold with a creamy white head. Lemon and lime nose. Massive bitter kick in the mouth. A proper bitter. Lemon, lime, grapefruit. There's a nice sweet biscuit malt there too which tempers the finish. Making it pleasant and sessionable.

50cl bottle from Tanners, Shrewsbury. Pours cloudy and golden with nice head. The nose is of citrus and cereal. Some earthiness. The taste is more of the same. The palate has medium structure, a creamy texture with a clean finish. Overall, a solid ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled pint in ’The Park Inn’ Wellington, Shropshire on 4th Aug 2012.
Looked a bit insipid to be honest, very pale compared to the bottled version which was a light amber colour to start with. This also came out with a slight haze, so maybe it wasn’t at it’s best and hadn’t been looked after too well!
The beer had a white head that produced some good lacing (unlike the bottled one).
The nose appears to have got hoppier than I remember the bottled version being too, as was the taste, those malty flavours being pushed towards the back as the hops gained strenght.
Enjoyed it, but it seemed a completely different beer to the bottle I had back in 2008.

Cask at The Globe, King’s Lynn
Golden color, hazy, with small head. The aroma and flavor show some malt, cereals and cleaning products, indicating some improper cleanings of the lines (or glass).
