Cask - amber with a creamy white head. Thick lacing and good retention. Aroma is malty, lemony and grass with some fruity hints. Taste of malts, light roasted, a little bready, slightly fruity and a light bitterness. Good stuff.

Cask at Les Douvres, St. Martin, GY. Smooth and fresh beginning. Slightly bitter-typical mainpart, malt in a nice balance to the bitterness. Nice ale aroma. Quite dry but still highly drinkable. The aftertaste is smooth, bitter-malty with a nice dry ale-typical finish! Nice Beer!!

Fruity aroma. Smells a bit like apples. Golden brown colour. Deep reddy amber. Very sweet tasting with a bitter, sickly aftertaste. Surprisingly sweet, almost tastes like honey. Overall not a massive fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque golden yellow with creamy thick white foam head. Lacing and lip sticking. Aroma is quite hoppy, and tastes quite bitter too. Something else there, cannot define. (Leeds 201402)
