On cask
This was no nearly as good as the other Blue Monkey taps that I have tried. That said Ill be getting a few pours at the City Beer Festival next month to get more of a feel for the brewery. Maybe this is an aberration.

Aroma / Appearance - The coppery base was void of much life. Glazed orange rings and chunks of lemon wedge combined into a gently hopped aroma profile.

Flavor / Palate - The light fluid body was quick to sweep across the palate. Chocolate orange eggs watered down by a half liter of sparkling water tickled the throat. The consequence was an easy to drink beer but also one that was ultimately forgettable. On the plus side I only had to finish a half pint.

Off cask at royal oak Wirksworth. Pretty standard kind if pale ale. Enjoyable enough I would say.

Mason & Taylor Hop Festival. Clear gold beer, no real head. Does have a mildy crisp palate, semi dry. Interesting beer! he hops are initially a little sour. Guava and papaya with a drop of mango thrown in. Rapidly gets sweeter towards the crisp dry finish which has some minerals. Intriguing!

Cask gravity at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop BF. Clear orange gold colour with lasting white head. Toasted toffee flavour. Tasty enough although a bit sweet after the ultra dry beers from the last few. Dry dusty finish. Ok

DanielBrown (3790) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2011
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Slightly spritzy golden. Fizzy, markedly fizzy on the tongue. Good gentle hop taste. Balanced, but perhaps a little watery. Goodish.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2010
Cask - Fat Cat, Norwich. Poured orange with a very slight haze and a small, fading white head. Lovely tangerine citric hops, toasty malts and a touch floral on the nose. Fresh and dry orange flavours and grassy, citric hops in the finish. Light to medium body, low to medium carbonation with a medium length finish.

berkshirejohn (4505) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
Cask at the Hobgoblin, Reading. Straw coloured with a thin cream head that laced the glass nicely; aroma of straw and hay; light refreshing hay flavour with a touch of citrus; and a sustained light bitter finish. A pleasingly refined pint.

maeib (8672) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Swan & Rushes Leicester (The people group crawl). A vibrant gold coloured beer with a white head. The aroma has nice citrussy fruity hoppy notes with peach and orange showing. Hoppy and fruity citrus in the mouth with a bit of Amarillo prickle. A tasty beer again from the monkey.
