4th August 2010. GBBF.
Presented as ’Bob’s Brewing Chardonnayle’. Clear gold beer, suddy white head. Light semi dry palate. Nice light orange hops - a little tangy. Some floral sweetness. Some grape (or is that the power of suggestion in the name?). Nice beer - if it was less dry this would be 3.5 or 3.6.

harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Cask at Bricklayers Arms Yorskhire Festival 09. Clear paleish gold, thin white head. Bit of butter on the aroma. Supposed to be made with US hops. Well they may have waved some hops near the kettle at some point. It’s a sub Summer Lightning Me2 beer.

A Mes rate: gravicask at the Bricklayers Yorkshire fest.
Clean pale gold with a thiin white head and decent condition. Earthy malt, faint grassy hops and maybe a very slight hint of diacetyl but it’s not a spoiler. Straight forward bitter finish. Decent stuff overall.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 ’Bob’s Chardonnayle’, Solihull ’08. About the only beer left I hadn’t tried by last orders Saturday afternoon, so no option but to plunge in despite my reservations and the excruciatingly punny name. Glad I did. Lovely ripe tropical fruit aroma touching on mango and pineapple. Fine lemony citrus hoppage tempered with fibrous oaty, biscuity pale malt afters etc. Goes on and on. Didn’t get anything especially vinous or perfumey, just a really solidly hopped, tropical-accented GA drinking way below its fairly hefty ABV.
