NOt so bitter either, this time I liked the fact they weren’t that dry. A little dark but still goldy.

Cask at GBBF 2009. Pours a pure golden colour with a thin white head. A lovely fruity hoppy aroma. The flavour is all malt with plenty of fruit flavor with some hints of citrus. The finish is a long malty finish with a lovley citrus aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Eight Bells, Alton, Hampshire. Orange gold with white head. Quite still and soft in character but with a juicy, malty fullness, there is an orange citrus to it. Quite bitter in the close, very pleasant.

Cask at the White Horse, 28th August 2008. Clear amber with a good white head, lively body and a subtle hop aroma. Great taste and palate - a perfect session bitter. The second Bowman beer I’ve had (the other being Quiver at GBBF) and they’ve both wowed me!

Cask, gravity at the Hampshire Bowman, Dundridge, Hampshire 7th June 2008 Pours mid gold with the smallest of white heads, looks pretty good. Quite a zesty, refreshing beer with plenty going on for the strength. Nice soft citrussyness, bitterness nice, has quite a bit of life, taste is very nice, I like this and think it makes a damn good session beer.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2010 Cask at The Guide Dog, Southampton- Pale gold in colour with a mild but pleasant hoppy aroma. A well balanced hoppy and malty taste make this a good session beer in my view.
