Cask at the Beamish beer festival. Amber with a white head. A fairly standard bitter. Some malt flavour, some hop flavour, but nothing stands out. Very average.

Cask at Gardeners Arms, Lewes. Really citrusey and some hop character coming through as well, but not enough to make it memorable. Decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12.
Clear golden with a small white head that soon thins.
Fruit on the nose and some light hop tones, not a huge aroma.
Taste follows, hints of tropical fruit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter finish.
The classic 6-3-6-3-12 formation says it all. Dribkable and whelming!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle from a range of local beers in the village shop in Upavon, Wilts. A bright amber pour with a ring of white head; floral aroma, perhaps elderflower; soft and gently bitter in the mouth with a light berry fruitiness and then a prickly bitterness before a clean refreshing finish. A light, subtle, beer - very English is style.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lunch-time hand pulled pint in ‘The White Hart’, Shifnal on 20th June 2012.
Light amber body with a creamy off-white head that produced some good lacing.
Weak flavours from the start, more malts than hops in my opinion and not a lot of maltiness either: aroma was only slight hop/malt/yeast esters, the taste just a hint of beery ingredients. Leaning towards boring!
