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!

Half, cask at the City Arms in Manchester. Clear amber body. Off-white head that dissipates quickly. Fragile lacing. Malt-fruity nose. Caramel malts in flavour supported by a fruity twist. Mild and dry bitterness to the finish. Rather well bodied. Above the average level. My last drink in Manchester on this trip – Leeds next. 08.07.2012.
