3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pale golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A biscuity malt, slightly wheaty, cereal nose, with a hint of citrusy hop. A dry taste, potent zesty flavour, loads of citrusy hops, followed by a balancing, smooth biscuity malt taste. The finish is dry and hoppy. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds Summer Beer Festival 2007, Heacham, Norfolk).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour with a slim and creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy with some background malt. Interesting taste, pretty bitter to begin, but this disappears leaving a virtually bitter-less finish. There is also some nice citrus and other light fruit along the way. Medium bodied. Very drinkable and pretty good too.

Re-rate: Aitken dispense system at the fantastic Bow Bar in Edinburgh. Train canceled, so had an hour to make a quick beeline here and back the the station to catch the next train. Yellow gold, clean snowy white head. Rustic sweet candy hops. Sweet, full bodied malt, candy/garden bitterness, just a tiny hint of resin in the finish. Pleasant old fashioned sort of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a rich, pure white foam cap. Aroma holds a lot of hay and mild citrus. Flavor is like juice, orange juice, nice and sweet, mild bitterness of zesty citrus and hay. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet, semi-sticky, plenty more juicy orange, tangerine and ripe lemon. Very good beer. (3.8)
Cask at the Metropolitan Bar, JDW - London. Pours perfectly clear, yellow-gold with a white foam head. Not great this time around. Some cheap white bread pale malt character with nips of creamy vanilla, white sugar and faint straw. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lemon meringue in the finish with light, doughy white bread. Meh. (3.1)
