2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Shoulder of Mutton, Strumpshaw (Norfolk) on 26th Oct 2013.
Pours a golden, clear look with a thinning white crown on top.
I found this rather bland in taste and weak in the nose: delicate citrus notes maybe, but otherwise instantly forgettable in every way.
I don’t like knocking the ’little guy’ but this didn’t do it for me at all. I know it was only 3.6% ABV, but it still lacked flavour and character.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with white head. Pretty decent quaffable session ale. Plenty of hop character with a buttery malt. Clean and fresh with a citrusy bite, a good palate cleanser. Good beer.
