Cask at Southampton Arms. Clear gold with a slight white head. Grassy, light pine nose. Flavor is faintly sweet, quite bitter, tones of earth and grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly sticky finish, grassy with weedy hops. Perhaps to much rtaw hops. Alright.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Pembury Tavern on 26 February 2011. I originally misread this as Spelt Select, so was expecting some sort of speciality grain thing. It turned out to be a mildly grassy golden ale with a light biscuity malt presence and a quite soft mouthfeel (not helped by the fact that it was rather flat). OK, but I’m not sure that this hop variety has enough oomph to drive a single hop beer of this type. Fine as a lager substitute I suppose.
