3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Great lacing. Aroma of lemon sherbert, peach and grapefruit. Flavour of citrus, herbs, biscuit and a slight metallic tang. Not a million miles away from the citrussy brilliant of Buxtonís (also excellent) Spa. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. Sharp and sessionable. A lovely Golden Ale - much better than on cask.
Cask from Cloisters (August 2013). Clear pale golden body with a thin white head that fades. Light lacing marks. Almost no aroma - grass, straw and lime. The flavour is very subtle - soft citrus and straw. No bitterness on the finish. Thin body with an oily texture and very soft carbonation. A lovely low-ABV Golden Ale, but not the most interesting or complex. (Rated: 3.2.)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 24, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Craft Beer Co (Clerkenwell). Mostly clear pale gold with a smallish lasting rocky white head. Lovely aroma - pungently catty, nice and bitter but not overwhelming. Taste - wow, even more one-dimensional - what minimal grainy malt the aroma promised is even more minimal - mostly just pungent catty bitterness. Light body, astringent, light carbonation and a long pungent drying bitter finish - I love it, but itís a bit aggressive.

On cask at Royal Oak, Hurdlow - A clear gold body, thick lasting white head. Loads of hop nose, the citrus kind, lots of grapefruit and tropical notes that give a great idea of what is to come Good creamy palate, with a good sour hit of citrus fruit. Quality, and only 3.6%? A great night ahead!!!!
