6th July 2013
Black Country Beano. Cask at the Waggon & Horses. Clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is smooth, light and softish. Really nice marmalade fruity hops. Light floral flavour. Integrates well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours golden with white head. Not refreshing and easy to drink as this style should be. Hard work, herbs and the alcohol is too predominant to kill any flavour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale ale high on bitterness but not without plenty of tropical fruit taste. Clear golden, fairly crisp with a small head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Lower Heyford, Oxon. Gold with white head. Quite a full bodied, malty beer, nice graininess, bread crusts, baked note then delivering quite a subtle herby hop flavour. Pretty decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 22/09/12. A light golden coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A nice citrussy hoppy beer with a hint of witty spice. Good hop profile throughout. Clean tasty and well brewed. Impressed with Byatts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Bernie's Solihull. Cloudy straw pour with a thin white bubbly head and some lace. This beer is not widely available and I'm glad I found it. It's more of an IPA than a golden ale with a wonderful sour bitterness and a lingering palate. Look it up. You won't be disappointed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned. Pours a diaphanous straw colour with a piled, unmoving, snow-white mousse. Sharp, zesty aroma like lemon tart filling at first with gorgeous stewed greenery, Sorachi Ace-like satsuma peel, anise and pineapple emerging as it warms. But this is a brew to be slugged cold- chilled, even; crisp, tanging, infused with sunshine. Reminds me of how JHB used to taste to me when I first discovered hops. Brazenly Pacific hops ringing out; grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple core, guava. Lingers with just a little sweetness, but not too much: Rich Tea dunked in black Darjeeling. Just lovely. Might order a case. Call me a homer but Byatt’s are moving into Oakham territory with this ferocious, spiky, tropically-accented little beast, and I love them for it.
