2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
17th Feb 2012: Hand pulled pint in The Wrekin, Wellington, Shropshire.
Clear and almost bright golden body with a small but full head of white bubbles that tried to hang around.
Weak nose: some floral hop content, but no malt notes I could find.
The flavours were fruity and floral: again not overly strong and with no malt input I could detect: the high proportion of corn and wheat might have something to do with the lack of maltiness of course.
Pleasant enough, but not what I want from a pint of Ale

Light citrus with strong floral hoPs, leading to a strong bitter flavour...quite good.

Draft pint, clear gold with citrus notes and clean bitterness. A reliable session ale in my book. Try i!

Cask @ Gallows Bird. Pours a hale yellow with a soapy, white head. Aroma is odd, like a freshly-opened pack of Leaf collectible ice hockey cards. Taste is mild, some biscuity malts, some slight tones of wheat.
