2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at a wetherspoons. Hazed gold with slight head. This started off with an odd perfumed note, a mix between butterscotch and boiled sweets. A little on the tart side, flowery, drinkable although not greatly enjoyable.

Hand pulled at the Figure of Eight, Birmingham. A bit of lemon barley, cardboard and some spring water. Fairly dry and a bit refreshing, but I won’t be rushing back. Felt a bit weird in the mouth. Strange.

[Cask at Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Rich gold with a moderate white head and a slight fizz. A little lemon (although not as dominant as the name implies it should be), some sweetcorn and a clean if rather cardboardy bitterness. OK refresher, if a little thin.
