3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from De Wildeman, Amsterdam. British real ales don’t usually succeed as bottled beers, but this is an exception. Light bodied beer with wonderful bittering hops, very citrusy, grapefruit almost. A great success except for the lable, which to me looks cheap and tacky. I’ve yet to have a beer from this brewery that I didn’t rave about to anyone standing nearby.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Rook & Gaskill, York, October 2006. Pale gold colour with a persistent white head. Grassy, herbaceous aroma, with flowery touches. Gentle citrus and dry malt in the flavour. Smooth and clean, with a light mouthfeel but didn’t seem too vibrant. Perhaps a bit tired or near the end of the barrel?
