Cask. Golden. Clear but with some suspended particles. Lovely floral, perfumed scent, with oranges in it. A bit watery, very bitter. Lots of mandarins in the mouth with a dry hoppy end. An excellent summer beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden with a faint malty nose. It is not, I guess designed to be a hoppy beer but I found it to be much too thin and bland and when I discovered its ABV, I was quite staggered. Not for me.

Cask at the Moot Hall, Sneinton, Nottingham. Castle Rock do blond beers very well and this is certainly no exception. It’s got an appealing pale golden colour, fruity hop aroma and a full flavour which is well balanced between the sweet malts and floral hop.
