A Mes rate: Cask in a bar in Cambridge. When in Rome... Slight orange in the aroma. Average appearance but with lots of lace. Initially malty with a lengthy citric hop finish. Standard fayre but ok.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Wenlock Arms, London 22 Apr 2006) Golden amber colour. Nose is fruity and hoppy with hints of orange and mandarin. Taste is fruity (citrus), starts sweet but ends in a drier rather hoppy finish. Refreshing and easy to drink, but somewhat on the thin side.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Cambridge Blue in Cambridge.
Another very light orange bitters; this one has a mild sour-grass aroma, barely-apparent malts, and a very thin mothfeel. The highlight is the finish, long and dry and without anyo fthe metalic or other off-flavors that haunt many similar brews.

A mid orange, amber colour with a weak head. The nose is initially hoppy, with a touch of citrus fruit, and a slightly floral finish. The taste is light and hoppy, the citrus element is apparent again. The aftertaste is dry, and has the slightly hoppy, floral hint again. (Bottle - Tesco).

Bottle. Very pale beer with a light head, the aroma is light, fruity and slightly citric and the flavour is watery, quite weak with a fruity, bitter and winey finish. Overall disappointing.

Very smooth and easy-drinking bitter. I want more taste than this, and had expecter more from a beer with all these prices and medals!
