Clear pale yellow pour mounted by a small white film. Soft bready and grassy nose that stays far from any glimpse at complexity. Nice healthy and creamy mouthfeel, but the flavours needs an uplifting to pretend to greatness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at White Cliffs Beer Festival, February 2006. Pale straw/gold colour. Soft, herbaceous and grassy. The aroma is stronger than the flavour. Light mouthfeel, slightly lacking in grip. If its going for a golden ale style, it doesn’t really have enough aromatic character. If its going for a bitter style, it doesn’t really have enough bitterness. That’s not to say I disliked it, it just seemed a bit undecided about what it was trying to achieve.
