3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand pull. Beer to test my objectivity since I will never be a lager drinker. I have 3 sons to do that for me, and one does. But if the pungent smell of lemon rind and grapefruit sets your pulse racing this is for you. It’s pale gold with a thin top that laces nicely - it might even rival a Sauvignon blanc with fish. But this is beer.and once the drinking starts, the hops have a simple bitter message. So once the tongue has curled like a squeezed lemon on a sole fillet, there’s not a lot to say. One for the summers of one’s youth.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at the Spaniards NW3. Pale amber colour, flat, not much head, slightly cloudy. Not in great condition to be honest, ever so slightly sour hint. Basically like drinking bitter back in the bad old days. Even allowing for that, there didn’t seem to be a lot going on. I may retry if there’s nothing else on the bar...

Cask @ the Sun in Camberwell, large sample, served in a pint. Almost clear golden color, short head. Aroma of citrussy hop, slight grapefruit, bit grainy malt. Soft bitter taste, slight fruity sourness coming through of the citrussy hop, just slight malty sweetness. Easy drinker, refreshing. Decent stuff.
