3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s a blonde thing. They are often like a Monet in that they are alsways good from afar. A long lasting session of head is always good thing. The aromas were intoxicating, in a you know you are going to get some drunk kind of bready, light and fluffy and a little yeasty (ok in a sexual themed rating that one doesn’t go over as well, but it was a part of the aroma).She is a little quiet (flavors muted) which is good considering the amount of people around who could see, but that quietness was really more of a velvety touch on the tounge. Its taste was ehavenly with just the right level of aggressive moves (bite at the end) and carbination like (for a cask ale) and this soft delicate tender moment in my mouth. All in all I’d do it again and would even recommend to friends.

@ Bunch O’Grapes, Cardiff. Hazy blonde. Slightly fruity aroma (berry) with fresh, breezy malt character. Soft and fruity, almost like a witbier. Interesting.

Cask, The City Arms (JDW), Earlsdon, Coventry. Orange gold, tenacious white collar. Pleasant sherbety, orange skin aroma with wood and green herbs. Juicy orange hop, dustings of earth, parsley, pepper..solid creamy malt base. Unfussy, a bit watery, but very decent. Could see a few of these off.

Cask, JD Wetherspoons with Jan. A pale ale which looks like a wiessbier. Very cloudy. Good lacing. Honey; grainy, some moderate grapefruit, a bit dusty in the hop department, sessionable, blande and easy to drink. Dry lemony finish.

Cask conditioned handpump Crosse Keys London. An orange blonde headless beer Decent citrus notes throughout. Mandarins and oranges to the fore. The hops appear subtle at first but do have a strong presence later which is really nice. A tasty beer.
