3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the pencilandspoon Beer Swap project.
I was slightly concerned with the pale lagerish smell as I uncapped it, however, once in the glass all was well. Pours a clear, pale gold with a fluffy, lasting white head. Nose of sweetish malts, orangey/grapefruit citric hops, candied fruits, wheat/hay and berry notes that emerge as it warms. Taste is again sweet pale malts and juicy, fruity citric hops, has a medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and ends dry and bitter with a little wheat in the finish. Itís not a bad beer by any means but for me the flavor falls just short of the promise from the aroma, if they could match that it would go from good to great.

Cask at the Clachan, London, served in a glass tankard. Hazy yellow, still, small vague attempt at a head. Nothing in the aroma. Body is medium, smooth, no real carbonation. Taste is thin and watery, suggestions of citrus (like over-diluted squash), background floral, soft bitterness builds over time. Pretty plain.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Duck in the Pond (Ember Inns), Harrow. Pale gold with a thin white head. Sweet lemon and melon are nice upfront but fade quickly and leave little in the aftertaste. Slightly dry finish but needs to be a lot crisper and with a few more hops- what?s there is pleasant enough but there?s not enough of it.

Very light haze on this paleish gold beer. Bubbly white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light clean malts, light floralness. Very light citrus. A mild floral sweetness runs throughout. Crisp finish. Itís all very light and fluffy, but it works! Refreshing,
