On tap on the Saturday of the Cheltenham National Cheese Festival. Poured a light golden colour with a slim white head. Clean and refreshing and at such a reasonably weak strength this could be quite gluggable, but I’m not sure that it would have enough to keep me enticed. It was more flavoursome than many of rivals in this sector but it lacked a real depth of flavour though as Doppelganger states such coldness can hide some of the hoppier characteristics which are definately there but just hidden somewhat. Absolutely fine.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 (Rating update: cask at The Jam Factory, tail end of the Oxford RB Crawl with Traci and Silk. Noticing hop aroma more on this than in previous samplings, though as Silk says, not sure I get Cascade. A worthy example of high flavor to abv ratio session beer.)Tap at the cheese festival in Cheltenham. Light gold with a nice dense cap. Light, earthy, a bit of angelfood cake aroma. Clean white bread malt, earthy hops. This was a really nice little lager. Very clean and unassuming, but with some surprising nice touches. A little warmer serving temp would let the hops show off a little more. (prev rating 3.5)
