Named after the famous Jaguar sports car, XK120 is a classic blonde ale, easy drinking with a wonderful hoppy aroma and pleasing finish.

Cask Handpump at Bar Fringe, Manchester 19/01/2011 Fruit and malt aromas. White head. Amber coloured slightly hazy in appearance and fruity passion fruit flavour with a hint of dryness in a bitter malt finish.

Cask (Red Bull, Cambridge)
6 Simple malty aroma, clearly made from what beer’s made from.
3 Rich amber, healthy hight head.
6 Again, a simple malty body, clearly a well-made but unrevolutionary bitter.
13 Was a little dull the first day I had it, but was delicious the second day, so credited it a couple more points.

Cask Conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A predominantly malty beer with a bit of husky cereal in the nose. This was perhaps starting to shallow as there really was little by way of depth of flavour. But then again....

Cask at Rose & Woodbine, Coventry, England on 28th January 2011. Hazy amber with a part-lacing off-white foam head. Aroma is yeasty and a little citric. Cookie malts and sweet fruits in-mouth, and a citric lemon hop zest. I found the finish to be bittersweet, developing down the pint glass into a satisfying wholemouth bitterness. Zingy mouthfeel. Pleasant.

From cask at Bree Louise. Pours clear and golden orange with no head. Roasted, breadish and malty aroma. Flavour is the same, slight fruity and rather breadish. Bitter and fruity finish.
