Cask at CBC. Light gold with thin white froth. Mandarin and mango on the nose, some pale sweet biscuity malt too. Taste is crisp pale malt, with sweet mandarin and mango. Touch of lime pithiness. Light, crisp and refreshing - spot on for a session ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the CBC. On cask. Appearance: Golden yellow, small snow white head. Aroma: Beautifully hoppy nose with a good amount of fruit and malt. Flavour: Hoppy at first making way to a nice fruity burst with grassy undertones, lovely maltiness too with a long softly bitter finish. Quite lovely. Quite sessionable. A great example of how flavourful a beer can be without being huge on alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Pale gold pour, and a soft floral nose. Certainly midway between a nice herbal blond and a session pale. After all the cask brews I’d had, the mouthfeel on this one certainly seemed riotous. But it was zesty and brought out a bit more of the flavors, some soft citrus and bittering notes. Solid session brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From cask @Craft Beer Co, London. A cap of creamy blond head, over a hazed orangey golden body. Fresh and mild hop aroma, reminiscent of ripe oranges, flowers and freshly cut grass. Also a whiff of toasted and light doughy malts. Taste is complex and balanced for such a light beer. Pleasant hop profile, gentle and fruity. Base of fairly dry and crisp pale malt. Soft mouthfeel. Super drinkability. The ultimate all-nighter?
