3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Crate Brewery, Hackney Wick, London. Hazy gold with slight head. Quite a reasonably bitter beer with a hoppy grapefruit and apricot type flavour. Nice depth and the basis of a really good beer, you would imagine that the Brewpub would keep it a little better though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear, red-gold with a strong, frothy white head. Nose holds sweet, bready malts, some ripe fruits, berries, perhaps a nip of cheese. Medium sweet flavor with a prominent malt foundation, upon which sit a smattering of leafy hops, ripe orange and mango, perhaps some strawberry, hints of pine, definitely some berries. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet and lightly sticky to finish, with a surprisingly bitte edge that borders on abrasive, with more bready, slightly cerealy malts, some tangy prunes, toasted grass. It’s OK and pretty interesting.

Cask at Craft Beer Co - Clerkenwell on 19th October 2012. Copper-amber with off-white foam. Hoppy aroma with cheesy yeasts. Richly hoppy liquid with herby hoppiness, fine grapefruits and citric zest. Curious apple note late, but this did not kill the beer. Fruity, zesty finish and a zingy mouthfeel.

Cask at St Albans beer festival 2012. An amber coloured pour with a small white head on top. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, fruity, butterscotch. Something rather strange about this one, it did not go down well, in fact I poured half of it away.
