4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask gravity at Reading BF 06. Golden beer with bubbly white head. Flowery, grassy hop which belies the intensity in the mouth. Flowery/floral hop, underpinned by biscuit malt with intense hop finish. Really tingles the tongue. Good supping beer. So good I had to get another half.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at Peterborough BF ’06. Gold with a white head. Aroma of hops followed by a grapey, citrus taste that made this one of the festival highlights for me. Late surge of bitterness completes an excellent package.

Bright bottled at Peterborough Festival, drunk 10 days later. Wow! Hop explosion! Succulent beer. Aroma is fresh as though diving into a loaded hop back. Freshness is the key to the divine nature of this beast. It has the sweetness of the malt, and the crispness, and the balance, and the hop bite - it has all these things arranged in such a tempting, delicate, fresh.... O hell - it’s so clearly a great beer!

A bright, golden yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A light citrus fruit nose with hops and lemon, with a tiny hint of malt. The taste is dry and bitter, lemon and hop flavours again, then a smooth biscuity malt taste to finish. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Pale golden colour, frothy white head. Big juicy hop aroma. Big and clean and something that I could easily recommend to my American cousins without apprehension. Good length on the palate. Complex fruity, hoppy flavour.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2005 RE-RATE: hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Much better aroma than before and that makes a big difference. Good dryness, good lnegth and firmness. This is a fine Blonde - confirmed. GBBF, London. Appalling aroma - rubber, stale sweat and canals (NB). Taste however, is very good - delicious lemon and floral, notes, and extremely crisp. Superb balance. [9/8/04 - 3.3].

Cask at the Queens Head Chelmsford.
Pale with thin white head, crystal clear.
Subtle citrus winegum flavours, alcoholic. Not that bitter. The name is misleading not like an Essex girl.
