Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Golden Lion, York. Malty toffee with nutty toast and balanced earthy hops. This was quite nice and suprisingly so for me as I often find the maltier ales get a bit much after a while.

Cognac color, nice and lasting head. The flavour has a nice bitterness all the way through and it has notes of fruit (melon), clover and flower. It’s a charming and uncomplicated ale, that reminds me of a more bitter version of Fursty Ferret.

Bottle. Amber color with small head. Aroma and taste of caramel, bread and apricot. Pleasant sweetness and medium bitter finish. Funny idea with the old crook, Greengrass from "Heartbeat" on the "frontpage" of this BA.

Bottle. Light amber and gold with an off-white foam. Aromas are sweet caramel with some sweet apricot. Flavours are sweet caramel with apricot jam and gentle but tasty hops. Pretty good. My claim to fame is that I once almost ran the actor on the label over. He crossed the road without looking. The old fool.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thought Daleside’s Ripon Jewel was outstanding. This is also pretty good. Bottle. Amber colour with a small head. Aroma of toast and marmalade malt. Slightly too much fizz, but a pleasant sweet maltiness in the taste gave way to a medium bitter finish.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy amber with a tiny, off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish aroma. The body is medium with plenty of malt and a caramelish sweetness. Discreet hoppiness in the finish. Smooth and quite pleasant drinking. 210406
