2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity cask at the Riser festival in Berko. Pours a clear bright light golden yellow with an off-white head. The smell is toasted malt, citrus, a hint of grainy sweet malt. The taste is toasted grain, bitter to begin with and a grainy flavor predominating. Some citrus residing in th bitterness. Light+ in body with average carbonation....just OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handpull cask at the New Zealand Arms, Derby. Very light gold, some carbonation and a small white head. Light aroma of lemon peel and fresh grapefruit. It tastes fruity and bittersweet, very pleasant but the finish is noticeably short. It’s actually a lovely little light beer, even if there’s not a lot to it.

A summer ale. Floral notes with malted tones. Golden colour with thin lace. Taste sweet at first with citrus range. A session pale ale that will quench the thirst or at the very least slake it.
