Zzt bottle. Typical UK golden ale, more prominent in malt than hop flavours. Hint of butter. Very refreshing aftertaste. Seems like a good session beer

Cask at the William Webb Ellis (JDW), Twickenham - 14/04/12.

Citrus and floral hops on the nose allied to malt.
Hoppy taste, zesty citrus, medium bodied, crisp finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hand-pulled pint in ‘The 7 Star’: Carey St London, on 28th April 2012.
Struggled to enjoy this to be honest; it looked OK, an orange hue to the light brown body with a fairly good head of off-white bubbles perched on top.
The nose was flowery and fruity with lightly baked bread yeast in the mix.
The taste was also on the flowery/fruity side with a mini-hop bitterness towards the end of each sip.
Medium bodied but lacking something: too floral for my taste buds.

Cask @ Akkurat. Dried apricots... sort of dark fruitiness... flour... fresh grape in the aftertaste... a small touch of tigerbalsam... Refreshing and quite complex.

Euston Tap. Light haze on this gold beer. Tidy white head. Palate is smooth and dry with a little fine carbonation. Light crisp malts supports reasonable hop. A little repressed orange - grapefruit citrus. Minerals. Finishes dry. Nicely balanced.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull, The Salmon, Leicester, 23/05/12. Orange-gold heaped with a fat stable head. Muted, orange-hinting aroma. Wow; pretty intense, deeply stewed, earthy hop character with woodland notes I’m struggling to describe..hawthorn? Softening creaminess, some chalk and Soothers not detracting from the pungently bitter finish. G+T linger. Hopped-up, slightly wonderful, strangely English stuff considering the name.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at the Caley Sample Room, Edinburgh] Light copper coloured beer, thick puffy white head. Sweet, thick passion fruit aroma. Good grassy hop bitterness on the taste initially – leading into more floral, mango flavours. Nice bitter finish on the end. Slips from one taste to the other and back without you really noticing, it has a fantastic balance. Really very nice, even viewed without my pro-Dark Star bias
