2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask half-pint in St Aldates Tavern, Oxford on 18th Oct 2014 after an afternoon session across the road at the CAMRA Oxford beer festival. Pale yellow to golden body, with a weak white head. Malty yet citrus feel to the nose, the taste also a citrus and light malt blend. Not unpleasant but not a lot of flavour or things happening to excite the senses.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Chesterfield Alehouse - Pale yellow body, thin white head. Zesty citrus in the nose, lemons, limes, and slightly bitter in the taste. Other than that it doesn’t shine, and fades into a rather boring pale by the end.
