2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask at Captain Corvus, 20160903) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, earth and butter. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, earth, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A poor pale ale. Bad cask?

Clear pale golden with a decent sized white cap.
Nose is pale malts, grass, light citrus - pretty thin.
Taste comprises pale malt, lemon, citrus, light summer fruit, vegetal notes.

On draught. Golden orange with a short lived head. Tastes smooth, with a hint of bitterness and slightly sharp finish, a bit woody. Very light fruity aroma. Quite reasonable and could have it again.
