2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pump clip said Elland Blonde in The Station, Oakengates Shropshire on 2nd Jan 2016, so I had a half for the tick: this was the third and final citrus flavoured golden brew I had in this pub on this occasion. The lemon aroma and taste were subdued or subtle depending on your stance, the malts trying to overpower the citrus hop base nose and flavour. The best of the three I had.

Cask at JDW. As ’Elland White Hart’. Clear dark golden shade. Rings of white head. Notes of candied fruits and straw. Moderately bitter taste with some dryness. A bit heavy for 4% so not the most drinkable but some nice flavours within.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow with a small head. It’s pretty much what it says on the pump clip, it’s a fine bitter with a high bitterness and lots of malty-hop character.
