4th Aug 2016: cask in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire. Golden, very light/pale golden, white head. Fairly bland and uninteresting to be honest. Subtle nose and flavours, mild sweetness and a mini fruitiness, but not much of anything really.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge. Light gold, clear. A little bit of white head with considerable lacing. Some grapefruit, tropical fruit and hint of sulphur in the nose. Tastes of more than a bit of sulphur. Stale malt, sulphur, a hint of butter. Sweet and sulphury. I get used to it, and itís dead fresh and served at a cool temperature so itís drinkable. But not really my cup of tea.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grain, cereal, slight lemon, a hint of bready malt and subtle grassy hops. Taste is similar of grain, cereal, slight lemon and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A soft, malty and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Itís a boring, bland golden ale. Drinkable though.

Cask (Tram Depot, Cambridge) as "Tram Light" at 4.0%
Tons of honey in aroma. However, quite weak and watery. Very pale, almost no head. Soft palate, but watery. Pear drops in the retronasals too, according to Anna, itís closer to apple for me. 3.0 seems like an under-rate, as itís a perfectly drinkable bitter.

Draught (Tram Depot, Cambridge)
Very light. Thin head. Sweet malt, then black tea, them more malt aroma. Maybe some liver stuffing and gravy. Very sweet malty taste, but just a little watery. Caramel malt finish - tasty session, I guess.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask from The Duke of Wellington, Nevilleís Cross. £2.85/pint
Very weak, neutral aroma, hints of grass. Pleasing yellow-gold appearance with good white head after taking a long time to settle. Taste is okay, malt, bread, raw dough. Palate is very light with a disappointing lack of bitterness to the finish.
As a thirst-quenching summer beer it does the job but struggles to announce itself with anything more than mediocrity. Not one to actively seek out.
