2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask from The Duke of Wellington, Neville’s 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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mar 2015 - Cask at the Railway Tavern, Richmond. Yellow, hazy, still, small scummy white head, pretty full lacing. Aroma is gluey, musty. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is light sponge cake malt, soft lemon, watery, a bit thin and watery, reminds me of ’Vitamin Water’. Quite pleasant overall, but the flavour is never going to blow anyone’s mind.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 2 May 2012. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma was really light, but what there was wasn’t good; farts, sulphur and flat malt. Boiled sweets in the flavour, with bread and skunked hops. Finish was wet grass, copper and apples. One bad pint.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on cask at King William IV (the Brodies pub, where all their own beers were gone this Saturday evening). Slightly hazy, pale golden body. Diminishing white head. Smell of dried fruits and pale malts. Taste of lemon and sweet apples promoting a cider-like impression. Mid-sweet ending. Ok, far from great (Leyton, London 27.09.2014).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Fine one with the aromas and tastes I like: Some citrus fruits with aromatic hops, crispy and easy drinkability finishing off less bitter than some others like. Fine one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On cask at The Pullman in Folkestone. Pours out in a hazy yellow-golden colour with low ehad and medium to flat body. Aroma of hay and hops with some floral hints. Taste of fresh hops, bread, wheat, straw, mild citrus fruits and pine. Thin finish. Refreshing and drinkable, yet lacks some body and deepness.
