3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Nice golden colour, no gas, nice head. Slightly sweet, smooth, pure and with a hint of malt. Pleasany and refreshing. That said the dry and bitter aftertaste is a little too strong. Little in the way of aroma, neither good nor bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium golden colour. The aroma is malty with a little bit of pedio. Earthy character, definitely on the sweet side, with maybe some sulphury notes. Not a terribly dynamic beer.

Cask at The Britannia, Richmond, London. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thin fluffy white head and soft carbonation. The nose is bread, yeast, orange and grass. The taste is lemon, lime, pineapple, orange, hay, grass, honey, light spice and bread. It is a crisp, fruity, easy-drinking session ale.

Cask @ Weatherspoons in Penzance. Glassy gold with tight head. Slight pedio in the aroma. Mushrooms and earth as well. Tastes quite nice with nutty grain balancing a floral hop. Decent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 (cask ) all the loclas where salivating over this - i left this till I’d sampled the Christmas ales from the taps next to it. A beer that intertwines a sweet malt caramel quality , with grassy , spicy fruity hops . I can see why this would be popular. Has certain textures found in generic lager - while ovbiously being of better quality. But one of those golden ales with lagery tendancies.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, full pint, cellar cold at The Flying Horse, Gatwick. Slightly unclear golden-amber body. Tiny, white head reduced to a patchy surface. Malt-fruity smell. Some apricot mixed with grain in flavour. Too few hints of hop bitterness to the ending. Alright, but not in prime shape at the pub. In fact, rather vapid in the mouth (waiting for hours at the airport for a new plane, 08.08.2009).
