3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The James Street Tavern, Oxford St. Clements. Gold to amber with white head. Fruity, light beer, there is a sharp apricot hint to this, quite flowery too in character. Some sweetness in the close tending towards saccharin. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, gravity from Red Lion, Islip, Oxon, Sunday 22nd July 2012 One of just 4-5 beers left at this small pub based beer festival, though I have to say I was surprised to note that of all of the beers remaining that a brand new local brewery from just 1-2 miles along the road is one of those. Pours crystal clear gold, slim white head, dry and with a nice bitterness. This is the third day of this small beer festival so probably not quite at its best but looks wise it is cracking However I do find it a little bit thin and a tiny bit warm but for the abv and for a new beer not bad.
