Golden colour, floral and honeyish aroma. Fruity and a little bit spicy in the palate. Can taste alcohol, which I don’t normally appreciate in a standard cask ale.

Cask. The pour’s deep gold with a small creamy head. The nose is floral hop, some buttered bread. Apples. Quite malty. The taste is more buttery bread, some sweet fruits and syrup. Light floral hop finish. Overall, perfectly reasonable. A nice, hoppy bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light gold, thin tight head; this one begins by lulling you with some luscious soft fruitiness and sweetish malt, before hitting you with an increasingly aggressive bitterness which goes on to dominate the finish; full mouthfeel; it’s good, if a shade too feisty for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Flowerpots in Cheriton. Pale amber with a ring of white head; the aroma is grainy with some honey; a rich, syrupy, texture, full bodied and not too sweet, with some resinous hops that kick in straightaway and build towards the finish, leaving a lingering dry spiciness.
