2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Melton Mowbray, Holborn, London. These golden summer ales seem to come in three styles. Firstly, thereís the ones with the aromatic, fruity ones using lots of US hops. Then thereís the grassy ones with lots of German hops. And then thereís the ones like this, which seem almost like a normal bitter, except lighter in colour. Thereís not a lot of aroma and not a lot of hops. Not a lot of anything really. Dry and a little citric. Perfectly drinkable but not very interesting. I see that others have rated this quite highly so perhaps the cask was a little tired. Iíll give it another go.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Euston Flyer, London. It's a blonde beer, guess what colour it is? Pale golden beer, very slight grassy aroma. Taste is malty biscuit flavour with slight grassy hoppiness and very slight bitter to finish. Nowt wrong wi it but just like every other blonde beer, not sure why it needs to be chilled though. Perhaps to attract the lager drinkers which is why new 'blonde' beer exist after all.

Dec 2012 - draught London Fleet St. May well have had it before. Very íBritishí flavoured beer in my books. Mild, light body with a bitter (but not astringent) finish. Certainly nice, but nothing to rave about.
