Sampled on draught at The Scarsdale Tavern, Kensington. A light gold colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts. The taste is pleasantly malty with hints of honey. Light and very easy to drink, with light bitterness. More taste than a lager, but with some of the same qualities. Good summer drinking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Londonís Pride, Heathrow T2. It pours clear golden with a tiny white head. The nose is bready, grainy, cereal, dull caramel sweetness and honey. The taste is soft, sweetish grain, white bread, light honeyed cereal, grass and a touch of spice with a short, dryish finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Simple and not a lot to it. Sessionable, but pretty boring.
