2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden with light white head. Very sulphurous on nose...overburtonised I call it but perhaps a fermentation fault...almost stomache turning rotting eggs. Tastes pretty good at first, light tropical fruits well balanced but a whiff of egg at the finish. The only real disappointment of the festival and hopefully a one off fault from the usually unfaultable brewers

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 06/09/13. A light golden coloured beer with a whitish head. Citrus and grassy notes. Soapy flavours too. Nice enough hoppiness but it’s a bit safe for Fyne. Sessionable. Bit of shampoo, OK.

Cask at Thomson’s. Pours pale yellow with good white head. Lemon citrus aromas, and hay. Creamy texture, decent bitterness. Perhaps a touch thin, but a very refreshing pint.

August 30, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Southampton Arms. Clear gold, small drool of mottled white head. Aroma and taste are lovely light grain and strong grassy pungent bitterness. Average body, solid cask carbonation, quite a long grassy bitter finish and linger. Well made.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Thomsons Bar. Pours golden and has a well proportioned head. The nose has grass and meadowsweet. The taste has vegetal and lemon flavours.
The palate is medium bodied with a creamy long dry finish. Overall just about enough body to call it an ale, so yes, well brewed!
