Re rated because as Blackhaddock says gets better as you go down the pint. Don?t know why. Gone from 2.9 to 3.3. Average. Nothing special. Seems quite strong but definitely nothing special. Enjoying it though

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at White Cross Beer festival 2014. Hazy yellow ale with a bubbly white head. Nose is light zesty lemon and a touch of vinegar. Taste is surprisingly malty, with some damp "farty" tastes. Not as unpleasant as it sounds, and it drinks well with a decent robust malty biscuit finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Shrewsbury Hotel, Shrewsbury, a Wetherspoons place: on 27th Jan 2014.
Light golden body with white foam for a head.
I got hops, spruce and herbal notes in both the aroma and taste, the finish being dry and bittering: the beer grew on me as I supped it. I thought it boring and very average until half way down the pint, it then became more interesting and tastier somehow.
Hides the alcohol nicely and not a bad brew at all.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy pale yellow pour, small white head. Light aromas of cereal and lemon, little else. Taste similarly thin, with soapy holdings all over the place. Not a right lot else going on.
