Cask (Southampton Arms, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Fruity aroma. Typical bitter appearance, rich orange, small head. Simple malty body, but with some well balanced hops poking up occasionally to. Soft palate, carbonation low. Fairly dull bitter, but certainly passable.

wheresthepath (1469) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2011
[500ml bottle from The Bottleneck, Broadstairs, that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Golden-amber, slight white head, slight fizz. Bitter, herby, resinous, a few flowers, but just didn’t work for me I’m afraid.

Cloudy light amber colour with tiny white head. Weak malty aroma with some mild hoppiness. Some caramel malt and mild fruity hoppiness in flavour. Quite unsurprising brew.

Cask. Clear golden yellow with very short dishwater bubbly head. Bitter and a bit chemical aroma with citrus and peach. Weedy hops. Tropical fruity (oranges, peach, a bit of mango seed) taste with a nasty chemical perfumy note. Grassy hops. The aftettaste is bitter and quite nasty with a soapy touch.

Pours hazy pale yellow with a lovely, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, some citric hops, sweet malts, light apple. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, good malty sweetness, fair dryness. Citric, piney and light spicy in the hops profile. Lingering mild bitterness. Fine drink.
