UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Re-rating - same rating values on all markers 22nd March 2013. Cask at the Basketmakers Arms, Brighton. Crystal clear amber with thin white lacing head. Pleasant malty slightly cheesy aroma. Sweetish fruits and malts in-mouth, with a slight salty touch. Late citrus leading to tangy finish, on lightly saline mouthfeel. Cask at the White Horse, Hertford on 3 September 2010. Clear amber with offwihte film of foam giving partial lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy and the main kick contains grassy hop and a briefly soapy taste, all rounded off by sweetish caramel malt notes. Bittersweet finish, citric and grassy but sweetness lingers on front of mouth; bitterness increases on back of mouth. Light, watery, cooling texture. Rather enjoyable.
