3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Holly Bush NW3. Slightly coppery golden colour, thin head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Light clean palate, a hoppy bitterness in the finish. Curious flavour, a nice bit of crunch, some earth and a hint of fruit. Not the most fruity Nelson Sauvin I’ve ever tried. A pleasant and slightly unusual take on an English spring bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask at Pikkulintu, 20130411) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had honey and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, honey, sweetness, grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. The cask hadn’t reached its prime yet. A decent golden ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Given that I like Fuller’s and I like golden ales, this was pretty disappointing. Fine and perfectly drinkable, but really not the sort of character you’d expect from the style. Maybe just poorly kept or something but I found this one really boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Bull Inn, Sonning, Berkshire (lovely old atmospheric Inn in a beautiful English setting). A golden/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top.Vague fruity, floral, hoppy aroma. Tastes similar, fruity, hoppy, floral, slightly dry. I struggled to finish this pint which was served in a Fullers Inn so it should have been in decent condition but it was certainly lacking.
