Cask at Carters Tap. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch, oat biscuits. Taste is pretty grim, astringent, sweet, buttery. Thin finish. Hard to like.

Pale and quite pleasantly hoppy without actually having much aroma. Generally quite drinkable but rather fails in what it is intended to do. Very much an accountants homage to an American pale ale.

Mildly hoppy aroma. Quite fruity but lovely. Dark honey appearance. Quite sweet and hoppy, fruity and quite Morrish.

Nothing special. Very light, drinkable. It is not bitter, if not that little aftertaste, I would say that it is boring drink.

Cask at The Three Frogs (GK), Wokingham on 9 March 2013. Poured a clear dark golden colour, with a rocky white head. Aroma was typical GK; sweet malts, GK yeast and some faint hops. Flavours of caramel, flat malts and some grassy hop. Finish was much the same. Not awful, but a sad approximation of much better beers.

An extremely pleasant experience which I was not expecting. In these days of über-hopped American IPAs, a refreshing lightly hopped IPA, full of flavour and extremely sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the Raeburn Hotel.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - grassy/herby with a bran biscuit background.
Taste - citrus and grassiness. Again there is a biscuit thing going on behind it.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a light creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - a decent pint alright, though not sure it makes me think American Pale Ale. Works well as an English pale ale though.
