2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Antelope, Rhydymwyn. Pours a very slightly hazy amber colour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and bready. Taste is grassy dry hops with a citrussy bounce. Slight tickle of carbonation but nothing that takes away from the beer itself. Almost no lacing and medium heavy mouthful. Tasty but very middle of the road.

Cask. Copper ale with a good cream head. Good hoppy head with mango and lemons. Sweet malty in the taste with light lemon, orange and a aspartame type aftertaste. It’s ok, but nothing overly special.
