ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Cask via handpump at the Pembury Tavern during the festival, on 16th July 2009. Gold in colour with white head that quickly flattens. Initial aromas of fresh-baked biscuit in the nose then fairly hoppy with grassy and cheesy notes in main kick. Texture is on the flat side. A dry finish with grass and grapefruit.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 A Mes rate: cask at the Pembury Tavern.
Mid gold with a decent bright white head and in pretty decent condition. At the Pembury??? I kid you not. Aroma of hops, really good hops. Sadly theyíre killed by an oily fatty note. The flavour is identical. Really good hops but there is a clear oily residue that sticks around and just wonít bugger off. Good citric bitterness in the finish brings it back on track thankfully. Erm, yeah, thatís it.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2009
Cask handpull, The Red Lion, Alnmouth, Northumberland. Over-chilled orange gold with a snowy collar. Indistinct buttery orange escaping. Smooth and orange-accented with reasonable husky back up, choc hints, solid bitterness. Disapointing and not very IPA-like, but decent enough.
