3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber with a thin creamy white head. Slightly sweet malty note hinting of soft caramel in the short fading aroma. Thin mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with sweet flavours of toffee and satsuma fruit. Very little hop resins detected but there is a vague bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is malty with notes of barley sugar and satsuma pith fully present in the mouth. This beer reminded me so much of Otter Ale in taste. An ok session bitter.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 8 September 2013. Poured a hazy golden colour with a thin, dishwatery white head. Aroma of toffee, melon and some floral hops. Grassy initial flavour with some peach and pine. Palate is very sugary with some light bitter hops. Uninspired and not very well kept.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Cask conditioned gravity dispense Eastgate Northampton 17/09/13. An orange gold coloured beer with white bubbles for a head. Fruity with oranges and some sweet toffee. Suggestions of diacetyl at first but I do think itís just the sweetness here. Quite a lot of flavour which may not totally work but itís nice enough. Score 3.3
Subsequent rating scored 3.0. Average becomes 3.2
