Cask at the Southampton Arms on 4th May 2011. Gold with thin white head and partial lace. Mildly hoppy and fruity; berry fruits and citric hoppiness, little metalic note and biscuit malts. Bittersweet rounded finish lingering with upper-mouth bitterness noticeable. Light mouthfeel.

Cask. O’ Donoghues. Wakefield. UK. Given its strength, it’s never going to blow your socks off, complexity wise. However, as a refreshing session glugger it’ll do very nicely. Decent varietal characteristics, that punch above their weight.

Very creditable session bitter with Cascade quite evident.
Like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - Lite.

Draft at the brewpub. Sharp, yeasty nose with some elderflower. Sits well in the glass - pale gold with a firm head. Sharpish finish with a well-hopped, dry, thirst-quenching quality. The mouthfeel on this and its stablemate Sweet Tenacity is fantastic - like smooth velvet with perfect carbonation (not that velvet is carbonated but you know what I mean.)
