3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. At The Rake, Borough Market. Admittedly, this was very near the bottom of the cask - it went off shortly after my pint. Cloudy orange pour with a very large fluffy off-white head. Pungent spicy/grassy aroma - lemon grass, to be exact - unexpected and very appealing; the dreg can be loverly. The taste ... erm ... not so much; started soapy, the waves of dry grass/floral bitterness, spicy, dry and overpowering. Incredibly thick mouthfeel for a Golden (again, bottom of the cask), not much carbonation, extremely spicy and dry - yeast for days, this really stayed on my tongue. Quite a ride - I loved it, frankly.

Cask at the White Hart in Holburn.
Yellow color with a foamy head.
Nose of bread and citrus
Taste is clean and notes of toast anf grain. A floral hop bite keeps it from being bland.
Not bad but not special or as interesting as the name would imply

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the SixBells, Cambridge. Mid- to dark gold, with a small pool of loose white head. Decent amount of lacing. Grapefruit, grass, a bit of butterscotch. Nicely bitter taste, not much to it but pleasant enough. Full body for the ABV. Massive bitter finish and long aftertaste, with some woody astringency right at the end. Simple and not one to remember but decent enough.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours golden with a white foamy head. Aroma is a little non existent. A very smooth beer but there’s next to no taste, a little bit of bitterness I guess.

tap - great English bitter. Still a style I won’t go crazy about but the lightl bread notes and floral and earthy hops play off each other well. Sessionably good.
