2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
7th August 2009
GBBF. Cask. Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Well balanced malt and hop. Inoffensive but boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in August 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber with a thin white head. Dusty lemon hop with hints of lemon grass in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives juicy fruit notes of kiwi, lychees, gooseberry and pink grapefruit. Sweetness never lingers as hop resins come in with a strong metallic tang in the astringent aftertaste. Finish is quite dry and pithy with citric peel evident. An ok session bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber to gold with white head. Cereal type malt flavour, mid depth with a grainy dryness, then a leaf litter, fungal type hop note. The beer was quite flat unfortunately, it seemed somewhat old and tired.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. Mid amber colour. Decent earthy hops. Dry, slightly dusty malts. Good balance. Firm mouthfeel with a slightly flinty feel. Nothing particularly spectacular but very likeable and satisfying.

@ JDW Omni. Bright amber. The aroma is lightly toasty and somewhat biscuity. Sweet caramel with some hard candy notes and fruity accents. Complex character - same same but quite different. Some late chalkiness lends textural balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Playfair. Bright orange with stable head. Aroma is peppery hops. Deliciously fresh and nutty. Soft palate. Earthy with some mushroom and soy nut. Lovely flavors in a golden ale with wet flowers and some minerals throughout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. "Pours out in a hazy pale amber colour with a small frothy white head. Hoppy aroma of wet grass and lemon-zest. Medium to light-bodied with crisp hoppy notes of red grapefruit, lemon-zest, gooseberries and grass. Long crisp and really bitter finish of red grapefruit, lemon-zest, kiwi and grass with sweetish undertones of nectarines. Yeah, a hop-bomb that you can drink a lot of and not being totally sloshed.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at O.T.
Off white lasting foam (untill the beer is finnished). Light brown-cupper color. Malty aroma from pale not chrystal malts. Weak piny hop aroma. Big hop taste with a firm pale maltiness. Big bitterness for such a low alcohol beer. This is, if you like hoppy english ales, a splendid ale that could bee consumed in large amounts. Small residual sweetness as the beer gets a litle warmer.
