3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull at Knights Templar, JDW, Holborn. Pale gold, thin lasting white head. Slightly thin and ascetic, golden bitter. I was hoping this would be best of the lot and it isn’t. Yes, it has wheat, yes it has some harsh citrus hops. Good citrus beer, along the Harviestoun lines but lacks intensity and is a sub Oakham White Dwarf.

A Mes rate:
Cask at the Gatehouse. Golden blonde with lots of lace. Citric and floral aroma. Plenty of hoppy character in the mouth with a lovely creamy texture. Slight lick of malt for some balance. Lovely dusty bitter finish. A pleasant surprise.
