[Cask at The Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe] Gold with a thin white head. Lots of lemon up front which gradually fades to leave a rather heavy bitterness. An average and rather one-dimensional golden ale.

Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Plae amber with a tight cream head; citrus aroma; smooth and creamy in the mouth, with a pronounced sharp grapefruit taste; and a long, dry, and fruity finish. Rather good.

JDW Last Post. At last, hops in a Spoons Fest Ale. Was beginning to despair (apart from Feral IPA) All that need be said of this is that it is as close to Jarl I have tasted from another brewer. Top stuff as anything with Citra & Simcoe usually is. Harviestoun back on form.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Cask at Knights Templar Spoons. Clear pale gold thin white head. Some butter on aroma but then good cutrus hips on finish. Condition could be better. Lack of diacetyl would be advantage. Ok 3.3/5 re rate county hotel ashford no diacetyl cleaner hoppy decent

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Willow Walk, London. It pours clear light yellow, with a small white head. The nose is faint citrus, light spice, straw, light sweetness and soft fruit. The taste is upfront citrus, pithy lemon, grapefruit, assertive bitterness, straw, earth, light spice and soap, with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Rather tasty actually.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Willow Walk. The pour’s deep gold with a small, creamy white head. The nose is bright red berries, some honey, mild dry grass. The taste is tangy grapefruit meat, soft citrus fruit salad. Mildly herbal, grassy hop finish. Pleasantly creamy mouthfeel. Light, easy to drink stuff. Overall, a very solid effort.
