4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at The Moon in the Square, Bournemouth. Now let me firstly say, this is a great ale! A clear medium amber pour with little head and no lace. A really fruity aroma leading to an amazing hop explosion! It had a wonderfully complex set of flavours with a surprisingly smooth edge and citrus notes. The bitterness sits on the palate for a good while longer too. A really special ale which I wish was more widely available.

On cask at Hawkshead Beer Hall, Staveley - Hazy amber body, thin white head. Floral hoppy aroma with grass and hints of tropical fruits. Very floral hop flavour as well, tropical fruits with hints of grassy and traces of pine. Pretty good!

Half pint at Wspoons. First sip is very very promising slightly sweet with depth. Slips into a long bitter finish which lingers a bit too long for me. Almost very nice...

There is an awful lot going on with this, from the citrus/orange/lemon/other aroma, through the lovely color, then a melody of flavours to a dryish finish. Not actually sure I’m enjoying it as it is a lot of work, perhaps the fuggles? Who knows I clearly don’t.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg in the Horseshoe NW3. Orangey amber colour. Served cold. Some fruity hop, sweetish malt. Actually a bit bland and disappointing, especially as I’ve really enjoyed hoppy Hawkshead beers before - don’t know whether it was the cold keg taking the edge off?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Clear pale amber. A few soap sud type bubbles. Sweet, caramel malt. Some orange. Some syrupy pineapple. Taste is heavy sweet. Palate is dull, thick, and lifeless. Finishes with some oily bitterness. Maybe this is a duff bottle. Not good.

Cask gravity at Twickenham beer festival 2014, light copper with a very thin haze, Seville orange citrus and currant leaf nose, syrupy texture leads to a dry-sweet, fruity toasted marmalade body and a dry-bitter finish. Reminiscent of a hopped up Märzen.
