3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask in Ambleside at a restaurant cafe type of place called Stiles.
Appearance - golden orange with a nice head.
Nose - orange and barley.
Taste - more orange barley water.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - it’s a style that most of the top UK brewers have managed to capture in at least one of their beers. Nothing new but no need to change it.

Copper, good white head. Very little aroma to speak of. Slightly earthy, wood and cardboard, citrus, cereal and light honeyed sweetness. Moderately bitter. Smooth with low carbonation. Not bad but not that distinctive.

My Bottom Line:
Honeyed base malts share lightly toasted angles, as wooden hops delve into spicy bitterness for a smashing Golden Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam thrones atop the shiny copper-hued golden, lacing beautifully.
-Hops also produce some earthy characteristics.
-Light minerals are tasted.
-Mouthfeel is very comfortable and drinkability optimal.
-This cask is in superb shape.
On cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell.

Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Amber beer with a strongish head. The aroma is lightly fruity, and the flavour is bitter with hops and a lot of dryness. Overall a reasonable dry beer.
