3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ The Windsor Castle. Pours deep golden with a medium creamy white head. The nose is bright citrus, sugary lemon candy, grass, some honey and summery fruits. The taste is a burst of countryside fruity flavors. Some lemon, grapefruit, strawberry, rhubarb, white grape. There’s an assertive mild bitter hop presence. A bit of brash grassiness. Light dry finish. Very drinkable. It’s amazing that this beer’s only 3.5% Overall, great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served rather cold, I thought. Clear yellow once it does a cool cascade thing. Very cheery hops, flora aroma and moderate bitterness. Would satisfy US drinkers. Frothy palate. And all for 3.5%! Fabulous. (cask at the Forth Hotel, Newcastle).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Southwark Tavern London 17/07/12. A copper to gold coloured beer with no head. Citrus hoppiness and sweetness in the aroma. A decent body but there’s an odd cloyingness to it. The hops are good but it feels like the malts overcompensate for the lack of ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Cloisters. Pale golden amber, thick white creamy head. Light but decent resinous hop nose, slightly grassy, big grapefruit, gooseberry maybe. Nice juicy bready front, light citrus, grapefruit, nicely drying bitter linger. Soft carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Lovely, punches well above its weight.

Gift from SJ. A very mild brew with some grass, hop, fruti and lemon notes. Finishes dry. A bit thin, but ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at ACBF 2012. A light golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of yeast, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops, hay, and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Boring hops.

From the tap. Light gold. Tight long lasting head. Fresh grassy aroma. Bitterness up front and throughout the pint, but never harsh. Good summer pint.
