Pleasant if not overly exciting, mild hints of honey make this ale more enjoyable on a warm summers day

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tones of eraser, a bit too conspicuous aftertaste that demands a bit more than it is worth. Endurant hops which are pretty good, but too dominant for the beer to become a classic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Hilden Fest 2012 - 25/08/12.
Clear copper with a large white head.
Basic nose of malt, grain and fruit.
Taste is similar nothing really stands out a bitter fruity finish ensues.
Not memorable but drinkable!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, dull gold with a small, white foam head. Toasty malt aroma with hints of spicy caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor, nutty, with some toast and faint gingerbread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with some dirt and leaves providing bitterness, and light caramel sweetness. Pretty average stuff overall.

GBBF. Cask. Clear amber beer. Semi dry palate. Fruity but a little too much apple. Finishes semi dry with more apple. A bit young mayhap?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats in (JDW) April 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Clear note of runny honey in the short sweet aroma. Thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a poor digestive biscuit base with sweet caramel present. Dusty hop resins provide a slightly bitter aftertaste but this fades fast tthough. Finish is malty and quite dry with oak cask notes in the palate. An ok session bitter but still below average though.
