Cask conditioned handpump Three Cocks Kettering 21/08/13. An orange coloured beer with a white bubbly head and lace. A pretty good citrussy beer with nice fruits in nose and good bittering hops in the mouth with a good body. A lot of character and good flavours. Liked it.

Had on cask at Far from the maddening crowd in Oxford. Fairly hoppy ( by British standards) golden colored ale. Fruity notes. A drinkable beer and nice to finally taste some hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great Western, Wolverhampton.
Hand-pulled half-pint during the RB Black Country Bus Tour on 6 Jul 2013.
Good golden look to the body: medium head that held.
Floral to fruity nose with lightly baked malts giving an interesting though fairly weak aroma blend.
The taste followed the smells, but stronger, pleasant but no world beater. Semi-sweet feel with a mild bitter finish.
