Cask. Simple pale brown pour with alright head. Rather plain malt aroma, hints of citrusy fruit. Mild finish. Very drinkable, but not memorable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Quite light straw yellow ale with a decent white head. Malt heavy nose with a bit of lemon hop. Much happier in taste - really heavy tastes of lemon, peach, grape with a warming sweet malt. Finish is warm and welcome.

Penderels Oak, Holborn 1 Nov 12. JDW Festivaløl. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Nesten ikke skum. Aroma av trær & frukt. Smaken litt tørr med hint av svisker. Litt syrlig etter hvert.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One-third pint, cask at Penderels Oak, High Holborn. Crystal clear golden-brown body, Naked surface. Modest malt-fruity smell. Well blended flavour of malts and fruits with notes of resin, lemon and grainy malts. Rounded bittersweet ending. True to the style (JDWs real-ale festival, Greater London 01.11.2012).

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted this in Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Warm yeasty dough in the very brief aroma that is hardly there. Thin and slightly resinous mouthfeel verging on watery. Good lacing. Pale malt gives a a very weak digestive biscuit malt that struggles to raise itself above the parapet. There is a faint citric note of grapefruit peel which is very tired and dilute. Wheaty, dry cereal flavour is present in the resiny aftertaste but that too fades fast. A dry bitter finish with a distinct metallic tang right at the very end. Lacking in depth and complexity and would not be on this for a session. It is a poor effort on a Golden Ale, just one to tick off and move on really.
