3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear orange amber with a firm, lovely, creamy, white head. Great duration. Aroma has nice grassy notes, floral freshness, a hint of grapefruit, light crisp malts. Slight biscuits. High carbonation, fairly dry and a bit light mouthfeel. Flavour is fine, a bit grainy and not too crisp maltiness. Fair floral hoppiness with notes of grapfruit and pine. Good, lingering bitter finish.

Pours a bright golden colour with a white fluffy two finger head. The aroma has mainly hints of peach and a little bit of citrus and the taste is fairly fruity with a smooth finish one of hook nortons best beers.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Golden Gallion, Seaford Bridge: Deep golden, not completely clear, fluffy white head with a little lace, medical hoppy and bisquity-fruity nose, the band-aid dominates; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering hoppy finish with a balancing bisquity sweetness. Not the nicest aroma, but all in all a solid and good brew....

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Slightly hazy gold, small white head. Good rich aroma and initial flavour of traditional English hops - lemon, straw and farmyard dominate, with a dusty hop bitterness. The first taste, in fact, made me dream of an English hop revival, it was so redolent of a hot sumemr in the English coutryside. However, a few gulps more and the beer turns sweet, sugary and syrupy - so much so that it eventually drowns out the hops and starts to dissolve your taste. Maybe, unusually, this is a beer that needs to be made weaker? Still worth trying for the aroma and first few sips though.

Hand pulled cask at the Moon & Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Amber/gold with a lively white head. Plenty of grassy hops but they are overpowered by sickly toffee malts and a little diacetyl. However: everyone else in the pub seemed to love it and the cask ran dry in under 3 hours!
