Slight chill haze, golden with nice lacing. Aroma is musky, citrus, pear, apple skins and light honey. Flavour is honeyish, with pearish fruitiness, piney, citrusy, woody hop bitterness. Light body lets it down a bit.

Had at the Blue Posts in London. Might have been a bad cask - it was very warm. But tasted lots of alcohol especially on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at the White Friar (Coventry)
Stopping back into this excellent pub after a day of sightseeing I went straight for this clip. It was not a bad choice at all as the reward was a well balanced cask selection that I could have drunk all day in the heat.
Aroma / Appearance - The semitransparent golden body and thin white head are hallmarks of a well kept beer. Lemons, orange peels, and melons give it a summery fruity feel. The sweetness in the base aroma ties it all together nicely.
Flavor / Palate - The creamy mouthfeel is soft on the tongue as it provides bursts of lemons and orange juice. The dry transition is a bit like drinking watery marmalade. Finally there is a nice bitter finish that hangs on the throat like cloudy mist. This is a solid release for the summer months.
