3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 15/05/2005. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington.
Lightish yellow gold with a pure white, soap sudsy, head. Disappears after the first glance. Bold fruity aromatics are very reminiscent of summer - mostly peaches and nectarines with a touch of citrus. Sweet malt flavour blends reasonably well with an earthy, almost peaty, hop notes. A bit lighter in weight than you might expect from a beer this sweet. Palate, which is a little oily, has aslightly unpleasant metallic that lingers. A good drop but a little disappointing given the breweries reputation.

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.
