3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Baring Hall Hotel, Grove Park. Gold pour with a white head. Light malt aromas with a splash of wet moss and vanilla. Christ, I wish I could make out my spider writing, according to my notes the aroma was vanilla, light citrus and dusty keys. That’s me baby, one of the pioneers of weird noses! Haven’t written much else about this one.... probably confused myself with the dusty keys reference.... or is that an ’h’ there...could be ’hops’.. enough!!

Cask@Baring Hall Hotel, Grove Park - golden pour with a small to medium creamy persistent white head and lacing. Fruity citrus hoppy, sweet bready malts, nice floral notes, easy drinking and refreshing with good medium bitter finish. More of a golden ale than bitter to me, and a good one at that.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Cask (GBBF2011)
Simple malty aroma - honewy there for sure. Lovely light malts and a great EKG bitter and aromatic combo - yum!
Rerate: Cask (Dolphin, Canterbury) (6:3:6+:4:13=3.2+)
Pretty tasty bitter. Tight head, but it wasn’t through a sparkler. Nice dry bitter bite. Long tingly finish. Full palate, nice roast.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 12, 2011 - cask at The Harp (Chados Place). Light amber-gold with an average creamy/frothy mottled white/off-white head. Solid light, wheaty grain overlaid by pungently floral bitterness, no alcohol, dry and a bit grassy and oily - taste follows, very much a generously hopped golden ale, on the grassy/floral side of things. Average body, mild carbonation, a long dry pungent floral finish - a very, very good golden ale, would gladly have another pint or two of this one again.

Cask at the Alma, London, Oktoberfest Beer Festival. Pours clear, rich gold with a filmy head. Malt, caramel and cracker aroma. Sweet flavor with bread and earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with great balance, having some bready malts and fine, earthy hops. An overall mellow character. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 8 Aug 2010) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, dried apricots and fresh floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, biscuity malt and generous doses of fresh floral hops in the finish. Rather thin on the malt side, but with a generous hop character. Balanced sweetness. Nice and refreshing.
