Theydon_Bois (13371) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh - 08/12/12. Clear light golden with a good sized dense white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose is light pale malts, cereals, light citrus. Taste follows, light floral tones, hops, touch of mango, citrus notes. Medium bodied, soft fine carbonation, smooth on the palate. Ok stuff.

Taste - soft sweet pale malts, soft fruits, light citrus, touch of lemon, light flavour, nice n easy
Palate - light body, fairly oily. Finish - soft mellow pale malts, soft citrus, some cereal malts
Overall - Bit low on flavour but what was there was nice and there’s no faults here - one of their better ones

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Standard malt spikes in the nose for Houston, lime cordial tinge to a light yellow body and non existent head. Sharp undiluted citrus on initial taste but a very watery palate and drafty hop finish. Oily mouthfeel with a gritty finish that leaves your teeth with a squeaky barely water lick, in keeping with a Kiwi(!) but not too pleasant with an NZ hopped beer. Cask, Bow Bar.

mr_h (3852) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Cask by handpump at Three Judges, Glasgow - clear yellow, bubbly white head, mild floral hop aroma, citrus, slight sharpness, easy to drink
