3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the Windsor Castle W8. Very pale golden bitter. Classic dry Pennine interpretation of an English blonde ale, dry flinty malt character with light bitter hop finish. I was brought up on stuff like this so maybe biased, and it’s not characterful enough to be world beating, but I like it and had a couple quite quickly.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Grain and cereal notes. Subtle lemon aroma.
Appearance: Clear, pale golden body with a small white head. Medium carbonation.
Taste: Like the aroma: grain and cereal. Quite nutty with muted citrus flavours.
Palate: Thin body, slick mouthfeel. Lively carbonation.
Overall: Solid but boring. Reminds me of Inveralmond’s Ossian.

50cl bottle from the Beer Boutique, Putney. Straw with a loose white head and high carbonation; grainy aroma; crisp grainy taste with a touch of citrus; and a reasonable, fresh, herbal bitterness as well. Pretty good for such a low ABV.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale and massively hoppy for this ABV without suffering from some of the sourness that pale beers of this strength tend to do. Quite An achievement and a decent session beer. If a bit dry.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 pale gold pour, tight thick white head.
weak hop aroma with a similar flavour. some maltiness.
quite thin palate and a very bitter finish (too much)
cask. town street tavern. horsforth, leeds.
must have been an off pint. the last few i’ve had have been much better. loads more hop aroma and flavour. the strong bitter finish is still there, but I like it now!
