3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Booth’s..Ilkley, funnily enough. Lager gold heaped with a loose bathfoam head. Aroma of dandelions, babbling Yorkshire brooks, soft stones, woods whitening with Hawthorn blossom. Taste of Rich Tea biscuits, slate rubbed with caramel; clean grassy, biscuit character with a deep, barely discernible undercurrent of tangerine. Quietly impressive.

On tap at North Bar, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose brings out mushroomy English malts and very light floral notes. Flavour is very soft, with biscuity malt, delicate floral hops and mushroomy notes. Very soft and restrained, though easy to drink. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handful at The Ship (Monument). Very bright slightly light clear gold with a solid creamy/foamy lasting white head. Aroma is vaguely grassy, white wine, a hint of sultanas. Taste - golden ale grassy/grainy backbone, some weird very tart green fruit overlay - rhubarb? - not much alcohol. Slick, average body and carbonation, finishes quick leaving just a vague green fruit sourness behind. Interesting.
