3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled cask at the Moon under Water (JDW) Leicester Square. Gold with a lively white head. Astringently bitter but far better than most beers that I’ve sampled from this brewery. Lacks balance and subtlety.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Sir John Oldcastle, Farringdon (JDW).
Clear golden with a half finger of fluffy white head.
Sweet hops and malt on the nose with some berry fruit.
Faint lemon notes in the taste with a pinch of wheat and berry fruit - moderate bitterness.
Light to medium bodied with a dry finish.
Quite enjoyed this as the first beer of the day!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Not sure of the ABV here, the pump clip said 4.4%, the brewer’s web site says 4.0%, but has a picture of the pump clip showing 4.8%. Anyway, it’s a good showcase for the Citra hops. A brilliant amber pour with a loose white head; crassy aroma; light, grassy hop flavour over a dry fruity body; and a gentle but lasting bitterness to fins. Light and refreshing overall.
