1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
28th April 2012: half pint, cask in The Craft, London.
Pale gold, clear and clean (lager-like): on top a thin coating of white foam.
Next to no smell, slight citrus hop wafts maybe, but not much really, of anything.
Thin and struggled to give off any strong flavours in the mouth: might be fine on a hot day after cutting the grass, but not on a cold, wet London evening in April. Didn’t float my boat at all, couldn’t even find the alcohol in the taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask handpull, The Blue Pig, Wolvey, 26/06/12. Thick-lacing, conditioned gold with a dense, stable foam. Heavily buttered, light rub of lemony hop aroma. Pint of honeyed, buttered biscuits basically; struggling to get through the butter- not diacetyl, just biscuitiness. OK but lacks hop.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Knights Templar, JDW, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a tight, foamy white head. Aroma holds doughy malts and light, lemony citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor, more doughy sugars, some mild straw bitterness, hints of citrus fruits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, some white sugar, dough, white bread, dry hay. Very basic stuff. Nothing too wrong, but nothing too right.
