3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Amber with a tight cream head, some effervescence; and a grainy aroma; rather thin to start with weak fruit flavours and a grainy body, but then improving with a full body and honey and tropical fruit flavour - perhaps as it warmed; the finish has light fresh hops and some biscuit. A pleasant golden ale.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 Cask, on 4th September 2009, at the Racehorse, Carshalton, Surrey, UK. Clear, copper-coloured with a small white head of foam. Bitter with roundedness from malts tempering the citric hop. Saline mouthfeel and the drinker left wanting more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (South Western Arms, Southampton) - Golden in colour. Grapefruit and pineapple aroma. Hoppy taste with sweet pineapple and grapefruit followed by a bitter, hoppy and fruity finish. This beer is very inconsistent (just like the brewery) and I have had this in better form but it’s still fairly nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
<i>Cask conditioned at The Bree Louise, London</i>
Deep blond color. The aroma has some malt, caramel and sugar; light hop, lightly grassy and citrusy. Light malt flavor, semi-sweet mouthfeel, with a quite good hopping, a bit grassy and floreal. Side-to-side with the Skinner’s Cornish Knocker it’s not so characteristic and original, but not bad anyway.
