3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold colour. Forceful grassy hop aroma, albeit a little green and clammy. Spicy citric hops on the palate (not pallet!). The finish is dry and quite austere. A commendable thirst-quenching hoppy session bitter. Handpump, Head of Steam, Euston, London NW1.

Cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond as ’Kelburn Goldihops’, 3.8%. Matt dirty orange, still, clear, small scummy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is airy and watery up front, some green apple later on. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is thin, apple, some astringent banana peel, oatcake, soft bitterness. Drinkable but insipid. Pretty poor really.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a thin, watery beer, there is a damp, grainy cereal character, then a dullish floral note. Not really for me.
