On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma is a little fruity with caramel, barley and yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a little dry finish. Just OK with lingering yeast and grassy hops.

1 pint cask, Golden Rule, Edinburgh. Light golden colour with a small hint of brown. Small, but nice looking white creamy head. Rich malty and crisp hoppy aromas. Smooth flavours balanced by a nice hoppiness. Very drinkable.

On cask @ the Guildford Arms. Pours blonde with a considerable haze and a decent head. The nose has lemon and flowers with a touch of yeastiness too. The taste pretty much reiterates the yeasty lemon thing. The palate is light bodied with a lean texture which goes into the finish. Not very complicated but does the job.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Malt and hops. Looks almost watery clear. Light gold like Aspall but without the fizz. Tastes of stale hops. pretty poor really. Maybe the pub is to blame becaue previous comments contradict.
