Blonde pint with a thin head. Drinks a little thin/watery and quite bland. Some hops but not much else. Forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, some grapefruit, subtle lime, biscuit, grain and soft grassy hops. Taste is similar of lemon, some grapefruit, subtle lime, slight biscuit and grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, slightly biscuity, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A mainly malty aroma but the taste is fruity and well balanced. An average golden ale, easy drinking, probably a good transition beer from lager.

Bottle. Asda. Pale gold. Light haze. Soapy head. Decent, lime citrus. Soapy hop. Grain. Taste is crisp bitter. Light body. Well matched fizz level. Finishes zesty bitter. The best of the four bottled Kelham beers I’ve had lately, by a mile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Sheffield haul by D&M, thanks Miles. - Thin lime peel, kafir leaf, berry and mineral notes of starfruit and chlorine, with a catty, Simcoe-like edge. Almost wheaty grain notes in taste, pickled lemon, aspirine. Finish is quite harshly bitter, leaning towards American pale ale, a deft herbal infusion closing off a thin Lady Grey ice tea. Still enjoyable, especially if you live in Lagerland deprived of most kinds of low abv UK ales.

Cask at the Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a clear straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light skunky malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a woody hop light resin palate and a lingering bitter finish. Nice, fresh and very drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a small head this was a bottle but quite cloudy aroma and taste of strawberry and lime quite a dry finish but not long lasting. Easy drinking but to citrusy for my liking.

On cask at Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Fresh on but the aroma of this beer is quite skunky. Noted by other raters too I see. Golden pour which takes a while to settle, OK golden ale spoilt by that aroma.

At my home with wim. Expired march 2014! Clear blond colored beer with medium white head and medium carbonation. Herby granny aroma. Medium palate. Finish is sweet herby. Brewed because the pale rider was too strong for the uk, as what the owner of kelham tolde us during open brewer day. A pity case pale rider is mocht bitter.
