2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in March 1994. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Short floral hops in the brief aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit malt with citric fruit notes of grapefruit. Dusty hops present in the short resiny aftertaste. Finish is bright and fruity with grapefruit pith leaving a slight astringency in the palate. An ok Golden Ale.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Swan & Rushes, Leicester. A golden coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A nice fresh hoppy nose with grapefruits and oranges. Hops in the mouth also, although perhaps not to the same extent. It’s really decent and would make a great session.

Cask gravity at Ealing BF 2008. Gold, thin white head. Floral hop aroma, pretty standard golden beer, bit lacking on malts. Not enough hops. It’s alright, no real interest.
