3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Clean and tasty gold ale. There’s some light grassiness in the aroma, the taste is slightly earthy but there’s a little citrusy grapefruit and a dry papery finish. Great session strength beer, with enough character and taste to keep drinking and enjoying.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle BBE: Apr 2016. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber body with medium, creamy, tight, off-white head. Medium-light biscuity aroma with limey citrus and a hint of cardboard. Medium-heavy sweetness and very little bitterness. Very light-bodied with a silky texture, low carbonation and no finish. Maybe a bit too cold to take anything from this. Very light and bland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Dog and Gun, Keswick (as "Keswick Woof and Bang") - Hazy straw body, thick pillowy white head. Lots of citrus at the top of the aroma, with a grassiness and resinous at the back. Taste is equally grassy, but has a decent hoppy kick to pull it out of the bland. Unspectacular, but refreshing.

Cask conditioned at The Langstrath Country Inn, Stonethwaite, Cumbria. Gold with white head. Sweetish, honeyed, fruity beer, light and fairly flowery with just a finishing bitterness. Very decent after a long haul over Greenup Edge, I had several.

Cask in Eaten by Monsters, Carlisle. Deep golden with a good off-white head. Not much to report about the flavour. A citrusy beer with a little toast that’s pretty bland and watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Ambleside Wines.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - mostly pale malt but just a hint of citrus.
Taste - a bit more citrus but still dominated by pale malt.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and quite a pleasant finish though more bitterness would not have been amiss.
Overall - very sessionable if a little uninteresting.
