3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Saucy Pears.
Appearance - very lively head. Golden.
Nose - lightly funky, lemon.
Taste - lemon custard, yoghurt. Light grassiness.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - the yeast note is too dominant. Is this what the brewer intended?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle: shared with Tony, the bloke who brought this to the 3rd De Bierboom Bottle Exchange on 6th Feb 2015. Golden pour with a good, clean white blanket on top. The nose has citrus hoppiness and a mild malty molasses undertone, the taste follows in the same way: a nice blend of ingredients that marry together well. Couldn’t write any more: the night had just began and there were some monsters to conquer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham
Hazy golden color, with small and persistent frothy head. Mild aroma of malt, with a light cheese trace. The mouthfeel is smooth and quite dry, with some dry toffee flavor, and bitterness well beyond British boundaries, leading to a drier final; there is a bit of aromatic hop components.
Not a modern take, just a good classic Golden Ale.
