3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Probably the most pleasant beer of the evening, but when I survey the elements the score doesn’t add up to a very high score. Initial flavour was nice - thin, reedy hops, with balance. Drops off a little on the finish, into salty malt.

Cask (GBBF 2006): Golden with a white head. Dodgy sulphuric aroma. Some nice hops in the background to distract you from it though. Grassy and refreshing, but the eggs put you off.

(Cask at GBBF, London, 2 Aug) Colour is golden yellow with a frothy head. Nose is fruity with grapefruit and a citrussy, slightly grassy hop aroma.

Cask at GBBF 2006. Sunarise, early in the morning, eh Kook? Gold with disappearing white head. Hay hop aroma. Some juicy malt. Some decent hop too, bit earthy. Could be some Cascade hop? I thought that it was different and interesting.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A golden coloured beer with a citric lemony hop aroma. The taste is hoppy but there is that creamy nasty texture that I find in a lot of English Summer ales. Shudder.
