Cask conditioned & on handpump at the Derby CAMRA beer fest, on 12/02/05.

A bit of a country farty beer, watery smell. But better tasting, quite hoppy.

Fairly pale ale with a very hopped aroma and nice lightly hopped flavour. Overall a reasonable beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle conditioned. Golden with a small white head. Aromas are buttery, floral and sweet with grapefruit. Flavours are sweet and sour, especially grapefruit with sweet hops. Both sour and dry on the finish. The sourness indicates to me that this bottle may be tainted. Hopefuly it is poor because of this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditoned, White Horse, Hedgerley. Beer Festival Day 1 of 4, beer 5. This is cask conditoned lager, quite similar in style to a Belgian ale and a little like a Belgian wit (spicy). Pale gold, decent head and natural carbonation. Medium body, slighly spicy. Has a flavour that filtered/pasturised lagers cannot even begin to reach.
