3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (backlog). Golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is quite a bunch of floral and grassy hops, with some mild sweetish malts to go with it. Flavour is quite similar, but also has some bitter grassy and berryish notes to it.

Bottle at The Queens Head, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a foamy, white head. A bit of lightly toasted malts in the nose, some straw. Light to medium sweet flavor, light tang to the malts, some wet hay. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Bready malt finish, some leafy bitterness, dough, toast, faint citrus.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’12. Gold with white head. This is a real hop monster and very good because of it. There is a lightish maltiness but a crunching hop impact, passion fruit and apricot, good depth, bitter, drying. Really pretty good.

Cask at Bree Louise with Sarah. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of pine hop with a hint of grass backed by a note of biscuit. Flavor has a nice pine hop with a hint of resin and a grain backbone. Easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask gravity, Derby Winter BF, 17/02/12. Dusted, peachy amber with a loose but well-retained head. Flowery honey aroma. Pleasant with a stewed tea, Liptons iced with peach, background nut husk taste. Good green fruity hop burps. A little meaty but, hey, it’s a festival. Unexciting, not my kind of hoppy...but not bad.
