3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle whilst on the brewery tour at Loose Cannon, Abingdon, Oxon 12.06.12 Pours a nice clear gold with a little bubbling of white head going on. Nice light prickly bitterness actually its is more carbonation prickliness on second thoughts as there isn’t too much bitterness. This moves onto a sweet maltiness which tends to dominate, it really needs a greater tang and fruity bite, lacking a little hoppy blast, its ok but far from the best of these beers tonight.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from Culham Post Office, Culham, Oxon. Gold with short lived head. There appeared to be very little life to this, caramelised, toffeeish with little of the citric notes from the cask version, grainy, rather dull really.
