3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle courtesy of my Dad. Pours a fairly clear medium gold with an ample white head. Aroma is sweet fruit and crisp, clean hops. Taste follows suit with a little caramel malt in there as well. It’s very fresh and clean despite being very average. Nails the common English ale, would make a lovely summer patio beer, but just short of the mark for me.

On tap at the Rake. Light semi crisp palate. Curious bubblegum and banana sweetness. Creamy malt. A little orange in the undertone. If this was a blind tasting I would have marked this as a wheat beer on flavour! Softish dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
poured clear and golden - although I believe it is not filtered, the head was white and quite loose. The nose was classic banana and clove notes dominating. In the mouth, again cloves, spice, muted bananas but with a dry crisp finish, which I found very refreshing. I felt though that the flavours were a bit muted and could benefit from being ramped up a bit.

On tap at the White Horse 40 from 40 Festival, 1st May 2010. Golden amber. Incredibly fruity with lots of banana and vanilla. Ok weight and palate but too one-dimensional.
