August 13, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Ol Fountain. Slightly hazy light gold with a solid creamy lasting white head. Light aroma On draught at dry grain and lush lightly catty pungent bitterness and light alcohol. Light body and carbonation, longish pungent alpha-bitter grassy finish. Another damned fine beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white creamy head. Clear yellow body. Floral grape aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweet, and somewhat tart, floral resiny taste with earthy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish floral resiny aftertaste with grassy mealy notes. Nice, but served lukewarm, which was a bit warm, even for me. (0.284l keg at The Knott Bar, Manchester.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Marble Arch, Manchester, 28 July) Colour is golden yellow with little head. Nose is fruity with lots of citrus (mostly lemon, but some grapefruit as well) and a grassy hop aroma. Same goes for the taste: fruity with grapefruit and lemon, long bitter (citrus style hop taste) finish. Some sweetness, but well balanced by the citrus. Very nice, hoppy and summery.

Cask @ The Cock Tavern. Light amber color with no head. The aroma’s very sweet orchard fruits and apricots. The taste is light grassy hop, more sweet peaches and plenty of strawberry fruit salad. Light and refreshing. Zippy hints of lemon. Sweet, but very flavorful. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Marble Meet the Brewer event at the CASK, Pimlico, 8th Sept 2010. Clear bright gold looks. Nose of grass and citrus. Medium, very drinkable palate with a very long aftertaste of pink grapefruit. Definitely competing in the same space as Dark Star Hophead. This is all about robust dryness and strong citric flavours.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Marble Arch, Manchester. Golden looks with a smallish white head. Juicy fruit and hop abounded in the nose and flavour which both had a real shine to them. Bitterness spot on. Supremely refreshing and glaggable. Just about all you could want in a summer brew. Only a pity we never had much of a summer itself up here in the North West (again).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Southampton Arms, London. A bright golden orange beer with a small & lasting bubbly white head. Sweet lemon sherbet on the aroma, some muted grapefruit, some creamy sweetness and a pithy back end. Generally similar to the aroma on the palate with a sweet pale malt body and ok citrus hop overtones. Not as bitter as I was anticipating. Light to medium body, soft & rounded on the tongue with a fair length to the finish. Light, fresh, quite delicate & easy drinking.
