This Spring beer is a traditional bitter colour, its subtle malt flavour is complimented with a fine finish resulting from the use of Golding and Fuggles hops varieties.

Cask, Alehouse, Chelmsford, half, 6th June 2015. White lacing and a golden and amber appearance. Loads of UK hops. Blackcurrants. Old socks. Taste is blackcurrants, thistle, lemons and faint citrus. Not my thing.

tombyars (1512) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Pump clip shows a cuckoo? but it looks like a blue version of Lichtenstein’s Oriole to me! Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white creamy head. Slight note of fruity lychees in the short floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a zesty fruit note of citric fruit with pink grapefruit and gooseberry dominant. Cereal flavour evident in the bitter hoppy aftertaste. Finish is tart with sweet notes fleeting. An ok summer session ale but I would stick with Black Adder!

jmgreenuk (6495) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 2, 2013
Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is dry malt leading to a medium to weak bitter flavour, with a smooth hoppy malt palate and lingering bitterness in the finish. Serve on the cool side for a fine session bitter.
