(Cask at Pikkulintu, 20130301) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, grass and dried straw. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. A very stylewise correct and nice English bitter.

Cask handpull, The Felix, Nuneaton, 17/11/12. Creamy gold lined with lace. Lemon curd and weak flowers on nose. Floral, lemon zest, tweak of smoke, deep biscuit notes. Slightly astrigent afters. Doesn’t convince.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/2 at Gateshead ’spoons. Hazy gold with a dense white head. Grapefruit in the aroma, and predominantly in the flavour, tempered by sauvignon blanc flavour, and a candy aftertaste.Lots of tangy bite, fuller-bodied than you might expect. At the first sip I thought"Oh well, another of those grapefruity blond ales that are so ubiquitious at the moment", but this is more than the sum of its parts. Nice beer

Looked inviting after pouring. Crisp refreshing flavour with enough hop impact to be interesting.

Reasonable session bitter, but a bit too yeasty and bready. Pleasant dry finish but an uninspiring bitter.
