Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3, on 4 August 2011. Golden colour with a thin white head. Clean and dry with a fair amount of citrus in evidence. Firm mouthfeel. Didn’t notice any honey. Another solid blonde from Mighty Oak but there’s not really too much to distinguish it from the crowd.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Blond ale, bland ale, what’s in a name? Slight nuttiness. Decent smooth palate, but nothing there to even woo me, let alone wow me.
