Cask; Regular.
Colour: Golden yellow. The use of Mount Hood as the aroma hop gives this beer a pungent hoppy fruitiness; think citrus fruit notably lime. There is also a hint of cereal malt on the nose which evokes the spirit of the mash from whence the beer came. On the palette the overwhelming sensation is citrus fruit (lime marmalade but also overripe grapes spring to mind) along with warming alcoholic esters before a bitter, hoppy and dry finish which is enlivened by lasting citrus (lime) and grainy malt making a late surge. A delicious blonde beer to be taken with care.

Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 21 Jun 2012. Poured golden, with a spotty white head. Aroma of soft fruit, floral hops and grass. Some fruity hop flavour, with bready malt and straw. Finish was chewy grain, peaches and hay.

Copper-brown, thin white patchy head; no big aroma; thick mouthfeel; grainy malt and chewy juicy citrus fruit quickly gives way to a hoppy bitter finish; there’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s nowhere near as good as their Zig Zag Stout, which I forsook to try this.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Live from Knickersby Spoons. Bright gold with a loose white top. Muted lime and tangerine aroma. Solid husky foundations overlaid with orange-accented hop. Some warm Tupperware impressions; almond and oatmeal traces. Bitter finish softening into pear and malted milk biscuit. Not bad.

Fine looking, golden ale with little aroma, but its fine texture ensures a great taste.

berkshirejohn (5950) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Hazy pale amber with thin white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; tropical fruit aroma - perhaps peach; a smooth floury body with an intensely sweet, tropical fruit flavour; then a pleasanlty assertive bitterness to counteract the sweetness. Nice.

Overall - Couldn’t finish this...a chuck out
