Cask at the White Lion, Norwich, "Boxing Day Expedition" crawl, 26th Dec 08. Golden amber with no head. Honey sweet and then dry & floral at the finish. Standard weight. The hops get out onto the nose too. Nice and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. At the Pembury Tavern. Cloudy light amber pour with a small head. Floral aroma with very mild caramel malt and a hint of sourness - not a lot of grain here. The taste follows - dry, floral, light grain and a real lemony sourness that oddly seems to work pretty well. It felt slick on my palate, and the body seemed quite solid - while it wasn’t a particularly bitter finish, it really took its time, leaving a dry, acidic linger that made me quite thirsty for my next beer. A nice pint, for all that.

Cask @ Oakdale Arms, London.
Pours hazy golden with practically no head. Wonderful, crisp aroma, good pine, fresh malts and a little honey. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour start malty, rather crisp, then gains a long, lingering, slightly dry hoppy aftertaste. Nice and drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light golden. Herbal, lightly limey, certainly zesty aromatic hop nose. Easy-drinking and sessionable golden ale that appears quite flowery, very light bodied. Straight-on quaffer with no obtrusive points, but little character ultimately.
