Cask conditioned gravity dispense Olde England Northampton 02/04/13. A bright golden beer with a bubbly white head. Citrus and floral notes are dominated by sweetness. An elderflower element. A little chewy. Turns out over sweet and a bit of a struggle.

Cask, handpump at The Devonshire, Cambridge Sat 14th April 2012 with Loz Mid gold with a white rim of bubbles. A superb balance of hoppiness and sweet maltiness, this is already proving to be quite a hit with me and Loz who’ve both decided that we need to stay for another one (of these!) Tropical fruits, juicy, fruity, tasty, lovely! A7 A5 T9 P4 Ov16 4.1

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The White Lion, Norwich. A clear, bright golden orange coloured beer that poured with a fine, loose and bubbly, slowly disappearing white head. Juicy and fresh aromatic floral and citrus hop aromas - tangerine and peach primarily to the fore. Tangerine and peach hop overtones on the tongue, marmalade, light grapefruit and lemon pith at the back. Some delicate biscuity maltiness underneath. A dryness chips in at the end cutting through the otherwise juicy profile. Quite crisp on the palate, light to medium body, refreshing and softish mouthfeel with a lingering bittersweet finish. Towards the end of the barrel but not to its detriment.
