3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Cask. Half pint. 5.Jul.2012
My first beer after a pleasant and interesting walk with Rune & Stefan to The Crescent in Salford, Manchester. I decided to start the day with White Which because of the name, as I loved watching Narnia when I was little. It turned out to be a good choice. Clear yellow body with spare creamy head. Cheese, sweat, damp basement and mold to the nose. Thus the taste was a surprise, sweet and malty, some grain, vanilla, flowers and hint of herbs. Surprisingly full bodied!

Cask conditioned handpump Old Contemptibles Birmingham 24/02/14. A light golden coloured beer. A good citrus hoppy aroma and taste. Nice sticky marmalade notes. A good balance. Tasty and well constructed golden ale.

Tasted this in Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow on 3rd March 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear straw in colour with a thin creamy white head. Hint of wheat grain and boiled eggs in the short lived aroma. Thin but refreshing, resiny mouthfeel and superb lacing throughout. Pale malts give a huge whack of juicy fruit flavours full in the mouth, with lychees and gooseberry to the fore. Floral hop resins deliver a dry dusty note to the short aftertaste. Finish is slightly edging towards the malt with lychees evident again and a subtle note of dry oak cask present in the palate. This is a decent session Golden Ale and well recommended.

Hand pulled at The Shakespeare (Nicholson’s), Birmingham. Dry citrus hoppiness with a short finish. Good session ale; not much else. Watery

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Om tap at the Haymarket.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - sygar puffs. So malt plus sweetness.
Taste - pale malt and honey.
Palate - light to medium bodied. Could be cleaner on the finish.
Overall - not the worst but doesn’t particularly do anything.

Pint in York bij een pup. In het glas een goudgeel bier, fijne romige schuimkraag, nauwelijks co2. Wel een mooi ronde smaak waardoor het lekker doordringt. In de nasmaak en geur komen de mout en hop naar voren. Goed biertje, maar niets speciaals.

Low carbonation, some dry hop, a slight spice. Perfectly enjoyable if far from exciting.

(Cask): Light yellow colour, small white head. Citrus fruit aroma, slight floral characteristics. Tarty citrus taste with a sweet malt background. Nice but boring.

Cask. Blonde yellow ale with a bit of haze. Thin white head with lumps. Nose is fruity. Lemon, grapefruit. Tart in the mouth, and bitter. Lemon and grapefruit present with a little bit of tangerine marmalade. There's a sweetness cutting right through it with the malt. Finish is a bit overly sweet.

Cask at The Old Black Bull, Preston, which seems only to serve variations on blonde beer based on this evening’s evidence! This was a good example of the style though, golden yellow, thick white head. Lots of character from the citrus and spice hops and bread and hay from the malts. Cleansing finish. Nice.
