2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Champion - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Grainy bready malt nose, some toasty leaves. Light sweet flavor with cheap, creamy malts, mild dough, bitter leaves, hints of citrus, touches of rubber. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Basic bready malt finish, low bitterness, some dough, white sugar, faint grass. Basic, underwhelming.

Tasted this in Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow in April 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin clean white head. Dusty hop present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a dry digestive biscuit base with a hint of orange but fleeting. Floral hop resins give a citrus bite in the long aftertaste. Finish is bitter with a note of orange pith in the mouth. An ok session Golden Ale but really lacking in complexity of flavours.

Cask @ The Lansdowne Leicester. Golden coloured (unsurprisingly) fruity aroma. Slightly tropical fruit taste, very slight bitterness. Itâ€™s alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Definitely not my thing. Biscuit and balls. I don’t like drinking balls. Of any kind *waits for a smart-ass comment from Dom*

Pint at the Rose and Crown in Reading. Amber brown with short lived bubbly head. Nice dried fruit aroma. Light, bitter, dry and fruity. Refreshing. Could be a decent session ale.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Clear amber pour with a moderately fizzy head that left a lingering foam. Sharp bitter with some refined caramel in balance. Still fizzy on the tongue despite the cask. Well blended. Feels simple, but also cleverly perfect. Quite nice.

Quite a sweet bitter, lots of malt prevalent, slightly cloying. Not bad but not one I’d look out for.

Clear Golden pour with small off-white head. Smooth sweet very pale malts slightly fruity and marginally hopped. Dryish finish. Easy drinking but nothing terrible exciting for the palate

On tap at Global Brew. Decided to rate here as it was on tap versus bottle, but not cask either. Pours a bright pale golden color with an OK white head that diminished fairly quickly. Taste was a smooth mouthcoating sweet very pale malt with little hop bitterness and a bready character. Very much like a Boddington’s. Pretty good.
