2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Moorland golden hen
Mid amber coloured ale with a weak white head. Faint hop aroma, citrusy and a tad floral. Weak mouthfeel. A dry taste to start, with a biscuity malt flavour that is followed by the citrusy floral hop element from the aroma. A touch fizzy in the finish. Tasted at The Lodge, Old Hunstanton, Norfolk.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Nutwell Lodge near Exmouth. Decent ale to accompany my carvery: blonde, nice head and good lacing; mildly hopped with a light hint of honey in the finish. Very little aroma but this was a perfectly refreshing session ale, reminiscent of Harvest Pale though not quite as dry. Particularly good given this is by Greene King, who are generally not my favourite brewer.

Cask handpull, The Blue Pig, Wolvey, 14/07/12. Lager-gold with a thick shaving foam top. Some good resiny orange and pine in the aroma. Bright and juicy with a good smack of orangey hop over soft oatmeal and vanilla. Fades into bitterness. Alright. Actually, it’s almost good. A grudging 3.3 from me.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Reasonable, biscuity body carrying a light, fruity hop, quite lingering, smooth and with a bit more oomph would be quite tasty. Not bad though.
