3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Cask (Kingston Arms, Cambridge) - as "Kingston Drop", guessing this is it.
7- Sweet graininess, caramel, a touch of citrus hop.
3 Rich orange, small brief head
7- Simple sweet quaffable bitter. Kind of a golden ale, but a little low in hops.
3+ Soft palate, carbonation low. Finish gently caramelly and fruity.
13 Hoppier than your average Nethergate - almost detectable!
Rerate: Cask (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge) - as CBD (6:3+:6:3:12=3.0)
Mashy malty aroma. Mid orange, tiny head. Sweet fruity caramelly body. Refreshing palate, soft carbonation. Sharp but not offensive. Previous was better.

Cask conditioned at The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge. Gold to amber with white head. Hoppy bright bitter, perfect for a lunchtime session, perhaps on the fruity side, I got apricot & lychee, but a very decent light bitter.
