3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Blue Boar, Billericay Essex. Pours a pale orange with a lighter golden edge and a tight white head. It has a malty, biscuity aroma with floral notes and a hint of orange. Dry, smooth, bitter and lightly carbonated on the palate. Good lacing down the glass. The taste has a slight bitter grapefruit and orange peel flavour becomming biscuit before a wave of bitter burnt sugar. Quite a complex beer with a dry biscuit aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington. Almost lager looks with streaming carbonation and a dense Gillette head. Herbal, pine and mown grass aroma with some orange peel yeastiness. Bit one dimensional with a dominant polished pine sort of taste; some soda and pale malt nuttiness. OK but drab.

Cask at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Amber in colour with a tight cream head; crainy, citrus aroma; full bodied, with a an orange fruit flavour; quite sweet at first, but then well-balanced with a sharp grapefruit finish. A really mouth-watering Golden Ale. Ecellent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a clear, yellow-gold with a faint, filmy head. Sugary malt aroma with mild sweat, straw and citrus. Flavor is nice, pretty sweet with some honey and sun-kissed hay, lightly bitter with tangerine and grass. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, lightly bitter, some bread and easy citrus rind. Very pleasant beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Red Bull, Cambridge)
Simple dark bitter. Slight fruity aroma, full palate, rich malty retronasals, fruity and bitter hops. Decent long finish - bitter and dark and resiny, with a touch of grapefruit. Tasty English bitter, better than ’golden’ implies.
