Cask (Maypole, Cambridge) (6:3:6:2:11+=2.8+)
Pretty cookie-cutter golden ale - watery, flat palate, pale malts, bland. A bit wooly, but very little remains in the finish. Too bland. No fan of such pale bitters.

Cask (handpump) at the Kean’s Head, Nottingham on 14 October 2014. Pale gold. Thin white head. Pleasant, assertive citrus character throughout. Just a touch of biscuity malt to provide some body. Good lingering bitter finish. Very refreshing. Plenty of character at a modest ABV. Does the job nicely.

Cask @ Dirty Dicks, Halifax. Blonde with a creamy head. It’s a medium to high bitterness ale with a sweet nose and a gritty malty texture and taste.

Hand pulled at The Vat & Fiddle, Nottingham. Strongly hopped aroma. Dry and sweaty hops taste with a lingering bitter finish. Styled as a session ale but not as easy drinking as, say, a Harvest Pale. A bit one-dimensional - water and dry bitter hops; not a lot else.

Cask conditioned at Harbiry Beer Fest ’12. Greenish Gold with white head. Nice little session type beer, light but with enough hops for a tropical fruity flavour. Some lemon, some gooseberry, lasting palate. Very pleasant.
