Cask (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge)
Gently fruity hops. Otherwise pretty dull. The hops are the only thing that save it from mere adequacy, and they barely do that. A rather simple beer.

Named after the ship all can see in the historic dockyard in Portsmouth, this golden ale without a head is bland but drinkable. Little aroma although has a fruity aftertaste that pleases.

Cask conditioned Handpump Vat & Fiddle Nottingham A light gold coloured beer with a tight white head and lacing. The aroma is tangy lemon and lime jelly. The taste is fairly sharp with more lime jelly. Very new World hoppy but perhaps a bit too tangy sharp.
