2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask@oe13. Yellow hazy. Estery nose. Some ripe banana, some yeast. Full bdied, slight oily. Doesn’t really feel that boozy, but does feel like getting it boozy was more important than flavour here. Like kilju with some finesse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Golden beer, with a very loose froth head. Looked and smelt like a Golden. In fact, it tasted much like a Golden too, but a good one, with a nettley, crushing bitterness to finish. Never clocked this as a Barley, never even clocked it as being 7.5%. Enjoyed it though - cut through the spiciness of my accompanying Thai meal a treat.

Cask, gravity, at St Neots BF ’09 (’Booze on the Ouse’). Gold. Aroma of Corona lemonade, but taste is thicker, oilier. Brimming with citrus. A little bitterness. Immensely, treacherously drinkable.
