Hand-pulled half-pint in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 25th Sep 2014. Pale golden body with a white crown. Fairly sweet yet citrusy feel to both the aroma and taste. Lemon and pineapple flavours combine and contradict each other while the alcohol hides in the background.

On draught at The Coronet, Holloway Rd. Clear golden colour, frothy head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavours are a good blend of fruity hops and toffee malts. Raisins and apples are there, too. Nice

Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage. Straw with a thin cream head; sweet and grainy aroma; smooth oily texture, swet and grainy flavour with a hint of tropical fruit; the finish is dry with some quinine bitterness and warming, spicy, alcohol. More of a Barley Wine in my opinion.

Cask @ The Old Fountain. The pour’s deep gold with a tiny head. The nose is syrupy cereal sweetness, some peaches and apricot. Summery fruits. The taste is more mild grain. Honey and plenty of summery orchard fruit. Baked bread. Medium body, a bit too syrupy on the palate. Overall, not bad, though Oakham make some much better stuff than this.

Pours yellow with a small head. Aroma of citrusy fruity notes, malts and spices. Taste is smooth, malty and fruity with notes of spices and citrus. Finish is smooth and sticky with some spices. A bit unbalanced.

Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of candied fruits, lemon, elderflower, some pineapple, a little grapefruit and slight summer berries. Taste of candied fruits, summer berries, pineapple, lemon, some elderflower, subtle caramel and alcohol. Full bodied and an oily texture. A sweet, fruity bitterness in the finish. Sweet and really fruity, definitely a sipper.

Half pint from the brewpub: poured orange yellow with a fizzy white head. Earthy hop aroma with light candyish notes. Mild earthiness in the flavor with some citrus and a bit of sourness. Doesn’t taste like 7.2%. Smooth bitter finish. Okay.

GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.
