3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Cask handpull, The Briar Rose, Brum, 10/11/12. Orange gold capped with white. Really decent orange and pink grapefruit tang off the bat outshining the del Wotsit. Perfumed, stewed, well-judged squeeze of grapefruit over unobtrusive but solid malt. Deep bittering, back-of-tongue linger. Draped with condition. More understated orange, grapefruit, grass, thistle and floral aroma. Quietly delicious; approaching genuine IPA territory. Beer of The Festival for me. Apart from the Feral. And maybe the Roosters.

Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 08/11/12. A golden beer with a tight white head and lace. A lightly fruity beer with clean flavours. Hoppy hints with a touch of cookie dough. It’s the epitome of smooth as there are no edges. Passable and stylistically accurate I guess.
