3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the White Lion, Tenterden. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is toast, floral, light spice and citrus peel. The taste is crisp, citrusy, grainy, toast, floral and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not terribly exciting, but there’s nothing wrong with it either. Ok.

Bottle. Golden and clear. Citrus with a slight hoppiness. Well balanced and a good example of this style.

Bottle; golden brown, clear, no head to speak of; woody, hoppy aroma; zesty citrus peel, biscuity malt; quite fizzy, bitter; ok, but lacks any real generosity of flavour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Poured an amber colour with a light haze & a fine, loose, bubbly & fading off-white head. Good juicy mid fruits with sweet overtones & a subtle tang beneath on the aroma. Flavours of caramel, floral hops, yeast, apple, pale malt & biscuit. Light to medium body, medium length & soft intensity bitterness in the finish. Some zest towards the end. Drinkable but could have been cleaner & crisper for my liking.
