50cl bottle from the Home Brew Shop, Aldershot. Straw coloured with a loose white head and heavy carbonation to start; the aroma has a touch of honey; the flavour is light with citrus, honey and grassy notes; and a muted, biscuity, finish. A pleasantly refreshing summer beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gravity, Derby Summer BF 2011. Pale gold with a loose rim of suds.
Lightly buttered corn snack aroma, some gentle pine. Simplistic and lemony with a Wotsit dunked in seawater and Alka Seltzer finish. Dunk of card. Almost decent. Just a crushing comedown after the Fyne Jarl.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Egham United Services Club Beer Festival on 19 August 2010. Pale gold/straw in colour. Loose white head. Lively condition. There’s a whiff of sulphur in the aroma. Clean and fresh on the palate with plenty of citrus, moderate floral notes and a dash of bitterness. The sulphur on the nose persists as a faint tang in the flavour but isn’t disagreeably intrusive. Light but brisk mouthfeel makes for a refreshing pint (or half in this case).

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled cask at the Man of Kent in Rochester. Pale gold with a thin white head. Thin malt base but full of fresh bitter hops. Nothing out of the ordinary but a competently brewed session ale.
