Pint at "meet the brewer" at the central in Gateshead. Golden ale with a thin white head fresh and fruity, with the currently fashionable grapefruit flavour. I particularly enjoyed that there is more of a malt balance to the bitterness than with a lot of blond ales.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy malt nose with just a bit of citrus. Pale gold colour with thin white head. Smooth medium texture. Light citrus start with a sweet grape center and sour hop finish. Transition is very well balanced and leaves the mouth just a little dry, thisty for more. Citrus is a little much.

Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Small & loose though lasting bubbly white head, clear golden body. Sherbet lemon hop, pale malt, some apple & lime aromas. On the tongue it’s similar again, dominated by a citrus bitterness. Some astringency & tang. Light to medium body, mostly soft on the palate with some carbonation & a medium length crisp hop finish.
