maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Chelmsford BF. A golden coloured beer with a nice citric hoppy aroma. The taste has good hoppiness as well, but it seemed a tad past its best and farty. Otherwise not bad but could be better.Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 3.0

Cask conditioned Chelmsford beer festival, 2006. Blonde. Hoppy aroma. Strong, sweet malt with a hoppy finish. A nice golden ale but a bit too much body for a summer day.
