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.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Sept, 2003 <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/14/146 & Thistle - The Gravesend Lunchtime Stroll Very pale yellow Golden Summer Ale. The malt is rather blurred and muggy, clinging unpleasantly and spoiling the citric tang which vanishes too quickly to be replaced in the finish by the greasy malt. Not a great success. Rancid bacon aroma. [1.8]

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours semi-clear yellow with a strong, foamy white head. Mostly hoppy aroma of straw and light cereal. Fairly sweet with some easy bread and straw, hay bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, earth and straw hop finish, with some modest malty sweetness. Nothing wrong here.
