Lovely tasting beer with a good head. Had it yesterday so can't remember too much though!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned handpump Lyric London 30/05/13. A yellow blonde beer with a white bubbly head. An oddity for sure. Coriander, lemongrass and a little heat. The spicing is OK but it just all seems a very unnecessary experiment of a beer. I’d rather drink a Belgian Wit which this is just about hinting at I reckon.

Served on cask, poured into a half pint glass in a pub in pontypridd.
Pours a clear golden colour with little head.
Smells quite fresh, oily and hoppy.
Tastes quite tangy and hoppy, very different, and i’m not sure i like it. Quite pale ale tasting, with odd twinges that must be the thai elements (lemongrass etc).
Overall not a bad beer, i think i’d like it better after trying it a couple more times. Nice on a hot summers day.

another fruity affair from Melissa Cole. this one is a bit strange but ultimately tasty. golden straw pour with tight white head. aroma is an intoxicating mix of ginger & lemongrass. very refreshing as the aromas multiply and the light bitterness tickles the tonsils.
one pint was enough, probably better with food!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light and crisp. Light soapy foam. Almost no aroma with the exception of a slight bit of pine. Taste is of orange, veggies, citrus, and soap. Really a unique flavor. Not bad despite the soapiness. Some floral effervescence. Tried at the Sheep’s Heid Inn outside Edinburgh in 2012.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Diddley ? Selecta ? Pallid gold with a meek white head. Citrusy nose. Similar flavour with spice and lemongrass notes leading to some hop bitterness towards the finish. Seemed a bit thin overall. Unusual though, and top marks for trying to be different and all that but not really feeling this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask in Dog & Duck. Colour is pale yellow. Nose is coriander, lemongrass, bit of curry, touch of meatiness. Taste is a light beer, but with lemongrass, coriander and curry notes. Hints of green curry. Not really working for me but interesting.
