2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask-conditioned at the Star, Talybont 07/09/10. Pale gold with a slight white head. Aroma dominated by the lemongrass, with a touch of sweetness and floral hop. Spicy flavour, with lots more lemongrass before a dry finish. A bit overpowering.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw golden body, no head. Thai-like spices and herbs to the nose. Rather unusual taste of rise, curry and ginger, and some earthy malts, too. Dry hoppy ending. Very unusual, indeed. Nice, if not a great favourite. Cask, half at The Rake, London 16.07.2010.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16th July 2010. On tap at the Rake (thanks to Mario for the info). Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, semi dry. Lovely fresh herbally lemon from the lemon grass is immediately striking. The galangal is there but subtle. As the beer draws to a slightly bitter hop (and semi dry) finish some lime blends in seamlessly. Aromatic tasty and refreshing beer. If it is done again I hope they up the galangal a little.
