2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden with fairly proportionate head. The nose has sweet egg and lemon grass. The taste has coconut and nutmeg. The palate is medium bodied and structured with a fresh finish. While not world beating this beer definitely is of an individual personality.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (gravity) - The Bree Louise, Euston, London. Small & fading creamy white head on a clear golden yellow body. An earthy, lightly spicy gingery aroma at the fore. Quite a heady herbal & gingery citrus flavour profile with an OK pithy lemon bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body, soft & smooth mouthfeel, light & short finish. A quaffable & not overpowering ginger presence throughout but not generally of a style that scores big for me.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the newly opened Craft beer co in London. Hazy yellow straw appearence. Interesting aroma slightly citrus earthy. The flavour is adjunct forward with the lime leaves for me being the stand out flavour. I did not pick out the lemongrass. The hop character of this reminded me of the sorachi ace single hop beer ive had, although Iím not sure which hops they used. This beer was very refreshing and sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
cask. Marble Arch. Manchester

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 iím 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 iíd like it better after trying it a couple more times. Nice on a hot summers day.
