Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber/yellow, very clear. Faint scent of honey with a bit of orange and biscuit. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish, simple but clean and wonderfully refreshing. More than the sum of its parts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin tight creamy white head. Crisp sharp aroma of green apples. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit base with tart gooseberry fruit in evidence. Dry hop resins give a floral bite to the robust earthy aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with dry vinous oak cask notes with hints of marmalade in there. Reminded me of Inveralmond Ossian? A decent Amber Ale and well recommended.
