500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear golden colour with fairly large white head. Aroma of fruity and biscuity malt. Flavour has same character with a light bitterness in the finish. Ok.

[Cask at the William Robert Loosley (JDW), Wycombe] Pale gold, moderate white head, slight fizz. Hay throughout, with a moderate English hop bitterness, a hint of lemon and a rather distressing aftertaste of bacon. Below par - I remain unconvinced by this brewery.

500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with an almost white head that leaves a little lace. Very little aroma but what there is is a little sweet with a grainy vibe with a hint of fruit. All of the same elements play out on the palate with a slightly sweet finish.

500ml bottle. Pretty clear in the glass and holds a level layer of white foam. Golden amber in colour. Sweet honey infused fruit aromas are appealling and there is a modest level of bitterness. Flavour is moderate with good mouthfeel and texture.

Cask handpul at Hope Spoons Reading. Clear pale gold thin white head. Some butter in this. Tastes quite fresh in mouth. Fairly light in all other flavours which accentuates the butter. Some hop sting on finish. Diacetyl on aroma. Not huge butter but its there and just doesnt go with the hops. Good condition though

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of a light beer, and nothing much else. Flavor of light malts and light floral hops. Not a bad beer, but really light and not a lot of flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle in a pint glass at home. Golden blonde clear beer with a light and fluffy head, but a bit fairy liquid looking. Nice strong fruity, hoppy aroma. A fruity but bitter and hoppy first taste. Its more than your average English bitter and its pretty good, more complex than many of its type.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a golden amber, with a small head, but shocking retention and no lace. Sweet malt notes abound on the nose, with burnt caramel and a hint of honey. There is a decent level of bitterness to start, with pine and pepper hops coming through strongly. More malt comes in towards the middle, and becomes quite fruity, before a very smooth honey finish. None of these flavours are particularly pronounced, however - it is a little lacking in flavour. It is also a tad too watery. This is certainly a long way from spectacular.
