3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet pink grapefruit note in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with fruity zesty notes of fresh pink grapefruit and creamy lychees. Wheaty cereal note evident in the dusty floral flavours present in the dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with sweet juicy fruit flavours. A decent session Golden Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. First & best of the lot I had here. Poured a bright yellow with a small though lasting, creamy white head leaving a uniform lacing. Toasty malt, lemon & floral hop aromas, some nuttiness at the back. Zesty lemon, grassy, bit of toastiness and decent, mild grapefuit character. Almonds in the aftertaste following a lingering, dry bitterness. Soft, low carbonation, light-medium body with a good length finish.
