2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Wrekin, a local íreal aleí pub on 28th Feb 2014.
Golden brew with a good white head.
Decent enough blend: but a little too citrusy for my taste buds. Iím fed up with light coloured beers that smell and taste like toilet cleaner fluid.
OK more than interesting or different.
Body fine and itís not a bad beer, just not for me on a cold winters night.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London - shared with Jack. Pours clear amber with a fine, white cream head. Light bready malt nose. Sugary malt flavor, some bread. Lightly syrupy, but not to great detriment. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with further bready malts, mellow bitterness. Simple, fine.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Pembury Tavern. The pourís deep chestnut color with a small off-white head. The aromaís rich malts. Some wood, cherry jam, caramel, light spruce and general spices. The taste is more rich berries. Caramel-dipped wood. Spiced chocolate. Smooth body. Overall, not bad! My rating doesnít seem to reflect the general description of the beer. Maybe the Pembury mislabeled this...flagged for rerate.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A reasonable summer ale, low carbonation for a bottle conditioned beer, mild hoppy flavour drinking below its 5.5% ABV.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from alesbymail.com A light golden coloured pour with a small white head on top. Citrus fruit aroma. Tastes of citrus fruit, a little thin, slight sourness. No hops detected whatsoever. BBE Nov 2011 but it definitely tasted acidic.

(Cask at Southampton Arms) Even this is quite mild beer there was alcohol notes in the aroma. in addition to malts and bitterness there were light citric notes in the taste. Perhaps this was a bit too unbalanced for this kind of beer.
