2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. The latest in a seemingly endless procession of golden ales at this festival. Nothing particular in this one to distinguish it from the opposition. Gold with some haze. Lightly fruity. Clean enough. Respectable but could use some more hop bite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: cask at the Market (no) Porter.
Aroma is very mineral but the hops are pretty decent. Very pale gold colour with a thin white head. Good earthy but pale malt flavour, enjoyable bright hoppage and sadly, a faint meaty note. Solid lightly bitter finish. Not bad.
