Cask handpump at The Bricklayers, Colchester. Light golden colour, slightly off white head. Citrusy, very smooth and easy drinking. Palate probably the high point. Overall didn’t really enjoy this much - I recall having enjoyed it more bottled before, which is unusual.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Cask version - superbly smooth golden ale, very nice in the palate, it matters little that the aroma and taste is low.

As Joseph Stalin once said, "Once the boy is labelled a diver, there’s little to be done". I’d go one further and shoot the ignorant peasants but Joey always was a moderate sort and from him we must learn.

Pint in the Almanack, Leicester. Tasted pretty damn good. Bitter and hoppy but perhaps not quite deserving of midlands best beer?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Beautiful hazy gold with big, lasting white head and plenty of thick lacing. Aroma is citrus (grapefruit especially), touch of tangerine, lovely pale malts too. Taste is exactly as you'd want a session golden ale to be - beautiful pale malt character - full of biscuity notes, grapefruit, lemon, grassy hop notes, touch of spice. Mouthfeel medium/light. Aftertaste brief but with a lovely tingle of citrus zest. You could literally drink this from dawn to dusk. And then session on it throughout the night as well. Delicious.
