Cask conditioned at The Rose & Crown, Charlbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. There is a sharpish, quite a mineral character to this from the off. Hints of saltines then a drying bitterness. It’s fine.

/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Cereal aroma. Flavours of marmalade, blue fruits, and farmyard. Light bodied, slightly creamy texture. Gentle carbonation, moderately bitter finish. A bit of complexity raises this above more run of the mill blond ales.

jmgreenuk (7430) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 2, 2013
Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a very slightly hazy light straw colour with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is weak hoppy with a bit of barnyard in there too. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with some nice grassy nettle hoppiness and some barnyard malt. Served on the cool side this is a super refreshing summer ale. The cask had only just been put on so I drank it nice and fresh which makes a difference. This beer deserves a better rating.
