2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Harp, London. Pours a clear, light gold with a modest white head. Light malt aroma with sour fruit notes. More sourness in the flavor, along with subtle sweetness and some earthy bitterness. Light bodied with low carbonation. Has an odd, sweet and sour finish. This beer must have been off.

(cask @ The Fox , Hanwell). This was a bit lagery in texture but I was sure it was ’top fermented’ through out & one of those Blonde ales that dress as lagers. Fruity, spicy hop bitterness..minty flowers..dry ,then lighly bready ..some tofffee .

Nice dry hoppy nose with malty undertones. Good solid malty bite, well balanced sweet and bitter, hints of orange, maybe nuts too. A lovely golden ale though perhaps more Belgian than Bavarian!

Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival, April 2006. Golden amber coloured. Nicely defined, flowery hop aroma. Good smack of resinous, oily, spicy hops on the palate. Clean, sharp finish. Not sure about the German style, but a quite impressive hoppy beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Reading BF. A copper coloured beer with good citrus coloured hop in the aroma. The taste has fantastic hop notes and great depth. Probably the tastiest English beer of the day. As Joeh says: not German in any way. A very good bitter.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 06. I am sure that they were trying to make something in this style, but missed by quite a long way. Having said that though, this isn’t a bad beer. Amber, bubbly off white head. Herby hop aroma.. Soft and cold in the mouth with some toffee. I quite like the harsh finish which has more toffee
