Fairly simple bitter aroma. Smooth palate. May be simple, but is fresh and nice enough. Full, slightly sweet barley taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask - The Harp, Covent Garden, London. A copper coloured beer with a fine, bubbly beige head. Caramel malt sweetness, gently toasty with some mid fruits on the nose. Mid fruits again on the palate with a delicate bitterness. Much of muchness really. Never really left the starting blocks. Subtle hop note in the finish. Light to medium body, fair, crisp palate texture with a lightly tangy aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 20th September 2010. Orangey-amber - almost Lucozade colour - and a thin white, partial lacing foam head. Yeasty aroma, touch of cheesiness and a few light hops in the main kick. Then citric and rather fruity. Citric theme maintained in a medium-length finish on a zingy mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Old Fountain, Old Street, London, 3 aug 2010) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and grassy hops. Fruity, slightly malty nose with apricots, citrus, grainy malt and generous doses of grassy hops in the finish. Rather thin body, with some sweetness. A bit thin in the malt department, but nice and tasty hop character.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer. No head, no carbonation. Semi dry palate. Reasonably well balanced. Bitterish orange with a trace of apple. Finishes very dry. Nice enough flavour but too dry and too flat.
