3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask B.C."H.", bright foxy-amber beer. Very little nose, bit of honeysuckle and hops. Superb blend of fresh UK, yet citrussy hops, alternating with again excellent UK caramel malts - light and tasty! Light body, but nowhere empty. Quite slick, especially backthroat. Classy bitter, and a treat on cask!

Excellently hopped with a nice, crisp, bitterness. Good beer, could maybe be slightly better balanced.

Fra cask på Draft House, Tower Bridge 18 Mai 11. Gylden. OK kremaktig skum. Fruktig aroma. Smaken er aprikos og litt annen frukt. Tilløp til syrlig bitter ettersmak. Bra.

Cask conditioned in The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon. Hazed gold with white head. Orange hoppy aroma leading to a crisp fruity hoppy beer. Lots of fruitiness, apricot, passion fruit, oily hop notes on a slightly caramelised malt body that tasted a little powdery, probably due to the haze. This is a very pleasant beer in very pleasant surroundings.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2011. Poured with an initially large & lasting bubbly, fluffy beige head leaving a heavy lace atop a clear golden amber body. Definite pine and resinous aromas hit the nose at the fore with late developing tangerine & peach. Heavier on the malt side on the tongue, remaining still quite crisp & hoppy, zesty & bright, particularly late on but certainly richer in terms of caramel, toasted malt & mid fruits at first. Smooth, light carbonation, medium body, medium length bitterness with a lingering nutty aftertaste.
