Cask (Penderels Oak JDW, Holborn) - Golden in colour. Lemon and hints of grapefruit in the aroma. Grapefruit, lemon zest and some slightly grainy and biscuity notes. Tasty, easy to drink and a good advert for Kazbek hops. Am curious to see more of what this hop has to offer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask half-pint at The Euston Tap on 3rd Aug 2016. Golden pour, white crown. Fairly light malty lead in the aroma, caramel biscuits came to mind. Taste more fruity, but still with a mildly malty front. The finish became bitter, as the hops came to the fore; decent session beer with subtle flavours to be found if you wish to delve deep enough.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handpull pint at the Maypole, Cambridge. Mid- to dark gold, very nearly clear. It’s got a milky ring of white head and loads of uneven foamy lacing. Light, almost nondeScript, lemony bouquet with some sea salt. Taste is sweet with fruity hard citrus tartness. Some salt mixes into the sweet/sour finish. Nicely carbonated for a cask ale. Reasonable. Wouldn’t have another.

Half-pint, fresh from cask at The Beehive in Tottenham, watching the near-by match between Tottenham and Manchester United on big screen TV. A decent white head covering a misty golden body. Solid lacework. Peachy aroma. Hay, lemon and peachy flavours with a short-lived bitter support to the ending. Natural soft carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink (London 10.04.2016).
