3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Free Press, Cambridge. Tawny brown, clear with a small amount of clumpy white head. Caramel, orange peel and some spice in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with a bitter-sour bite at the end. Chalky texture. It’s not bad actually but fails to get me all that excited.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Manners, Bakewell. A clear amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, slight spicy orange, fruity malt and some yeast. Taste of fruity malt, subtle spicy orange, yeast, some mineral and caramel. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, citrus bitterness in the finish with some tartness. Quite a bit of mineral and tartness in this, thought it may of been the hops used but doesn’t taste quite right. Ok though.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Citrus is the overriding factor of this ale. It is drinkable and refreshing. Good colour but weak head. Not the best, but I would have another.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Manners, Bakewell.
Pours amber with a decent white finger head, looks good. Aromas of caramel and cream...quite faint really. Taste is a bit thin, but caramel and toffee come through, light floral hops in addition, made for a nice brew during the lunch hour! Perfect if you’re working afterwards!
