3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned, Gravity dispensed at Harbury Beer Fest ’10. Pale gold with white head. Typical of Roosters, a little beer that punches above it’s weight in flavour terms. There is a thinness to it, but the grapefruit skin, tangy hop moving to dryness makes it a refreshing light beer. Good finish, lovely.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned Gravity Dispense Peterborough BF. A very light, almost anaemic coloured beer with a whitish coloured head. The aroma has nice citrus grapefruit notes. Nice and hoppy in the mouth with grapefruit again but also a bit of grass. Tasty but needs more body.

Pint on handpull at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London). Golden, with ligth fruit on the nose. Plenty of mouthfeel for just 3.7% - a good balance between the malt and fruity hops that works nicely.

<i>Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - The Masque Haunt, London</i>
Hazy deep blond color. It’s generously hopped with a fruity American hop, evident both in the aroma and flavor; the body is maybe too thin, with light toffee, but it has a high drinkability and freshness. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Keans Head, Nottingham. This is a gold beer with a slightly bubbly head. The American hops are evident in the citric aroma and the bitter wallop of the flavour. It would possibly benefit from being stronger as it could use more malt sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpump at The Dispensary, Liverpool, 29-11-08. Pours golden with a white med/slim head looks in really good nick. The aroma is fresh and with a good citrus and hoppy scent. Its initially a little bit thin but its clean hoppy and with a gentle fruitiness it starts to win you over. A good beer that I would be happy to session on but maybe a little bit thin overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handpulled cask at JDW Rayners Lane. Gold with a good white head. Fine aroma of american hops and flavour followed this up. Grapefruit and lychees are present in a delightful combination of citric notes. Very impressive for a low gravity beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Spoons, Milton Keynes under the badge of Outlaw Wrangler. Gold with a white head. Big floral hop aroma. Citric taste, rather strong and dominant with some soapiness. Mid bitter finish. Devoid of subtlety, but full of flavour.

Half pint from gravicask at London drinker BF 08 (thanks to Stonch). Fragile white head resting on an amber coloured body. Fresh fruity aroma. Dry hopped profile lingering into a nice bitter ending. Good mouthfeel for its low alcohol strength (evening session, 13.03.2008).
