2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Place: Arcadia, Headingley.
Served: Luke warm half pint from tap.
Colour is an attractive straw, resembled something that could refresh on a summers day.
Great creamy head retention all the way through.
The Bad: Weak on the palette, distinct lack of aroma throughout and nothing to scream about when discussing hops. Not big, bold or loud.
Overall: Not as dry as I was expecting after reading up on Roosters, will not be having it again. Certainly not a refreshing ale, not a session ale but I am sure it serves those that are not picky.

Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester 20/07/12. A golden beer with a whitish head and lace. Very very dry and biscuity. Lacking any pleasant hop flavours at all. A real struggle this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask, White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 23 July) Colour is yellow to orange with a frothy head. Nose is very fruity with a flowery hop character and lots of citrus (grapefruit, lemon peel). Same goes for the taste: fruity, with lemon and flowery hops. Starts sweet, turns drier in the hoppy finish. A bit one dimensional, but a nice, hoppy beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer #19 at Dartford Beer Festival with SilkTork and Duff. Amber colour. Pungent juicy hop aroma, with lemon zest elements, augured well for what was to come. Unfortunately, the palate was nowhere near as forceful and, though it was still a good beer, it did not quite live up to its initial promise. Just crisp and clean. Cask (gravity dispense).
