minutemat (886) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Cask at Beacons Festival, Skipton. An ok session beer with some fruity bitterness & citrus hops but everything in very mild doses. Like all the beers at this festival was a bit flat, so would have to try in a proper pub to really appreciate.

Aroma - Very soft fruity sweet malt, light citrus hops, light nose
Taste of soft fruity malts, soft citrus, touch of lemon, light fruits, soft lemon, a bit dull
Palate - Medium body, fairly oily, light sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, soft, cleans off palate
Overall - Easy going, ok, bit bland to be honest. Maybe the condition is not right here - worth a re-rate
