Cask at the Coal Hole, Nicholsonís - Covent Garden, London. Honestly, this is a pretty mediocre golden ale. Some tangy lemon character, a bit of dried pale malts, perhaps some touches of cleaning agents. Maybe the beer was not in tip-top shape at ye olde Coal Hole, but as it was I was not impressed.

Hand-pulled half-pint in íChequersí Oxford during a pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13.
This is a subjective rate/review, canít be objective anymore with this type of UK beer.
Everything I dislike about some of the UK brewers currently: so many are producing citrus tasting, low alcohol light golden beers itís beyond a joke. This is typical of the style. The trouble is everybody else (well almost everybody) likes them. Rudgate are majoring on the popularity and bringing out about four differently named beers per month all of which are very, very samey in looks, aroma and taste.
I didnít buy this, it wasnít my round: the bloke that did got a bollicking off me, especially as he knew my thoughts on these beers!
I canít knock the looks to greatly, it was golden, bright and clear, almost lager like in fact, itís just the smell and flavour Iím fed up with.
