Cask, gravity, Merton Summer Beer Festival 16-07-10 Pours warm gold with white head. Aroma is quite citrussy with grapefruit showing and some soft overipe exotic fruit also there. The flavour was a bit more of a wakener for the mouth citrus flying about but there was a good malty backbone and also the more tropical notes in the aroma were trying to come through. Fine stuff but wish I could have sat and consumed a little more leisurely. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton. Bright gold with a collapsing white lid. Mature cheddar, orange and overripe melon aroma. Orange and almond; softening cashew-accented maltiness. Sadlerís donít really do hoppy and I canít pick out any US hops here (contains Chinook according to the pump clip). Dull.

Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester. A blonde beer with a loose white head Sharp citrus notes throughout with grapefruit notes in the aroma. Too sharp in the mouth really although the craft work is good. Astringent pear like flavours. Think this needs something to cut through the Citra.
