3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
15th September 2012: hand-pulled pint in ‘The White Lion’, Wellington, Shropshire.
Another golden ale with a citrusy hop front (the UK is awash with them this summer). The 4.5% ABV gives this one a bit more ‘umph’ than most and although I’m fed up with this style of beer in general I quite enjoyed this one.
Crisp, sharp and refreshing: with those citrus hops being prominent throughout, very little malt influence to be found in this dry finishing ale.

Cask @jdw bridge house, Belfast. Midblonde with smooth white foam and a lemon and crystal malt nose. Unfortunately tastes of chlorine...water treatment issue? Which detracts from the hops and leaves an acrid detergent taste in the finish.
