3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@Home. Artificial aroma but not too bad. Surprising blond, white head, good lace. Sweetish, raspberry, light bitter. Quite balanced and not really artificial. Not bad actually.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Hit with a huge but almost artificial aroma of raspberries upon opening. Pours a promising pale gold colour with a very white heads that looks appetising but fades quickly. Taste is peculiar in that it reminded me of those drum-stick lolly sweets you can get with a slightly cloying aftertaste. Not entirely unpleasant but also not what I was hoping for, sadly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Thin white head which instantly dissipates. Crystal clear pale gold body. Aroma is of lots of fresh, ripe raspberries, with an undercurrent of honey and yoghurt. Very bitter from the fruit, with sweet undertones. Dry finish. Rather nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Cloisters. A blonde beer with a thin white head. Aroma of raspberry ripple ice-cream and caramel. Similar flavours, quite artificial, with caramel and a raspberry ice-cream chupachop quality. Mild carbonation and a little oily. Too artificial for me.

Cask at Cloisters. Golden with a very thin white head. Big raspberry nose. Immediate palate is of a standard cask gold ale. Subsides to a quite nice raspberry afterthought with a lingering tang. quite nice.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a very pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma was overwhelmingly of raspberries. Tasted of raspberries unsurprisingly, with a little hop.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at home ... lovely crisp golden yellow ... big bubbly white head ... lots of raspberry from even a distance ... soft fruit hop ... soft raspberry light bitterness... aroma and looks tops the beer its self, but the beer is decent if a little bitter and ligth metalicness

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Kiroswald Beer Fest. Extremely aromatic beer, strong fruit aroma from a good distance! Light golden appearance, sweetness blends in nicely with the bitterness of the beer, to make a really fresh-tasting summer beer that is all too easy to drink. Good balance and well-flavoured.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask handpull, The Craven Arms Inn, Appletreewick, North Yorkshire, 20/04/11. Innocuous pale ale looks with a low white head and ruff. Fake raspberry and pavlova aroma- 5. Raspberry sweet taste- all fakeness and no fruit with rescuing licks of bread and biscuit. Dire, comical, slightly poisonous- can’t believe how highly it’s scored by previous raters, but each to their own.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2010. Lovely aroma of fresh raspberry doesn’t continue into the flavour where the fruit and the golden ale do battle for sweetness and dryness at the same time.
