From cask at Bow bar. Pours clear and somewhat pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light fruity hops. Starts sweet flavoured and descending into a nice fruity note. Vague malty note. Holds a more spiced flavour from the hops towards the finish. Ends medium dry yet also light fruity.

Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, herbal and grassy with mild grains. Flavour is very similar in a quite dusty way. Also rather flat as for carbonation. Failed second fermentation in the bottle?

harrisoni (13283) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2007
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Pale gold, thin white head. Nettly hoppy aroma. Some softness in mouth. Nettley hop finish. Bit like a gooseberry, new world Sauvignon Blanc. I like it. A bit spikey, and I really like it.

Cask at the Old Fountain. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Sweet nose, honey malts, light straw. Nice flavor, not too intense, some easy bitterness, hay and sweet, juicy citrus, some sugary malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, faint grass and straw, nice and light toasted bread and some residual sugars. Very pleasant.
