Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Leeds 15/04/13. A golden beer with a tight white head and lace. A pleasant citrussy hoppy aroma. Hops good in the mouth too. Lemony. A biscuity dryness stops it developing too much. Still very competent.

Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. This had quite a sweaty character to it, scented and quite thin. Some spruce like notes. Not to my taste.

Aroma: Grain, red apple and shortbread notes.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a medium off-white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation and lacing.
Taste: Pear, citrus and caramel. Grainy and earthy/grassy flavours. Light bitterness.
Palate: Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Simple, subtle flavours, Personally, it tastes a little too grainy for my liking, but this is a perfectly sessionable golden ale.
