2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump I think) at GBBF, day 5 on 5 August 2006. Bright golden colour. A little hop in the aroma - more earthy than fragrant. A rather undistinguished session bitter. Not much depth. Drinkable but entirely forgettable.

Light sweet flavor, simple bready sugars, a little hay. Light bodied with fine and very creamy carbonation. Fair condition. Mild bitterness to finish with some white bread, hay, faint crunchy leaves. Tasty, basic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Likeable beer with a restrained citrus aroma and quite complex flavour profile for a golden ale with a slight hint of honey being perhaps the most prominent. Probably a nice accompaniment to a warm summer’s day but it was cold and raining when I tried it...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating from 2010. Half in the Anchor Bleu. Colour is clear amber/golden, fresh white head. Nose is grainy, honey, biscuity and floral. Taste is sweet malty, honey, biscuit and floral hops. When it’s fresh this is a very nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handpull at The Bell (Cannon Street). Clear slightly amber gold with a small frothy-creamy off-white lasting head. Simple aroma -sweet heather and honey, dried grass. Taste follows, but thin, grassier and sweeter, a bit generic. Average body, airy, chewy with a sweet quick finish. Not horrible, just boring.

Cask at the Half Moon, Windlesham - 09/08/12.
Light orange with a small white head.
Light citrusy hop on the nose and a pinch of malt.
Similar taste to nose with a little biscuit.
Thin in body bitter dry mouth feel on the finish.
Drinkable, I prefer it to Doom Bar, but nothing exciting.

A bit like a golden ale, initial taste was quite sharp with some citrus following up, not bad

Cask at the Price Albert, celebrating a 6-2 victory over the Bank of Montreal. An orangey golden session beer, easy drinking with some slightly resin hop. Pleasant enough, although I find most Cornish beer a bit bland.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear straw in colour with a thin white head. Dry hoppy notes in the brief aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a fruity flavour of gooseberry and lime. Metallic tang to the aftertaste with hard water salts and hop resins combine to give a very tart bitter aftertaste. Finish is dry with bitter floral notes. A poor session bitter.
