3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Wild Swan (Shepherd Neame). Clear golden pour with a small white head which quickly disappears. Some light citrus on the nose with balanced biscuit and a touch of zest. Orange and lemon in the taste - citric fruits seem to be the focus, light biscuit, orange rind. Very easy going. Quite a decent mid

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Bishop’s Finger - Smithfield, London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a fine, creamy head. Light citrusy hops in the nose, fine biscuity pale malts. Light sweet flavor with mellow orange rind, other pithy citrus, restrained pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fair balance onthe finish, slight leafy bitterness, further dry citrus, touhes of dry, pale malte. Nothing that wrong here, although the character is on the wimpy side.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Kent. Awaited a bit more but got still a full bodied flower aromatic beer. Colour was a bit to clear amber but all around this is a well done beer.

On tap in Kent. Beer pours in deep golden brown with a light but steady head. Tastes mild of roses, straw and is quite bitter and dry. Not carbonated at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in the Bon Accord, Glasgow in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale tawny in colour with a thin white head. Lemon peel present in the short tart aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a juicy grapefruit flavour with lemon grass notes. Dry dusty bitterness floods into the aftertaste with floral zest. Finish is hoppy with a metallic tang strong in the palate. A poor session bitter and not for me.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had on tap in a Shepherd Neame pub in Canterbury. There are thousands of ’em.
I did not get on well with this at all. It looked slightly opaque in the glass and tasted overwhelmingly of vegetation. Not even any particular vegetable, which might have been interesting, just... leaves. It smelled like an elderly forest, in the worst possible way, and tasted dreadful. Avoid like the bloody plague.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I apparently liked this beer more than most. It was a very light, golden orange color with a minimal head that goes away over time leaving this ugly lilly pad looking bubbles that only a beer geek like you and I can appreciate. There is a light hoppy aroma.I liked it, the flavor was a little hoppy as well - very hoppy for a british bitter.

Quite bland. Hops dominate malt far too much and is over floral/earthy. Not a great bitter.
