3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 12th August 2014
GBBF Day 1. Cask. Hazy gold beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry and crisp. Fine carbonation. Good condition. Light floralness and light but spicy citrus. Underneath are light malts with a touch of toffee. Light dry crisp finish. Interesting! This is kina how I imagined a US Cask bitter would taste like. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask gravity at GBBF 2014. This was very interesting because I had this with an English friend who has been based in New York and he thought this was a fantastic beer. But for me it was just far too clean. Copper to chestnut brown colour, clear and a thin white head. Nose is earthy hop, toffee, toasty grain, slight ale fruitiness, minerally. Taste is light caramel, light ale fruity, earthy English hop. It’s got very clean lines. Very simple. At a festival with a dearth of English bitters and golden ales, some good, some bad, this just feels a little too plain and lacking bold fruit or flavours. Bit of dry hop on the finish.
