[Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Gold with a thick white head and a moderate fizz. Flavour of lemon and grass with a little honey. It may be a little watery, but a pleasing light bitterness to finish makes this a good refreshing summer session beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, William Rufus Carlisle. Not quite the ’stunning fruit aromas & flavours’ that are described, but a pleasant enough lemon & biscuit aroma & flavour with also a whiff of Burton sulphur. Soft, clean palate with a short & slightly thin finish. More biscuity malt in the aftertaste but not memorable.
