3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at The Punch Bowl in York. Pours light translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is too faint for me. Med body. Flavor is a little like cooked barley with some spicy hop. Very different in a noticeable way. Good session ale. I’m starting to really like it.

Cask at the William Webb Ellis, Twickenham, 07/04/13.
Clear pale golden with a decent white cap. Good lacing ensues.
