2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Live@Market Tavern, Atherstone. Heavily sparklered Gillette-headed gold killing all but a faint whiff of buttery pinecone. Full and slick with a flabby, orange-accented blandness. Hints of cream, pastry and pine. Maize and biscuit afters. Soporific and sadly squeezed of all but the remotest trace of US character.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in March 1998. Cask, gravity dispense. Pale russet in colour with a thin loose white head. Slight flowery perfume noted in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with orange peel tones to the flavour. Citric hops compliment the malt well and give a citrusy fruit note to the aftertaste. Finish is quite dry with marmalade and gingernut biscuit notes. An ok session ESB and worth trying.
