Cask, Derby BF 2006. Golden with a very fruity scent with touches of honey and caramel. Quite thick on the palate, sweetness hits you later. Dissappointing in the mouth due to the lack of aromas. Only a hint of honey and grapefruit here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Coors Visitor Centre (formerly known as the Bass Museum). This is a decidedly odd set-up these days. Although Interbrew bought the old Bass empire, they were required (because of competition law requirements) to sell part of it. This included the Bass brewery at Burton, which Coors bought. Although Bass was brewed there for a while, its now made elsewhere and production is mainly Coors brands. Which is a bit odd considering the museum focuses almost entirely on Bass and its history. Anyway, this beer was a very pale gold colour, slightly hazy and served rather too cold, so the aroma was initially muted. However, a quite pungent, resinous hop presence developed as it warmed. The flavour is less pungent but still markedly hoppy, with the emphasis on citrus. The finish is a tad soft, but overall its a pretty decent beer.
