3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms, Putney, Suffolk & Norfolk Beer Festival on 22 September 2010. Copper colour. Some resinous hop notes on the nose. Firm juicy hop flavour. Not particularly fresh hop forward but quite hoppy overall. Pretty decent. Assumed at the time this was a one-off but it seems they have brought it out again since.

Cask at The Jerusalem Tavern, London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Fairly mild character overall. Very subtle grass, light sweetness, faint wood. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Lightly sugary finish, faint toast, faint grass. Easy to drink but lacks any kind of depth.

Cask at the Bricklayers Arms Norfolk & Suffolk festival, 22nd Sept 2010. Lovely russet colour, no head. Brilliant palate for 3.7% - surprisingly full bodied. Crystal malt, toffee taste. Delayed hop hit at the finish. Nose has some unpleasant notes but overall a great session bitter.
