A Mes rate: Bottle at the Jerusalem Tavern.
Lovely clean golden brown with a very well behaved creamy head. Creamy vanilla aroma with light grapefruit and tobacco. Lovely hops and a hint of malt. Really nice hoppage in the flavour with plenty more tobacco and a very good nutty malt base. Lovely grapefruit hop finish. Balance is pretty damn good. Nice bite at the sides of the palate from the grapefruit. Interesting and plenty of character. Just the right amount of body. Jolly good stuff.

Orangey gold body with a very short head. Nice drinkable grapefruit bitterness in the taste but a bit thin, nose is of sweet citrus. Just enough malts to help balance it out.

Dark gold with a large white head. Citrus hop aroma. Taste has a little biscuity malt, but the sharp hoppiness is the dominant feature.

Cask at Jerusalem Tavern. Golden; nice hoppiness not just in aroma and bitterness but even more in the taste, with the dry edge of a Burton pale ale.
Also the bottles version was good, with an even sharper hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s a nice golden ale with a good head. The aroma is fruity with notes of malt, and so is the flavour. It has a nice full body, intensity and a nice bitterness. IMO it’s one of the really nice ones from St. Peter’s.

(Cask at Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon, London, 23 Nov) Amber colour with a short white head. Fruity nose with grapefruit and earthy hops. Fruity taste with grapefruit and lots of earthy hops in the bitter finish. Rather one dimensional but with a lovely hop aroma. Enough malt to give it a nice balance.
