Pours translucent golden, no head to speak of, aroma not much, slight floral honey hints, taste is malty sweet with a surprisingly strong bitter finish. Decent aftertaste

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at sraf. Golden with a short lived little white head. Bit of a pissy aroma, lemon zest, slight must. Taste is zesty, lemon, some caramel. Very thin and watery, completely flat. Not for me, possibly a good alternative to drinking water

Cask handpull at SRAF 2012. Pale yellow golden colour, thick white head. Soft hoppy nose, bit soapy, light lemon, touch of bready malt. Soft, juicy lemon and pine with a nice dry bready malt backbone. Nice refreshing bitter linger. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Cask And Barrel Broughton St. A golden session ale which take a while to settle. When it does, it looks very good. Well hopped and quite light. I feel that Stewart probably achieved exactly what they wanted to with this one. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at The Standing Order. Clear as a bell. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. A citrusy aroma of lemon and grapefruit with caramel and yeast notes. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nicely bitter and dry to finish. Very sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Doublet. Hazy pale yellow colour, good head. Mild biscuit malt aroma. Light refreshing citrus fruit & biscuit flavour. Lemon aftertaste. Not sure why this has been listed as a mild ale. It is definitely a light golden ale.
