3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Red Squirrel 021012
Pale straw, crystal clear, frothy white head, not much lacing
Aroma - Sweet soft citrus hops, apricot, soft grapefruit, light pale malt background
Taste as aroma, quite sweet, light juicy pale malt, some sharp citrus, soft grapefruit hop with a touch of spicy hop in there
Palate - medium carb, thin body, little oily. Finish - bit dry, as main flavour, some lager spicy hop in the linger, rather thin
Overall - Comes across as a golden ale / lager hybrid. Not one of the best from Tempest but its OK

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale malt on this beer with a thin head. This beer seems dialled down a little with a light citrus aroma, and in the mouth a thin mouth feel with a little more of the fruit. Hides the booze quite well, though is a little dry towards the close. Easy drinking.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at Inn Deep, Glasgow] On cask at the launch of Inn Deep. Pours clear gold with a very sparse bubbly head, due to the low pressure of the new font (this was rectified for later pints). Slightly sweet, grassy aroma. Some fruit – quite vinous on the nose. Similar flavours – bitter and hoppy, with a dry finish
