0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very cloudy, grey-ish color. No head. Like watered down oatmeal porridge. Tastes about the same, with horrible cheese notes, and a touch of hops. Mouth is thin, very watery. Didn’t like this at all.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy murky gold with an off-white, thin, lacy, hazy head. Smells of faint citrus, stale malt, straw and soap. Thin, light watered down body like most of Fiddlers drinks. No carbonation. Faint sweetness of malt with a lemon, grain bitter finish. Yeast taste lingers. It’s obviously kept in poor conditions as most of Fidder’s beers taste off. It’s not very enjoyable

Cask @ The Fiddler, half pint. Blonde. Soft citric hops in the aroma. Firm grassy citric hopbitter flavor. Biscuity notes, but with a firm bitter aftertaste that lasts. Low on carbon. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask at The Fiddler, Den Haag, 21 Feb 2013) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with biscuits, toast and hints of diacetyl. Fruity, malty taste with notes of peaches, bread, grass and a gentle citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. There are hints of diacetyl lurking in the background so I’m not so sure about this one. Drinkable, but hardly impressive.

Cask at the brewpub. Clear yellow to light golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, hayish, lightly grassy. Quite nice to start with after the tasting that took place last night. Low body, low carbonation.
