3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Dronfield. A really attractive bright gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma has lemony hops and a bit of toffee or caramel. The taste has good bitterness and again that hint of caramel. Good but lacking any wow factor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-08-02. Lightly hazy yellow with a small foamy white head. Flavour is mild, very light bitterness throughout, subtle mild fruit with whispers of citrus, hints at lemon. 6+ Aroma is a bit interesting, mild lemon, lightly yeasty, muted straw. 6+ Smooth average palate. Mild but super drinkable, this might score more highly on a day by itself rather than in comparison to its Thornbridge brethren. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Mes rate: Cask at the White Horse.
Considering this followed a cask Black Albert and a draught Gonzo anyone could be forgiven for not thinking too much of this but you know what, it’s pretty bloody good. A shining example of quality English brewing like most beers from this brewer. Aroma is full of massive peachy, grapefruit hops with some perfect sweetish biscuity malt waaay in the background. Slightly hazy gold appearance with a very thin off white head. Flavour is a superb balance of grassy and aromatic U.S. hops with some wonderful earthy English malt. Delicate yet fantastic floral and bitter hop finish. Four ratings... four 3.8’s. Can’t be bad.

(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 9 Aug 2008) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus (orange, grapefruit), apricots and a generous, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[3242-20100802] Cask. Odd herbal yeast and hops in the aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Herbal notes continue in the flavour with mild leafy hops. Medium body. Not as wonderful as hoped, a little disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Green Man, Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Pint. Everyone else watching Olympic cycling. Dark gold with a small white head. Citric hop aroma and some grassiness, with a buttery malt background. Sweet, oily malt taste. Mid to strong bitterness. Liked it. But, sorry, lads, I only rated it 3.6.
