Hand pulled cask at the C&K, Pimlico. Gold with a healthy white head. Juicy sweet malt profile but balanced by a splendid citrus hop stash, with grapefruit predominating. Brilliant!

Cask, handpull, pubs all over Derby 2008. Also once traded under the name Belay Betty. Let’s look down the Thornbridge tick list and see how this marks up; aromatic hop - yes. Pure and not cloying fruits in aroma - yes (some grapefruit, some goozgog? Effortless balance - yes (sweet malts and mown grass). Superb after a pint - yes. Even better after five pints - damn right.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mid orange to yellow with a weak white head. Distinctly grapefruit hop aroma and a touch of rose petal. Dry taste, starting with a powerful zesty grapefruit hop flavour, slightly green and floral, rose petals again, then a smooth malty taste that calms the raging citrus flavours. Dry, zesty hop finish. Over hopped!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ The Wharf Winter Cask Ale Festival. Pours a golden yellow with a small white lace. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight tropical fruits, grassy notes and is fairly juicy with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the nose with nice juicy hop flavors, again orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight topical fruits and grassy notes with those sweet malt flavors. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice and sessionable APA.

Cask at The Victoria, Birmingham. Looks great, the best lacing you could wish for. Nothing noticeable about the aroma but a decent mix of maltiness and oats in the taste. Decent bitter finish without being dry. Smooth mouthfeel. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask pint at Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Light Amber pour. Orange, light caramel, and herbs on the nose. Pithy grapefruit comes alongside the orange in the taste - quite juicy initially but then overtaken by light caramel and woody malt notes and a bit of pine. Lingering earthy, herbal bitterness as well as residual pine flavour. Tasty stuff.

Cask at the Tollemache Inn, Grantham. Jaywick has a fresh, very fruity, delightful aroma and a golden body with a bubbly head. The flavours are citrus and tropical fruits with a biscuit malt backbone. Very good indeed.
