3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Cock Tavern, Hackney, London on 20th July 2012. Amber with thin film head disappearing quickly. Rich fruity aroma and citric flavours in-mouth; notes of cooked veg and mild spices. Fruity, hoppy and tangy finish. Zingy mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Coach and Horses Dronfield - a special summer ale that was a bit too light. A tropical fruit taste, and bitter afterwards, not one that lingers in the memory.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ The Cock Tavern. Apparently this ’Summer Ale’ was brewed to raise money for a youth housing charity. Nice. Light amber color with no head. The nose is light mango, salt, and lemon. US hoppiness. The taste is light raspberry, angel food cake, delicate apricot. Sweet. delicious melon. Light and very drinkable. Loads of flavor for just 3.9% ABV. Overall, quite nice!
