2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask half-pint in the Three Fishes, Shrewsbury: 28th July 2016. Light, pale blonde, smooth white head. I noted a wheat and oatmeal sort of aroma and taste: but I had a niggle in my head about the true flavour. On returning to the bar and reading the pump clip I immediately recognised cucumber flavours within the beer: it does what it says on the pump clip. Not really my thing, but my fault for not reading the blurb at the point of dispense. Scored objectively.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Northern Craft Beers Festival at the Hawkshead Brewery. Straw coloured with a thin white head. Grassy citrus aroma. The taste has more grassy citrus with a slightly odd cucumber finish. A bit strange.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wish I had read the tasting notes first. Not a fan of cucumber.
Usually a great supporter of Thornbridge beers, but this one is a poor addition to their great range of beers.
Must remember to leave this one aside next time.

Cask tap east. Tastes like cucumber. Not as bad as it sounds but not exactly a gin and tonic. A curiosity. I won’t have another but perfectly doable.
