UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Bottle. Pretty sure it was pasteurised. The label makes no mention of it being bottle conditioned either. Thin white head which doesn’t last long, sparkling amber body. Aroma is not offensive, but it’s not great either. Grassy, lemony hops. That’s it. Nice astringency. Longish bitter finish. Too acidic. Not my cup of tea at all really. 5 3 7 3 10 Cask. The Last Drop Inn, York. Thin white head. Gold body. Lemony, orangey, peppery, spiciness, fruity, wheaty. Bitter. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. 6 3 7 3 12

500ml bottle from Tesco, Longton, Staffs. Slightly cloudy look with a decent head. High concentration of citrus flavours, very drinkable for a light summer ale although I do prefer more depth of flavour.

Cask, The Queen’s Head, Chelmsford. Very strong yeasty aroma, some banana in the malt, maybe a hint of toffee, creamy, oily, pinet, eldeflower, good bitterness, good balance, get past the massive yeast and you get a fine session ale. Interesting and good.

Cask at GBBF 2010. Pours with a cloudy straw body, very slight head, little retention. The aroma is full of fruit, slight hint of citrus, the taste is dry and fruity, again a slight hint of lemon or lime, all round a fruity and drinkable ale. Nice and refreshing beer

Aroma is fruity malt, copper, good sized tan head, bit of lace. Flavour is assertive malt, red plums, a pleasing woodiness. Ligh bodied, very nicely balanced, tangy from the fruit and wood. A unique beer, like the ship itself!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright yellow appearance with a creamy head which dissapates. Aroma grassy and slightly sweet. Taste is citrus and bitter with a grassy feel. Finish is bitter. Overall it’s a refreshing beer which is very summery and has a bite to it. Pretty good to drink indeed.
