2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in April 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head and poor lacing. Faint note of fresh peaches in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base rather thin on the ground in this but fruit does come through with juicy mangoes and syrupy peaches. Hop resins give a short bitter aftertaste, short in intensity. Finish is bitter sweet with tart fruit notes and dry. An ok session ale and worth trying.

[Cask at Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading] Golden-amber with a moderate off-white head and a light sparkle. Light caramel balanced against a mild bitterness, a little straw, a hint of lemon and a touch of roasty malt. Light throughout in fact, but somehow still a charming little well-balanced refresher that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazed gold with slight head. A light mild, hmmm, not sure, thin, slightly astringent fruitiness, malty, I kept thinking, so what? Chugged my way through it, never did me any harm.
