4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at CBC, Covent Garden on 25th September 2016. Clear amber with lasting off-white foam. Intense nutty aroma with almond and hazelnut. Juicy berry fruits in-mouth with rich and intense nuttiness- hazelnut. A hint of ginger. A lush blend of tangy fruits and nutty malts dominate the finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a fair amount of body. Superb!

OK. We’re all a bit craft beer right now. Sometimes you just need to go old school. Pint at the Cask and Barrel. Pours golden/amber with generous creamy head Smells of caramel and malt, then on the taste is nicely bitter, hints of toffee and lime. Almost IPA-ish, but at base, a bloody drinkable bitter/ale. Bravo. Sessionable to the max.

Purchased from a major supermarket chain mainly cause I hadn’t tried it. Personally I think it is not a bad example of what a golden ale should be like.
Great mouth feel and depth of flavour lingering in my mouth for ages.
