2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate: Pint at the JDW at Liverpool Street. Sweet grapes aroma. Crappy lifeless appearance. Tastes very much like one of my mums white wine and sodas with some extra grapefruit added. Bitter finish. Pretty poor.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap in Weatherspoons, Cambridge. Cloudy yellow with slight head. Musty, Yeasty honey aroma. Sweet honey flavour but flat, no character. Overall the beer had a good taste but I feel the beer was not looked after in the pub. I am confident this beer is better in the bottle or from a decent pub.

golden coloured quite pale in colour and a very light hue. Pleasant on the nose and tongue with quite a pleasant taste and aroma. The same colour as a lager, but with far more taste than a cheap beer such as a lager like carling.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A golden straw coloured beer with a thick, creamy white head. The nose is light and slightly yeasty at first, but then the floral hoppiness comes through with a vengeance! This is then accompanied by a sweet fruitiness similar to that of peaches. The taste is light and bitter with the dry, floral hoppiness being the predominant flavour. As in the aroma, there is a hint of peach fruitiness towards the end. The finish is light and bitter. (Draught - Lloyd’s Bar @ The Globe, King’s Lynn).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint pulled at The Railway in Putney (London), poured a lively white and then settled to a very clear pale straw with a good thick white head. A sharp tangy hoppiness in the aroma with hints of peachy fruits. Subtle citrus fruits in the flavour with a dry bitterness all the way through the mouth. There was also an unfortunately hoppy tanginess which I suspect is because of the lack of quality control at my local JDW.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thought It was going to be creamy or at least blonde, and it was like orange, like a medium dark bitter. Perhaps something changed but it was no clear at all.

Cask in a Wetherspoon. This is becoming very popular. Good sharp citric bite and a lasting honeyed tickling swallow.
