2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 Cask conditioned @ JDW.
Head is a wisp of unappetising bubbles such as might be found on still water near a wier. Base of plain malt with herbal hops and faint citric fruitiness. Bittersweet body with a hint of sourness. Seems like it has the potential to be quite good but was in poor condition. (2.9)
Re-Rate. Pale with thick creamy head. tropical fruit aroma. Quite sweet almost cloying with ashy bitterness. Drinkable with a hint of solvent. I think my score was slightly generous first time round. (2.8)

Bottled. Blond with a soft white head. Crisp, citrus hop aroma. Clean hop lines the transfer from hop oil consistency to a dry hop finish. Very attractive pale ale.

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.

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.
