2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Mid gold. Boring aroma, just a few hops. Nice mouthfeel, but not much flavour. A few minerals in the finish, which spoils its hoppiness a bit. A blandish beer.

One of my favourite session beers. A great golden ale with a refreshing hoppy aroma. Great from the bottle too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle best before end of Aug 09, drank late July 09. The cut price store near my house still turns up some weird beers, like this, but normally only once, so if miss um, you miss um for ever! Poured into a vase shaped ’Old Speckled Hen’ branded pint glass.
Slight chill haze type look to it, hope I didn’t store it too cold before opening. The colour was a dirty orange or a dull old gold. There is some wheat in the brew, with the malted barley, which might explain the cloudiness. On top sat an off-white creamy head.
Sweet Pea and hoppy aroma (Fuggles are used), almost like a summer flowergarden fragrance, but without the hay fever sneezing fear.
A fairly rough taste and feel, almost ginger beer harsh at first. A grapefruity/citrusy flavour takes over after the initial shock of the rugged, turbulent first sips. The aroma is at total odds to the taste, both however are fine in their own right.
Interesting and very enjoyable, glad I found it in my cheapo store down the road.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clearest pale yellow body, almost headless. Very mellow flavoured. Light floral hops are paired with grainy and kinda vegetal malts. Unclean, grainy-astringent and herbal finish that persists. Unenjoyable as is the case with most Welsh beers… but their ciders are spectacular.
