3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Trust Tring to make a summer ale this good. Toasty syrupy golden colour. Aroma is like a labyrinth of hops. Strong, bitter, hoppy taste fading first to sweet butterscotch, then to a sharp twang. Full mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Row Barge, Guildford. Poured light amber with a minimal head and lacing that stuck to the glass forever! Not much of an aroma, but quite a bitter, refreshing taste, ideal for the summer. It tasted fine whether cold or when it eventually warmed. I can't see it winning too many awards but it was great to taste and I'd drink it again!
