3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Cask at Cricketers Arms, Bedford. Clear mid- to dark golden. Sufficient white head. Faint aroma: vinous and grassy. Full sweet taste with bitter twinges. Hop character dominates. Lingering sour-bitter finish is only downside. Tring do not do bad beers, and this is a very good staple beer, belying its low strength with vibrant personality.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013.
Nice clean amber body, off-white blanket of foam on top.
Semi-sweet malty molasses, floral hints with a mild citrusy feel in both the nose and taste. Good balance of flavours with the malts just about winning the overall taste stakes giving the beer a slightly sweeter lean than a hop bitterness.
I liked it, and when you consider the alcohol content is only 3.6% ABV the brewer has got a lot of flavours and character into the brew.
