A beautiful sunny afternoon on Friday 7th September 2012 saw my father and I join in R.A.T.2012 (Rail Ale Trail part 2). Split between three bars along the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury railway line: they had over 50 different beers to try: this was one of them. Half-pint, gravity fed in the fest tent behind ‘The Odfellows’ in Shifnal. Light amber, golden brown, you choose: a white head tried to sit on top, but failed to stay around too long. Not too sure how this became CAMRA Champion Beer a few years back as it wasn’t any better than other beers on the day I tried it. Nice blend of flavours with the hops foremost in the smell and taste stakes. Well balanced and a pleasant enough session beer but nothing to set it apart from the rest of the field.

Schön bernsteinfarben im Glas, angenehm malziger Aroma. Im Trunk kaum bis keine Kohlensäure, sehr schöne, bitter-malzige Trockenheit, bitter auch im Abgang, leichte Süße. So muss ein Bitter schmecken - und dabei wenig Prozente.

Yup citrus and floral.Reminds me of cascade in american beers. Light as expected. Not the worst. Refreshing and sessionable at strength

Pours dark amber and a little flat out of a bottle. A winter warmer - Not overly hoppy but overpowering bitter dry finish for a low abv session ale.

Fast settling, minimal head. Flowery scent with light taste. Palate evolves with malty & nutty flavours. Very drinkable when well kept.

Decent drink. Aroma a little faint. Appearance golden brown with thin head. Taste bready becomes more bitter and citrus as the pint goes down. A little too bitter on palate for my taste. Overall better than 10 .

Cask. Clear golden with a small white head. Bready, herbal hops, dry flowers, hay. Light/medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Light dry and fairly long hoppy finish. Nothing wrong with this.

Cask at JDW, Streatham Hill. Pours amber with a white head. Light caramel and light grass aroma. Light body, light carbonation. Grassy with lemon and a light herbiness. Quite fresh and clean. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
