A bit too sweet and syrupy. Not much substance to it but a lovely golden honey appearance. Quite bitter aftertaste.

On gravity at the Beamish Hall Winter Festival. Golden with an off white head. Light spice with traditional english hop flavour. Nice enough, but not my sort of beer really.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draught at the Sun Inn, Dummer. An amber gold colour with very slight head. Some slight aroma of malts and grassy hops. The taste has mild malts and quite citrusy hops. Hints of lemon and grapefruit. Not bad for a summertime pint, but this sample verged on sourness and was quite astringent. I suspect that if it were kept better it would be much improved.
