3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Winstons. Pours pale gold, light haze, thick white head. Good grapefruit aromas, light malt. Taste has good grapefruit bitterness. Light body, as you’d expect from the strength, but carries it well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Red Squirrel.
Appearance - golden with a nice head.
Nose - screaming citrus particularly grapefruit.
Taste - grapefruit confirmed with just a hint of pale malt in rhe background.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a long refreshing finish.
Overall - what a palate cleanser. That would take the taste of doner kebabs away.

Scotland: Thistly cross beer fest. Light and citrusy. Not anything worth seeking out.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a pale yellow ale with a fairly abundant white head. Aroma was a nice fresh citrus hops and taste had a mild sweet and fruit with hops in the background. Modest carbonation, all in I thought it a nice session ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned ale very nice to sup in the evening. Strong and excitable flavours. Clean palette and after taste. Slight cloudiness due to sediment but scored highly due to clean crisp taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. IMO this is the archetypal session ale. Easier to drink and more flavoursome than lager but better tasting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Simple citrus notes, pale golden yellow body, watery but steady head. Clean biscuit malt noteable before some very session-able springs of hop including a slightly weedy mouthfeel flipped by a clean, simple linger.
This is never going to be a world beater, but a consistently recommendable effort on cask as a few I turned off the Cobra and co. premium lagers that night found.
