3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 On cask at Cloisters. A pale straw colour with a thin white head. Quite sweet nose with yeast and caramel malt. Caramel, malty flavours also with some yeast. Subtle spicy hops that linger nicely. A nice beer but I prefer Tryst’s hoppier offerings. Dry hopped at the Stockbridge Tap Beer Festival, 2011. Aroma had a little pine which worked well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull, The Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield. Still orange-gold, slim white top. Lace freckles. Nice picture of a badger on the pump. Lime juice, dishcloth and mango aroma. Bright and dank with good resinous citrus, strange mango-mushroom earthiness. Total change of gear; might have slated it if I hadn’t had a mango yesterday. The line is that fine sometimes. Possibly in the top 10 beers of the day- that good.

Cask-conditioned at the Wellington, Birmingham 01/02/10. Golden in colour with a slight white head. Aroma of summer fruits and sweetish malts with a touch of hay. Flavour began with a touch of biscuit, some citrus hops and decent, bitter finish. Good.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle Conditioned: Heavily carbonated. Pale gold colour. Smells of straw and carbonation. Okay, I’m going to ignore the irritating carbonation that makes this taste like Miller Lite because I can tell there’s a better beer under there. There are hints of stawberry and melon with a subtle malt body. The hops (from what I can distinguish from the carbonic-acid) are of lemon and lime. My bet is that this would be 10 time better if it had come from a cask that had been open for a day or two.

Amazing little bottle conditioned winner here! Aroma is citrusy, grape fruit seriously peachy. Taste is down the same path, bitter dry, really hoppy though the pale malts do come through eventually.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale but very bitter too. Not exactly a blonde ale if you ask me. However this brewery has something special.
