Cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford, England.
Clear pale golden colour with almost no head.

Very summery I have to admit.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford during the RB pub crawl.
Nice gold colour with a decent white head and pretty good condition. Straight forward dusty and citric hoppage with some soapy notes and a pleasing bitter and floral finish. Quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford, on Ratebeer Oxford Day ’08. SilkTork asked them if this was a rebadge of another White Horse Beer and was told it wasn’t. I wondered whether it might be Village Idiot, another 4.1% golden ale, however I’m fairly certain it isn’t, as it’s less bitter. Soapy hop aroma, sweet taste and quite low bitterness. Not bad.

Cask conditioned at Turf Tavern, Oxford on the Ratebeerian day around Oxford 09-02-08 Poured light-mid golden with slim white head, sweet flurry comes through first of all, quite fresh tasting but the bitterness clings along with some honey, nice good looking clear beer with hoppy nose.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at...well, not surprisingly, the Turf Tavern. Pale gold, sticky just off-white head. Orange and menthol aroma, touch of mint. Soft minty bitterness, light body, some pineapple esters. Solid but also not one of White Horse’s best. I also feel like I’ve had this in better shape than it was at this particular serving. A nice toasty quality that is sometimes present seems strangely absent.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Easy lemony, citrusy pale ale. Bright grapefruit type flavour with a bittersweet finish. Nice easy drinking without getting too exciting. Reasonable beer.
