3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Evening session at GBBF ’11 while listen to The Chris Jagger Band at the main stage. One-third pint, hand pulled cask, at The Nightingale Bar. Crystal clear amber, shiny surface. Citrus fruits to the nose. Bitter hoppy fruits in flavour that lingers for quite a while. Sweet malty backbone, however, mostly bitter throughout. Medium bodied. Above par for the British ales at the festival (London, 03.08.2011).

Cask, pours gold with thin lacy head. Aroma of citrus and herby hops and sweetness, creamy and rich on the palate, rapidly drying and with notes of peach, honey and vanilla. Long honey-bitter finish. Like a Tripel with attitude.

Handpull @ ’Sporks, Crosse Keys. Pale amber with a thin white head. Extremely sweet malty nose with a little citrus hop beneath. Offensively sweet and cloying but has a nice bitter finish. Way too sweet for my taste, I couldn’t even finish a half.
