3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a fine white head, the aroma is pine, citrus and sweet malt. On the palate it is initially sweet with floral hops, then an astringent bitterness cuts through to give a crispness that balances the malt and results in a long dry-bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. At The Old Fountain. Clear light amber pour with a smallish off-white head. Simple yet deeply appealing aroma - fresh grassy/floral bitterness and very light, not too sweet golden ale maltiness. The taste delivered - refreshing, pungently bitter, but restrained and no alcohol character at all - a beer to drink multiple pints of on a warm day and people watch. Light, crisp, dry body, long floral finish, no aftertaste. A remarkably well-crafted beer, thanks for the "steer" Ang!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask @ The Fox in Twickenham
A honey looking beer with a thin white film of head. Aromas of waxy, green foliage abound, complimented in a way by light cereal and honey notes. Very metallic in the mouth and also very sweet the source of this is undeniably the malts. It has a good oily body to it. Drinkable with a reasonable balance of bitterness and sweetness though it is awfully bland. There is definitely something off putting here.
