3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand-pulled pint in the brewery after a tour around on 8th Feb 2014: one of three beers available in cask form on the day.
Golden to light amber body, clear and clean looking, on top a white covering of bubbles.
Hop lead in the nose, mild citrus front with floral finish.
The taste is also on the hoppy side, malty undertone, but the hops rule the flavours as in the aroma.
Medium bodied and obviously fresh, a very easy drinking beer with enough about it to please me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Birmingham Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is rich and fruity with malt yeast and liqourice. It reminds me of the Tooty Fruities I once had as a kid! The flavour is medium bitter with a medium bodied smooth malty palate and a short bitter finish. The last time I had this was at the brewery and itís as drinkable now as it was then!

Shared with Dom at Spoons. Best of the bunch? Not quite, but pleasant nevertheless (end of a sentence again). Some nice floral hops, a nice bit of drinking. Bish.

Cask at the brewery. Slight hazy golden pour with small white head. Good floral and grassy hop aroma. Good citra flavour. Easily drinkable and hard to resist the refills offered!

Cask, The Brown Lion, Brum, 05/02/12. Fresh hop aroma awash with botanicals, greenery, pineapple jelly. Solid, unobtrusive biscuit base wafted with floral, shebety hop. Aromatic tropical notes. Dusted orange gold wrapped with lace. Begs another. And then another. Yes please.

Cask conditioned at The Brown Lion, Hockley, Birmingham. Gold with white head. Straight into a floral fruitiness, I got rose petal and Turkish Delight. Sweetness throughout. I didnít really get this one that well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pulled at the Brown Lion, Birmingham. Dark gold, with a cream top. Yum. Fresh, juicy hops, which are redolent with tropical notes. Positively slooshes across the tongue, with a nice finish and great burps afterwards. Bravo. A marked improvement for TT.
