3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Nut Tree, Murcott, Oxon 02-04-09 Pours golden with small white head, good clarity. Crisp and with a good bitter hoppiness but this is also quite dry and fairly malty some sweetness hangs around but even though its doesn’t come across as a bitter beer its surprising how long that bitterness stays for. Decent beer and glad that I’ve finally found it, in my local of all places. Following a conversation with Ian Mackey at Vale I have a feeling that the recipe for this may have been tweaked recently, though I may be getting that confused with another one of their beers.

Cask conditioned handpump Racehorse Northampton. A bright gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A sessionable beer with a straightforward hop bill. Bits of citrus in there and it’s easy to drink. A little safe though.

Cask at the Lamb & Flag, Oxford on 29th April 2009. Hoppy and packed with flavour, lingering fruit and hop notes intertwining in a deliciously spectral chord of flavour. Worth pausing between sips to experience the long and satisfying finish

Cask at the Whey Pat Ale Festival, St Andrews. Nose is hoppy and citrus with a bit of fustiness in the nose. Mouth continues down a similar vein, with quite a crisp bite of hops at the end with a touch of spice. OK.

JDW, Maidstone. A beautifully fresh and well balanced Golden Ale with an interesting and sharp cats’ pee aroma. Soft juice moves into a grapefruit finish. Cuts cleanly through the thirst with a vanilla feel in the middle before the woody citric finish. Glorious!
