2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
December 2008: 500ml Brown bottle, well in date, poured into an English Pint Sleeved glass.
Very pale, almost Lager looking, the small white head adds to the illusion.
A mild wiff of citrus fruits hit the nose, grapefruit more than the sour lemons and lime fruits. Hops in the mix too.
The grapefruit in the aroma comes through into the taste as do the hops. Nothing strong or outstanding in the flavour stakes though.
A pleasant if unassuming Pale Ale, the hop and citrus fruit contents rule the brew without really making a statement, an average beer with an average score from me.

Boring pale ale. Doesn’t zing but isn’t rank - some kind of beer black hole

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned Handpump Malt Shovel Northampton. A bright gold coloured beer with a slurp of whitish head. A citrussy aroma and taste but it’s a bit harsh. I thought this had Amarillo but it states Cascade and Fuggles which is a strange combo indeed. has spicy edges to it. Fairly bitter. A bit disjointed.

500 ml bottle. From King’s Lynn, England.
Hazy pale yellow colour with small to average white head.
Banana sweetness, dry wheaty malt and some interesting dry fruitiness in aroma. Dry fruity hops in rather mild flavour. Drinkable.
