Boring pale ale. Doesnít zing but isnít rank - some kind of beer black hole

Cask conditioned Handpump Malt Shovel Northampton. A bright gold coloured beer with a slurp of whitish head. A citrussy aroma and taste but itís 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.

Banana sweetness, dry wheaty malt and some interesting dry fruitiness in aroma. Dry fruity hops in rather mild flavour. Drinkable.

Cask, The Plough, Chelmsford, Nicholsonís Real Ale Festival
White lacing, bronze-golden colour, aroma is citrus, lemons, hey, moderately hoppy. Taste is oranges, mango, citrus, lots of oil and cream and really drinkable. Pleasant IPA. More hops though PLEASE. Can notice the Cascade but iím gasping for more.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus and bread. Tastes earthy with some grassy elements and a dry, peppery finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at Penny Blacks, Birmingham. Pale yellow, with lacing. Light, lemony golden. Some subtle citrus hop. Pleasant in some ways, though a little dishwatery and weak willed. Malt in the aftertaste. Generally drinkable, perhaps needed to be a bit colder.

Pale and nicely lively. Looks like a good íun. Nice lemony hops on the nose, crisp and slightly sweet malts in there too. Slightly green with tingly cereals. In the mouth a big wholesome cereal flavour quickly gives way to nice drying hops and a light maltiness. Leaves the tongue very dry but with a really tasty aftertaste of dusty straw and pine needles. A light carbonation and body make this quite drinkable. I wish it didnít dry the tongue quite so much.

Bottle Conditioned: Pale gold, with a thin white head. Very refreshing zesty flavour, loads of dry hoppiness, with a lemony aftertaste, with a touch of creaminess and quite a floral scent towards the end.
