1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Cask at the Flowerpot, Derby. 08-09-07 I don’t really know what was wrong with this, it poured fine, golden in colour and with small white head, good clarity, but tasted soapy and quite poor, I really should’ve taken this back but it was the end of the night, I’d had a rake of ale and my dad was threatning to go onto the Thomas Sykes next at 10%, poor beer to end what had been a great day of generally very good beers.

Really nice ale here. Aroma is citrusy and grassy. Taste is pale lager malts with a hint of sweetness, mandarin and lemon citrus flavours, dry bitter finish, i could drink a serious amount of this stuff.

Cask at Smithfield, Derby. Knockout. Lemon curd body, tight white head, really zippy lemons in the taste, almost fizzes on the tongue, certainly one of the best golden ale I’ve had this year.

Very pale gold colour - a bit anaemic looking. Aromatic - at first I thought there were Cascade or First Gold hops, but I see it uses German lager varieties. The flavours are citric and a little sharp, but the finish settles down to be clean, gentle and lasting. The body is a mite thin, but it makes a decent thirst quencher. I rather liked this. Cask (gravity), Thurrock Beer Festival.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask Conditioned at The Wilkes Head, Leek, Staffs. Pale yellow light ale with frothy head. A sharp resiny flavour, thin and acidic but with some floral hop, dry notes. Lemon peel, zest, too sharp really.
