3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts and peppery hops meld in this silky Bitter.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the amber-tinged golden.
-The hop character has green edges.
-Orange-y tea leaves are also shared in the aroma.
-The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, creating an elegant quencher of a body.
-The flavour profile is balanced.
On cask at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford.

Great swift half on a hot afternoon. Could very easily be a session beer. Lively, producing a smooth head, clean flavour, slightly floral and grassy.

On Tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden with a proportionate head. The nose has grapefruit and hay. The taste is more of the same. The palate is light to medium in structure and texture with a clean finish. Overall, a good easy quaffer!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Royal Blenheim, Oxford, England.
Deep golden colour with small white head.
Salty watery aroma. Flavour is very mild floral and fruity hoppy. Watery. I don’t know what’s wrong with this but it’s not the same nectar rated before. Watery and flavourless. Probably needs another go sometime.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden and bright, with a fine white head. Aroma is crisp and hoppy. Bitter and dry on the palate but with a firm underlying fruity malt. Dry bitter finish. An excellent session bitter, reminiscent of Young’s Ordinary when it was good.
