3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, from Oddbins Chiswick. ABV is 3.8%. BB date 29. April 2014. Golden colour, nearly clear. Low white head. Lovely citrussy aroma, no unfresh notes. The flavour has also distinct citrussy hops throughout, with a firm bitterness in the finish. Decent malts too, and the mouthfeel is very good for a 3.8% beer.

Cask at the Royal Standard, Beaconsfield. Very refreshing blonde beer with good flavour, unusual for this style of beer. Quite a bitter taste but nowhere near an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good beer from a good brewer. Not too strong on the hops (it’s not an IPA) but a notable orangey taste from the amarillo. Well done.
