It could be you know. ABL on the verge of great things. Splinter gig today kicked ass in a gentle folky kind of way. We jumped, they gave a standing ovation.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear golden a bit dark straw-colour with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet and a little faint with some fruits, hay, candy and citrus. Faint is also the flavour with more pale malt, hay and some hops. Has a slick and thin mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Easy-drinking and a bit boring.

Cask at the Trocadero, Birmingham. Rather good Golden. Thick and fluffy once dispensed into meinen trap. Very good sweetness; like a non cloying honeyed orangensaft.

Iím glad I bought this today... Iíd be glad to drink this on a daily basis but the price is a bit high in Vancouver ($6.50). Bitter enough and fairly drinkable. British beers are good...

500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Simple caramel aroma. Nutty papery body, some toffee. Finish dry. A bit boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow tasting, thanks to Chris, 20/01/13.
Hazed mid golden with a good sized white head that retains well.
Nose is light fruits, pale malt, orange peel, citrus.
Taste follows with a touch of herb and spice.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish.
Not bad !

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden ale with a slightly complex character. The aroma is citrus, fruity but slightly biscuity. The latter of these characters is again evident in its flavour but again its orange and citrus fruits are obvious. All this makes it very tasty. No head and looks a little flat.
