Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. Good, crisp biscuity malts at the start followed by a dry hoppy, slightly perfumed but fruity hop flavour. Some lemon, some orange notes, nicely fresh. Pretty decent.

Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Honey coloured ale with a decent head. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, fruity, rich and delicious. This has a citrus tang with lasting bitterness. Thick feel. Very nice ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, BBE 08/12, label stamped G1167/8 1137 at tasting on 20 January 2013. Not sure where this one came from. Clean gold. Quite crisp. Tasty, fresh character throughout with some zingy citrus. Good and dry. More depth to the flavour than the aroma. Not a huge amount to talk about but it does its job rather well, especially considering it was some months past its best before date.

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.

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...
