2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sep 2012 and poured into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard in Oct 2011.
Looked fine, a good light/golden amber body with a thinish white crown of foaming bubbles on top.
The small was of floral hops and mixed fruits (apples and pears?).
The taste was mostly hops with a dryness from the first sip which lasted until the mouth was completely empty. Claims to be a summer drink, which I suppose it is, being light in colour and refreshing. Not a lot of flavours within it, a bit one dimensional with the hops dominating everything else that might have been in the brew.
OK, but not something I’d buy a crate of.

Cask at Pipe and Glass, South Dalton. Golden with a creamyish white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, a little caramel, faint fruitiness. After that, not a lot going off. Possibly getting to the end of the barrel? Ok.
