2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at White Star, Stoke. Golden with a perfect white head. Very little nose: a bit of hops and citrus. Taste is sweet and salty, with a bit of umami/sour on the way down. Wooden Hand beers are a bit odd in my experience. On another day I would praise them for their bold approach but today I just want a pint. Drinkable but one is certainly enough.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A mid golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A pungent hop aroma, peach and a hint of orange, then a light biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A fruity hop flavour, a tad bitter, pithy grapefruit with peach, is followed by a dry, bready tasting maltiness. The finish is bitter and hoppy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. As a few raters have pointed out, quite dark for a Blond Ale. Dark gold with a tight white head. Fruity aroma. Again, flavours I tend to associate more with bitters: apples and brown bread. A little sweet..

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub, 20130410) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and yeast. Palate was medium bodied and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, bread, tartness, homebrew, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was yeasty and acrid. Either a bad beer or a cask gone bad.

A nice enough pint of bitter. Golden in colour with a small head. Yeasty aroma gives a clue to the mildly hoppy and bitter flavour.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Golden with no head, it has some hopped nose but it does smell more like a spirit than a beer. Some mild fruits in its flavour.
