3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A mid orange brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hop aroma, hints of citrus fruit, then a biscuity malt element comes through. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma with a dry biscuity malt flavour of caramel and cereal, then a tart hop flavour comes through later, that then lasts into the finish.
Tasted at the King William IV, Sedgeford, Norfolk.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity poured pint on 20 Apr 2013 at the CAMRA AGM bar in Norwich.
Light brown body with a copper hint in a strong light source, the head was a weak, thin affair from the off.
No strong aroma, faint traces of citrus and wood as the beer warmed.
The taste more floral than the nose suggested: mildly dry in the mouth with a semi-dry finish.
A long way from interesting, but an OK refreshing brew that isn’t going to upset anyone or test your taste buds.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not the most exciting aroma, but an appealing deep copper appearance. Slightly more lively carbonation than expected but ends up feeling rather thin. I drink it at the Lendal Cellars in York but more because it’s a change rather than because I think it is especially good. Pretty average overall - brewed in a good cause though (for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this bitter in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear copper in colour with a thick white head. Slight hint of bramley apples with a touch of nutmeg. Thin mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Pale malts lead to a robust malty flavour with citrus notes of grapefruit and lime. Spicy almost peppery hops appear in the dry aftertaste. Good combination of malt and hops gives a balanced bitter sweet finish. An excellent sesion ale.
