2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20

Clear gold beer. Semi dry and soft palate. Dry malt with juicy hop. Reasonably well balanced but the finish is over dry.

Cask at The Blue Lion, London. Pours clear gold with a light, foamy white head. Some citrus and dough in the nose. Alright flavor, decent balance, some white sugar, straw, dough and mild citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry and sweet finish with some crisp dough, rindy and faintly tangy citrus, and dry hay. Very solid golden ale.

Cask at The Maltings in York. Pours cider color with a creamy white head. Light grassy aroma. Flavor is mildly bready and grassy bitter. Finishes Bitter. (pun?) Sort of what a hopped up kolsch might be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at the last drop pub in York. Pours a very slightly fuzzy gold with a small white head. Lacing all the way to the bottom. Aroma is very fruity and sweet with honey coming through. Tastes floral and peachy with a thin mouth feel. I don’t find it dry as others do but agree its a little oily. Very drinkable if a little too floral.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask handpull at Mr Foley’s, Leeds. Light, golden beer served with a cream head. Very easy drinking, zesty. I moved onto different beer after a pint but others I was with stayed on this all night, so for them it lived up to its name!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Three hand-pulled pints in Restroom Number 2 on Cleethorpes railway station: 10th Nov 2012, just before going to watch The Town win 5-1.
Golden to copper in colour with a good full white head sat on top.
Slightly more malts than hops in both the nose and taste: nice blend of flavours and easy to drink. The barrel had only just gone on and my first pint was also the first out of the barrel: so fresh and ’spritzy’ it certainly was, as were the next two pints I had.
Another easy drinking beer from this brewery: visited it a couple of years back, recommend anyone does the same if they can.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale malts, flowers, & fruits. A more distinct fruitiness gives this one a slight edge to the Terrier for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden looking ale with a fairly fruity aroma, but this is less apparent in its taste.
