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.

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.

Golden looking ale with a fairly fruity aroma, but this is less apparent in its taste.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this bitter near the Albert Hall, London in May 2006. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Slight floral aroma. Refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt complex giving a digestive biscuit note with a sharp citric note of grapefruit and lemon peel. Dusty citric hop resins add a tart astringency to the aftertaste. Finish is dry with hop resins giving a floral note in the palate. Almost an IPA in style and good for a summer session.
