3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Cask conditioned - handpump - Brunswick Derby. A golden coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is lovely and hoppy with good citrus notes. Lots of citricity in the flavour also. Oranges and lemons to the fore. A tasty well balanced beer. (7,3,8,3,15(3.6))
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Merchants Inn, Rugby. Really nice hops again in the aroma but not as hoppy in the taste.. Still enjoyable though (8,3,6,3,13(3.3))
Score is an average of the two.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold. Sweet, fruity aroma. Very sweet peach taste: a little sourness. Not much hoppiness. Very light stuff for the alcopop drinkers. But not bad.

Half on gravity at The 11th St Albans Beer Festival. Very good clarity of a pale golden body with no head. Lemon citric aroma with floral undertones. Spicy taste with notes of citrus. Short bitterness in finish. Rather thin palate. Gives a perfumed impression (28.09.2006).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump @ the Last Drop Inn, York, Nth Yorkshire.
Tasted alongside the more aggressive Centurions Ghost ale, a mistake on my part yet I can easily say this can stand tall on its own. Into a pint for lunch; clear, very pale gold body with a thick, well retained head of cream that left behind some firm lacing. Summery, rose petal, cracked pepper crackers and various citric fruits make up the enticing aroma which was only marred by some eggy-fart notes that came in late, preceding each sip. Very clean in the mouth, light in body and mildly spritzy in residual carbonation. Nicely balanced mix of ripe and zesty citrus fruits, peppery spices and a touch of zingy, floral hops. Finish is gently bitter, not too long and again powered by the flavours of the palate. It was hot this midday and this was exceptionally well suited for it. Could have downed plenty more with ease. Quite nice!!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (handpump) at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Pale, goldish colour. Grassy, perfumed, sweet hop aroma. Citric, lemony flavour, but there’s no great depth there. As one might expect, the body is a bit thin. Nonetheless, a decent, lightweight, quaffer. As the name suggests.
