(Cask at Philharmonic, Liverpool, 25 July) Colour is amber with a foamy disappearing head. Nose is fruity with citrus (grapefruit and mandarin). Taste is fruity and hoppy with grapefruit and mandarin. A bit sweet, with a balanced flowery, hoppy finish. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Farmers Arms, Ulverston, Cumbria. Gold colour with soapy head. Dusty smooth hop notes with a slug of toffee caramel. Full mouthfeel but strangely restrained base malt. Lasting sweetness, a decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Hazy, pale gold, with thin white head. Dusty soapy hop aroma. Some creaminess in mouth. I expected more of a pronounced Liberty hop flavour. Odd beer. Malt needs to be better, but will be a good summer beer.
