Yeovil Hop 125
Cask @ The Sportsman, Huddersfield. Golden with a creamy head. Had this following an ale that was 10.6%, so it felt exceptionally light! I think it is genuinely that in terms of texture and mouth feel, without feeling too weak or thin. Has a hoppy character with a full nose in this respect.

Cask from the barrel. Aroma coffee dark malts and cereal. Pours black to brown with just a circle of lace to mark the top. Taste has mild licoric with dark fruit and toffee finish. It could grow in my estimation.

Yeovil Lynx Wildcat
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 5th April 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin off white head. Slightly hoppy aroma with a hint of grapefruit peel. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a light digestive biscuit base with a juicy grapefruit flavour. Citrus note present in the light bitter aftertaste with a dry earthy background. Finish is slightly malty by a nose with a hint of pink grapefruit sweetness coming through at the end. A so-so standard session bitter.

Hallmark aroma for the cask ale apparently is caramel malts Reddish brown no head to speak of. Despite hints of dark fruit in the scent it is not overly sweet. And there is a growing bitterness on the palate. Personally I found the palate more watery than smooth. However one has to make allowance for a pour from the barrel at a festival. I would certainly drink it again.

Yeovil Glory
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of red berries, some nutty malt, slight biscuit and subtle orange. Taste of red berries, nuts, subtle chocolate, slight caramel, orange and some spicy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, nutty, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Looked and smelled below average so wasnít looking forward to it but itís really well balanced with a decent hop profile. Little thin and inconsistent to be good though.

Cask at the Commercial Rooms, JDW - Bristol. Pours totally clear copper-gold with a creamy, light tan head. Grainy aroma, some toasted hay, leaves. Light sweet flavor, mildly astringent, with some grainy brown brad, husk, leaves, earth. Light bodied with fine carboantion; decent condition. Bitter finish, with dry toasty bread and grains, faint citrusy hops, bitter earth and leaves, slight tea. Not bad overall. A little astringent at first, but thankfully that quality relaxes over time (perhaps the palace adjusts). OK.

On cask at Henryís Bar, Paignton, Devon. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - light lemon and grapefruit. Taste - dry lemon pith and dry malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - the nose promised more than the taste delivered. But not bad!

Yeovil Yolo #3 Citra
Cask @ The Tiger Inn , Bridport . The Citra hops are obvious as they climb out the glass in an accent of American citrus zest .. with a musty woody pine vibe that makes me visualize a log cabin in some rustic forest .... like in a Friday the 13th movie. Grapefruit notes too ! A bright murky banana yellow beer with just a small ass ring of white. I like Citra hops , the citrus vibes they offer in beers like Sierra Nevada Torpedo do grare things to pale ales as is custom . This beer is mild . sure the citra is vibrant but its still medium on any kinda bitter onslaught ....If the hops were turned up a little more this would be a better pale ale . its a bit unassuming , but still a pretty good beer .

Bottle at home. Pours a light orange colour with a small head that quickly goes. Light aroma of floral, pine hop. Taste is quite sweet with a good bitter balance. Lots of flavours, rich malt and fruit, perhaps also a little spicy. Good carbonation, the finish is a good balance of sweetness and dryness. A very pleasant beer.
