Doesn’t start out too bad - there’s some of the Adnams house breadiness that you get in e.g. Southwold bitter. But after a few sips the limitations become obvious. There is very little hops character, the malt flavour is annoyingly bland and lacks depth and complexity, and the body is thin and watery.

Cask @ Barton Arms, Worsley. Relatively smooth tasting golden pale ale. Nice and light in texture and in the palate with a lovely malt-hop nose and fruits in its aftertaste. Rasmus40 (20435) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014

Cask at Gladstone in London. Not much aroma. Stone fruits, some citrus.
Almost like drinking peach juice, but very watery unfortunately.
Actually better than my rating suggests, but completely lacking any depth. MrTipple (4803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014

Cask at Victoria Inn, Holkham Hall, Norfolk. Appears pale golden with a decent white head that laces well. Aromas of cereal malts, hay, mild caramel and citrus hops. Sweet malts up front balanced by a decent citrusy hop bitterness. Smooth lightish flattish palate with easy sessionability.
Pleasant. The Etruscan (672) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 21, 2014
Off white weak head. Amber colour. Aroma is hoppy with fruity (apricot and light orange and grapefruit) notes. Flavor is moderately hoppy with light fruity (green apricot and plume) ending in a moderately hoppy, very slighty grapefruity finish. Light bodied. GuideDogSaint (1415) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUL 22, 2014
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours dark golden with a thin white head. Great citrus and pine aroma. Short bitter finish. One of the better Adnam’s beers.
