Cask; Seasonal - June to August. Retired after the summer of 2011. his is a blonde ale, brewed with East Anglian Pale Ale malt and English hedgerow hops. Light and crisp with a lovely biscuit backbone, perfect for the summer. A distinctively different summer bitter delicious served cool. Perfect accompaniment to white fish, prawn & curry dishes.

Cask, Angel Hotel, Market Harborough. Hazy gold with a dense head. Aromas are biscuit malts with clean hops and citrus. Flavours are crisp, light buttery malts with some citrus and floral notes. Went down well while watching rugby.

Cask, gravity at The Rock of Gibraltar Beer Festival, Enslow, Oxon, 01-09-07 Golden with some haze, served a bit too warm in my opinion, beers were served inside the pub on racks with no effort to keep cool. malt on the aroma and some honey. Tasted fine if bit warm and sweeter than anticipated, some fruit. A friend was convinced that this had aroma of baked beans?? Only ok I’m afraid.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 1. Cask Stillage at the Old Broken Cross, Rudheath 11/07/2002 Golden coloured ale which is creamy on the palate. Some pale malt character and dryness in the finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the Exeter Arms, Derby 15/08/2007 Hoppy aroma. Golden coloured with a little sour fruit flavour. Some bitterness in a crisp and creamy dry malt finish.

Cask conditioned handpump Sole Bay Inn Southwold A golden beer with a small off white coloured head. The aroma has some nice spicy hop and a bit of citrus and a touch of grass. The taste is reasonably hoppy with some orange citrus notes. Pretty tasty.

downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2017. Golden in colour, with a small, off-white, head. A thin tasting pale ale, with a hint of stone fruits, lager malts and moderately bitter finish. Dull all round and way below Adnams’ normal standards.

Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2007
(Cask at Dartmouth Arms, Dartmouth Park, London, 6 Aug 2007) Golden amber colour with brief head. Fruity nose with notes of mandarin, lemon, citrussy hops and something slightly sourish. Fruity taste with mandarin, apricots, hints of sulphur, grassy and citrussy hops in the finish. Slightly too sweet for me. Drinkable, but no favourite.

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
Cask at The Lord Nelson Ipswich 22 Sep 06. Clear golden colour. A tiny head. Metallic aroma. No distinct flavour. Dry bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2004 I was rather surprised that I hadn’t rated this one before, and nor had Silk Tork, so here goes. The usual gold colour for a summer ale. The second surprise, and a not altogether welcome one, was the distinct initial whiff of sulphur on the nose. Once that had dissipated, some soft hoppy freshness came through, but not very strongly. The palate was cleanish, and hoppy, with a touch of malt too, but mainly soft, as was the finish. For my money, this is a bit heavy on malt and light on crispness for a quaffer. Not one of the better summer ales on this showing, but perfectly pleasant and dependable. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.
