1/2 at the Maltings, York. Bit of cereal aroma, white head, golden body. Thin bodied, hard to get any flavour past the astringent bitterness. Needed some sweetness to balance it. Nothing to roll around the mouth. Disappointing, and not at all festive.

Cask (CWAF2012, Friday)
Nice hops. Lightish and refreshing. A touch dull compared to the other golden ales at the festival, but this is still better than the typical bland goldens from a few years back. Just a pale bitter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fully clear pale amber; good yellowish tinted firm head. Rather adstringent initial nose, ammonia, then mix of ambrée malt, grain and British hops. Something vegetal as well, mouldy. Sharp ambrée malts taste, again some adstringency, very flat & neutral main taste, going over in a bitter finish that does not really speak of very noble hops. Warming up, however, some grassy/malty flavours appear, not unlike some German sessionbeers. Some body, not really thin. All in all, a bit Orval-like, but in a very crude travesty.
