Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Golden with a thin head. Aromas are biscuit with lemon and lime. Dusty yeast with biscuit and hints of mango. Flavours are biscuit malts with lemon and some vinegar. Maybe not a beer in the best of nick.

Ok so everyone who sees my profile thinks Iím a sole cider drinker. NO I drink anything that tickles my fancy. I sincerely hope I was given a bad pint because this was truly atrocious it was like drinking gone off white wine vinegar maybe I donít have a really complex palate but 6 drinkers all not being able to drink more than half a pint come on. Sorry if it is me but a massive thumbs down.

downender (8341) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Bag OíNails, Bristol, 15/4/10. As Fin mentions, the pump clip states 3.6%. A funny one this: Lemon and grapefruit dryness clashed with sweet malts head on - the individual flavours were great, but it really didnít come together for me.

Fin (10161) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Cambridge Blue 27-03-10 Pours light silvery gold, in fact this really is very pale in colour, excellent clarity, thin white head atop. Dry and bitter in mouth, some sweetness showing, there is lemon or actually is it sweetened grapefruit? Yes I think grapefruit, a corking beer at just 3.6% according to the pumpclip, quite lovely.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 1)Cask gravity, Nottingham 09. Sulphur over orange, leafy nettle and tea aroma. Wow. Love at first sip; dense fully squeezed hop from the off; stewed Darjeeling, compensating floral Earl Grey notes, sweet doughy malt and dunked Malted Milk. Anaemic straw with a slight mist and marbled slick. Total balance, bags of bite and character. Beautiful. One of best festival beers Iíve ever had. 2) Cask handpull, The Criterion, Leicester. Big sulphur,stewed greenery and...Snack-a-Jacks aroma. Taste of nuts, popcorn, Snack-a-Jacks (toasted rice). Not the beer I remember- skewed too far too heavily in favour of the malt....or rice, with some balancing grapefruit. Too salty, too malty. 636312.
