3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Geldart, Cambridge. Mid-golden with a loose white head. Very little aroma at first; further sniffing reveals some passionfruit and banana esters. A pronounced bitterness crashes the tropical fruity sweetness party. This beer has a nice balance, even as the bitterness overtakes completely in the long finish. Light notes of banana, cantaloupe and marshmallow offset the intensity in the aftertaste. Flawed but interests nonetheless. There’s a fair bit of character once you scratch the surface.

Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 27th August 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque straw in colour with a thin white head. Thin malty aroma with light elderflower notes. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a light biscuit base with tart sweet tangerine fruit. Floral dusty hops gives a clean citrus bite to the bitter aftertaste. Finish is balanced with malt just edging it with dry elements of citrus peel coming through in the mouth. A standard Golden Ale.
