2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at The King Charles II, Worcester. Pale gold with white head. Sweet and slightly honeyed beer, fruity but nothing specific, it leaves a sweet coating on the tongue. Not to my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (backlog). Yellow colour with a small white creamy head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, mild nectar, bready and some dough like notes as well as some mellow grassiness to it. Flavour is earthy, grassy, herbal with some citrus, bread and mild nectary notes to it. Refreshing and tastier than the "average golden ale".

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
11th July 2015: cask half-pint in the Duke William. Very pale, straw coloured body, the head a white film of not much. Mild citrusy aroma with a grapefruit like flavour. Not in great condition considering it was drank at the Brewery Tap and they knew that a large CAMRA group were coming. I wasn’t part of that group, but I knew some of them when they came through the door.

Cask at the Duke William during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear, light yellow with a tight, white foam head. Lovely golden ale with nice balance, sweet dough, light straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Sweet finish with doughy pale malts, white bread and subtle bitter straw. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s just a summer Black Country bitter, not too great on the nose because of the FeS (Iron Sulphide) in the water around the area, but a pleasant mild citrus note in the after taste. It’s far more uniform batch-batch than it used to be.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Duke William, Stourbridge. Poured a clear light straw colour with a broken white head. The aroma is a mellow egg smell I must say leading to a weak bitter, malty flavour with a watery palate. It’s a good job I like eggs!
