3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 500ml. Off gold with a slight haze. Extremely easy to drink with a low carbonation. Juicy hops prevail, slight malt flavours. A good translation of what is an excellent cask beer.
Cask. Warning - this may be a dodgy sample. But the main "wonderful" thing about the aroma is its absence. It's lightly hoppy. Also it's a cloudy orange where others have had it clear and golden. The top is lace but fleeting. Fortunately, the taste is okay. Fruity, but with a pleasant and moderate bitterness. The texture is slick and the body medium to light. Carbonation soft and bitter finish. I have said my prayers. Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2017
Fra flaske spandert av Rune. Delt med ham i WC-veien 24 Apr 17. Gylden. Høyt tett skum som daler sakte. God fruktaroma. Smaken balansert. Mye malt men også innslag av plommer & fersken. Bra øl. Rune (13781) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 25, 2017
A 500ml bottle bought at Queens Head in Chelmsford and shared with Finn back home. A bright warm golden body. Stable white head. Spotty lacing. Modest aroma of floral hops. Well blended taste of leafy hops and restrained caramel malts. Rounded, drying bitter tail. Medium bodied. Classic British brew, nice and tasty (Tromsø 24.04.2017). john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Feb 2010 - Pale yellowy gold. Citrus hoppy aroma. Very citrus-fruity (grapefruit, lemon & tropical fruits). Very hoppy (floral & grassy hops). Solid Malty base (sweet malts, caramel). Very citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Wonderfully balanced; tangy citrus fruits, grassy hops, sweet malts. Enjoyed this a lot. Lovely beer. Nice pint! (2010-02)

Handpull cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Deep gold, clear with almost no head. Smells vaguely of citrus and peaches but there’s a spicy/soapy hint. Very bitter throughout and not particularly balanced. The Amarillo hop is left to run rampant. Bitter soapiness in the long finish. It’s alright but quite messy. Too many problems to justify a higher score.

Cask at the Alma Inn, Harwich. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is big citrus fruit grass bucket hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp refreshing, light fruity hop bitter, light pepper spice palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask rake. Perfectly doable golden ale. A bit part for me but perfectly OK.
