[CASK: The Friendship Inn, Fallowfield, Manchester 30/06/06] I always base my ratings on the drinking of a full pint of an ale and base some of my judgement on how long it takes me to fininsh the drink. This particular point, was dissapointing. I will be honest, it took me a while to drink, I struggled to finish it (something I rarely tend to do). Was a pretty unpleasent taste and overall quite nasty. Would not recommend.
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Nethergate Cross Border’. Old school clip. Golden yellow, clear and still, minimal beige head. Aroma is musty, toffee, breadcrusts, touch cheesy. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is sugary malt, candy cane, teacake, musty floral bitterness. Overall, simple and sweet but balanced. Not bad.

Thick milky pancake aroma, quite mouthwatering. Smooth and bready in the mouth with some creamy sweetness and a nice hoppy finish. Light caramels and acetone tang. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2009
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Attractive floral hop aroma. Taste is sweet malt and grassy hop, nicely balanced, with a delectable aftertaste. I thought this was a first class golden ale from Nethergate. By the way, the beer’s name is definitely two words: ’Cross Border’. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2006
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A pale golden beer. The aroma has some good sharplemony hops. The taste is very sharp and nicely bitter. The bitterness is certainly the dominant factor in this tasty beer

Cask conditioned at The Kings Arms, Oxford. Pale gold beer with white bubbly head. Light fruity bitter with an underlying biscuity sharpness. Dry bitterness on the finish, refreshing but without being flavourfull. Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2006
Cask conditioned at Catford Beer Festival. Golden. Brown sugary sweet malt bitter. A couple of hops thrown in for good measure balances the full malt body. It’s strange. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense), Catford Beer Festival 2006. Eye-catching mid gold colour. Big, herbaceous, gooseberry leaf aroma. Citric on the palate. Quite sharp and refreshing, but bitterness is very restrained. A pleasant, easygoing quaffing ale.

Cask gravity at Catford BF 06. Golden with thin white head. Some odd malt in this, not huge hop. Bit bland. Some hop aroma. Nothing defining though. Fine.
