tombyars (1683) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2016
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) on the 3rd November 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Weak malty aroma with notes of green apple and a slight hint of boiled eggs. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with tart gooseberry fruit coming through in the mouth. Dry dusty hop resins impart a metallic tang to the bitter aftertaste but not cloyingly fortunately. Slight malt present in the weak finish with tart fruit still evident in the palate. Lacking in depth of flavour and complexity compared to other Blonde Ales at a similar ABV.

500ml bottle. Clear golden/light amber colour with a thin white head, good retention. Aroma: fruity, peach, gooseberry, caramel malt. Taste: tart citrus fruity, gooseberry, caramel, slight sweetness followed by a pronounced and lingering bitterness. Soft-medium carbonation, medium body, bitter aftertaste. Quite drinkable.

Handpump at Craft Beer Co - Covent Garden, London. Deep gold clear pour, off-white foam. Nose: English malt signature, a bit smoky kind of dusty room. Barley leftovers! Lovely! Mouth: Rich barley, easy drinking, oxidation (ripped cherries). Bitter aftertaste. England on forever! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonbenali (200) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours orange to amber with medium carbonation, a thin white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is gooseberry, caramel, lime and lychee. Taste is a touch rubbery and harsh, but with a nice length bitter finish. Good malt notes for the ABV even if it’s a little thin. Got better the more it warmed up and has some interesting flavours.
