Towey1989 (2457) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, some honey, slight apple and subtle perfume hops. Taste of honey, apple, some caramel, slight lemon, a little orange and subtle perfumey hops. Light bodied and a grainy texture. A dryish, slightly appley, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Its not a bad beer, the apple actually adds to the character of this pale, zesty ale. Its just thin and grainy for a 5%er.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as Phoenix Double Gold. Golden yellow, clear and still, scummy beige head. Aroma is airy, faint sugars. Body is light, soft carbonation. Taste is quite watery, musty, touches of glue and citrus, lacking punch and bitterness. Quite watery and sugary. Hmm, its ok. Sort of like a thin hop tea with some honey added. Not far off being a decent beer I think, but not doing it for me on todays showing.

A simple pale bitter. Slight appley ester aromas, some caramel. Harshly bitter, a bit dull. Undergrowthy bitter finish, a bit dirty. A bit meh.
