The_Osprey (7621) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Roosters True Grit, 3.9%. Coincidentally I just finished reading the book. Golden yellow, translucent and still with a scummy beige head. Aroma is melon, pale sugary malt and elderflower. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has plenty of melon and sugary malt, gummy sweets, straw, elderflower and lemongrass. Clearly in top condition and drinking very well today. Good golden ale.

Cask at the William Withering. Pours clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma is grass, citrus fruits and a little hop. Taste is a little malt and straw at first then the bitter hop kicks in with a hint of lemon. Well kept and overall a decent beer.

imdownthepub (14035) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Cask conditioned at The University Club, Oxford. Gold with white head. The beer is fairly thin with a light caramelisation and some sweetness. Little in the way of hops for me, perhaps a light fruity note but Roostars seem to be much more frugal with their hops of late. Nowt special.

Cask. Shakespeares, Sheffield. Clear, pale gold. Thin, bubbly, sticky, white head. Subtle aroma of peachy hop and vanilla malts. Some citrus. Taste is light bitter. Some dryness. Light body. Gets sweet toward the end. Ok.
