3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the Alma, Cambridge. Light golden brown, almost but not quite clear. Gentle but pronounced floral aroma with some nectarine. Sweet taste with a hoppy balancing bitter edge. Peach and apricot flavours in the aftertaste. Thin body. But thus is unbelievably good for the ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Metropolitan (Spoons), Baker Street, London. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Malty, fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes the same, malty, fruity, caramel, slightly sweet. Not bad but I don’t think my pint was in particularly good condition, it was served way too warm and was slightly sour, a fresh pint would have scored better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.15/pint.
Good-looking coppery amber beer with a smooth, white head. The aroma is appealing and full of hedgerow berries, citrus and jam. The taste is very fruity, with bittersweet citrus hop and sharp marmalade flavours. There’s also some doughy malt present. Salopian have a reputation for doing pale, hoppy ales like this very well and deservedly so - this is crisp, refreshing and enjoyable.
