3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask fresh on at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow, 23/7/14.
Light malt and floral hop aroma, dense white head reflecting somewhat high carbonation of first pint served from cask; hence, good lacing.
Fine balance of biscuity malt and light hoppiness, good body for its gravity, with a mouthfeel suggesting a stronger ale; reminds me of a good pint of Theakstonís Best Bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals meet mineral notes in this slick, drinkable brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cleae golden.
-The mouthfeel is quite suave. One of the beerís best features.
-Hops are a bit shy to my liking.
-This remains a finely drawn pint that is light years ahead of the macro lager they serve next to it.
On cask at The Pump House, Brighton.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Globe, Nicholsonís, London. Pours clear gold with a small, fluffy white head. Basic golden ale here. Plenty of dry straw, bits of dough and citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, a bit of zesty lemon, straw and biscuity malts in the finish. Very basic, refreshing beer. Nothing wrong here.
