Cask at The White Lion, Disley, Cheshire, £3.10/pint.
Very light and refreshing summer beer with hints of honey and lots of what I identified as melon. Decent but not all that interesting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, hand-pulled half pint on the sun terrace of Cottage Loaf, Llandudno on 11th June 2014, one of two tatton beers on offer. No haze to my Lazy half, pale gold body with a full white crown that gave lacing. Hints of honey and tea (the pumpclip mentioned tea) in both the aroma and taste. Refreshing enough but not really ’my cup of tea’: didn’t stop me having a half of their Blonde though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Pale yellow with a thin head. Has both a malty and hoppy character and both are evident in the palate. Light textured but a healthy one that proves to be very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Telford’s Warehouse, Chester. Pale gold with white head. This proved to be a very fruity beer with a distinct raspberry character, almost a fruit beer in flavour, sweetish. Reasonable enough.

Last pint before the barrel went, the guy at the brewery gave me another half pint so I could top it up myself. Blonde coloured ale with flavours of tea, lemon and hops. Beer of the night for me

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Sweet aroma of honey, spice and floral hops. Flavour had plenty more honey, some grainy malts, green tea and a dyish finish. Unusual.
