3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Pleasant enough washing bowl mouthfeel, by which I mean it’s quite liquiddy and slippery. Hops yes, but somewhat raw/burnt or something. I drank it and enjoyed it, but can’t go underboard.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Interval Bar, Sheffield. Clear gold, creamy head. Astringent line aroma, some pepper lurking. Syrupy, sharp citrus, then a mouth filling dry bitterness that finishes tart.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stale golden body, slight cushion of a wee finger head that lasts, cascading to the dregs. Dry peanut shell incased hop nose. Cloying mouthfeel before chance to take any note of a citrusy quench that seemed to be rummaging underneath. Firm but fair midrange involving little more than a puff of dry hop and trickles of cheap from concentrate orange. Very sweet. Little bit more kick on a bitter finish, but nothing to believe it to be a ’Monster’.
Cask, Friends Of Ham, Leeds

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Tapped Leeds. Hazy amber/gold shade. Buttery malt flavours up front with plenty of herbal hop notes to follow. Not bad but I’m not a huge fan of the flavours here, and it doesn’t come close to living up to its name.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Craft Beer Co, London on 24th September 2011. Clear amber with frothy off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma and then burst of hoppy bitterness in-mouth with fine grapefruit and herby bitterness. A delectable grassy finish. Light mouthfeel, but slight viscosity of texture.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg. Hazy golden ale with a stark white head. Lemon and pineapple zest nose. Taste is hoptastic - huge gut punch of lemon, grapefruit and slight mango bite. Perfect for this sweltering day.
