Wonderful brew. Perfect session stuff. Cask tried at the Grapes Wandsworth London, Summer 2006.
Just about the best I’ve ever had this one. An explosion in my mouth of different, light flavours. Citrussy, flowery with a lightish body. A bit of bitterness. A first beer and one for when you’re out.

Small white head; orange body. No aroma. Light sweetish malt taste with notes of wild berries and a light driness. Soft mouthfeel. Not much taste. You could get blind drunk on this pretty easily. (0.5pt on cask.)

Aroma gives citrus and floural hops with some pale sort of biscuity malts kicking about. Taste is similar maybe a bit thin but seriously drinkable and tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 1. Goat Tavern, Kensington, London: slight aroma with some fruityness. translucent copper in color. flavor is very nice with notes of appricot, and nice bitter hop notes. thin palate. Nice bitter, probably a bit underrated. 2. Travelers Tavern, near Victoria station, London: Don’t drink cask beer here. It is kept awfully and I don’t think they sell to much of it. Youngs is a solid bitter, and this did it no justice. aroma of old malt, with hops being little present. The taste itself was rather stale. thin palate. not very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2011 Cask conditioned - handpump - Some pub near the Porterhouse London. A copper coloured beer with a creamy white head leaving some half decent lace. The aroma is quite thin but not unpleasant - just a beer smell really. The taste is lemony hoppy and is quite smooth and goes down fairly easily. Not too shoddy.Score 3.0
Subsequent ratings scored 2.8 and 2.9. Average becomes 2.9
