Yeovil Hop 145
10th August 2017
GBBF Day 3. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, light and pretty flat. Light malts, sweet and a touch grainy. Floral mid and then some watery citrus. Flat and dull and a frustratingly poor showcase for this new hop.

Gravity at Just Ales, Wells. A very quaffable and acceptable old fashioned beer - good balance. It’s what you’d expect a best bitter to be.

On cask at the Caley Picture House. Appearance - golden amber with a nice lacy head. Nose - oranges, toffee and malt. Taste - more orange and toffee biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - this is a touch gnarly but it does have extra depths of complexity.

Yeovil Yolo #10 Belma & Colombus
August 2016 - Cask at GBBF 2016 as ’Yeovil Yolo #10’. Dark yellow or orange, still, clear, small foamy white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is airy, light sugars. Not much to speak of. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is biscuity, light malt, sugary. I found it difficult to describe this as the flavour is quite light. OK, just very subtle. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. (3.1)

Yeovil Hop 125
Cask @ The Sportsman, Huddersfield. Golden with a creamy head. Had this following an ale that was 10.6%, so it felt exceptionally light! I think it is genuinely that in terms of texture and mouth feel, without feeling too weak or thin. Has a hoppy character with a full nose in this respect.
