Had this at the National Brewery Centre in historic Burton-on-Trent on cask.

Appearance: golden yellow, creamy white cask ale head, good clarity

Aroma: citrusy, slight tropical fruit aromas with slightly detectable burton plastic like phenolic aromas

Taste: not a very taste-filled beer, finishes tropical fruity and bitter, but not a lot going on when you swish it around in your mouth. Plastic like burton water quite recognizable.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, smooth low carbonation

Overall Impression: A decent ale that combines some refreshing tropical fruitiness with buront water and soft malt background.

Hand-pulled pint at 'The Brewery Tap': the National Brewery Centre in Burton-on-Trent on 10 Apr 2013.

Pours a golden yellow with a white but thin head.

Floral nose and taste: like an English Summer garden (wet). I prefer it's big brother (White Shield) but this was OK, if a little delicate and subtle in its flavourings and depth of body. Malts do appear later in the taste, mildly biscuity, although not a dry, bitter beer it isn't really sweet either. Some fruity notes also in the blend as the beer warms in the glass.
