500ml Bottle: slightly out of date when poured into my Abbot Ale tankard @ home on 29 Dec 2012 (BBD of 25 Nov 2012).

Very palegolden yellow and hazy with a thin white head.

Again not really impressed (as I wasn't with the cask pints I've had): citrus notes in the taste and nose but lacks real flavour and anything of interest.

The worst beer I've ever had from Hobson's?

Cask drawn. The Feathers Ludlow.
Clear straw. Thin head.
Floral aroma.
The malt and hops balance quite nicely. A toffee apple sweetness leads to a mild astringent finish.
Easy drinker.

500ml, bottle-conditioned. Pours gold with subsiding white head. Aroma: floral hop. Taste: noble hop. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Mouthfeel: light bodied, thin. Overall: pleasant pale ale. Polish lubelski is the aroma hop.

Pours with a light frothy head that quickly fades, colour reminds me of a cloudy larger. The nose offers slight malty citrus notes. On the palate it is medium weight and dry with a nice refreshing citrus bite that finishes with a biscuity hint. I enjoyed this and would probably drink more as a session beer.
