Cask (GBBF2011)
A pleasant hoppy bitter, with a nice wooly finish. Its nice to have some interesting fresh hoppy tastes in my mouth after a trough of boring bitters.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol, 1/9/2014. Golden with a slight, white, head. Easy drinking for the ABV, with some cereal malts, touch of tropical fruit and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

Leighton (10991) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam. Doughy malts throughout, some white sugar, mellow citrus, faint straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with some light, dry hay and sugary dough. Basic, tasty.

saxo (14044) - Hjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle. Nice frothy head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sour brett, stable, malt, fruits, flowers and hops. Not sure brett is intentional but I like it.

berkshirejohn (4531) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2011
Cask at the White Rock Hotel, Hastings. Straw with a thin white head; the aroma is grainy and faintly citrus - Im not sure at this point whether this is a Golden Ale or a cask lager; quite thin in the mouth, but with an assertive flavour - some indistinct sour fruit and some strong grains, with a touch of honeyed sweetness; then a dry finish. Interesting, but I dont think Id venture beyond one of these.

olio (6195) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2011
50 cl bottle @ chriso.
Rated on 20110722.
Pours hazy light yellow with large head, looks somewhat like champagne. Aroma of light sour fruits, spices and malts. Flavor of sour grassy fruits, butter and reminds me of jonge lambics. Probably a bit infected.

imdownthepub (10248) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2011
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest 11. Pale gold with white head. Light, quite thinnish beer but with a light fruitiness in the close, passion fruit perhaps, leading to bitterness. Its ok.

Cask at GBBF 2011, Wednesday. Clear golden - white head. Fruity, light malty, light pilsner malty, a bit crispy, bitterness, ok hoppy, citrus. OK.
