Previously lost notes from GBBF 2006. A golden bitter. Malty and fruity with not enough hop! Boring.

Golden. The aroma is herbal. The body is a bit creamy, with light floral and fruity hops. Really sessionable. Goes down very quickly.

Cask @ Three Judges, Glasgow. Bright gold with nice head. Aroma is sweeter than expected with lots of white plum and lychee esters, which indicate some bright hops. Sweet pale malts tend to be a little sticky here but the cereal flavors come out nicely.

At the Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Poured a pale yellow gold with a thin white head. As usual with the beers in here, looks quality. Very easy to drink session beer. Not my thing, usually prefer more flavour and knackers but nice citrus, grapefruit, hop flavours.

Slightly sour and alcoholic beer with no real kick. Not a real fan of either this beer or the brewery in general.

Very pale yellow with a thin but lasting head, very little aroma but a good slightly sweet citrus hop taste, I had to have four of them to be sure it was good.

Cask, The Champion, Kensington, London.
Very clean straw body, small thick white foam.
Decent hop nose; grapefruit and bitter orange, unripe peach, grass and pepper spice combine with a hint of sweet cereal malt.
Low carbonation, smooth texture, medium-to-lean body.
Straw-like cereal malt backbone stands firm against hop flavours; pine, grapefruit, pepper, pineapple, grass. Finishes slightly dry, good sharp hop bitterness.
Well flavoured bitter, has a combination of American and English hop flavours.
