ManVsBeer (8499) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Cask @ Beckett’s Bank, Leeds. Blonde coloured with a small head. Crisp and easy-drinking, it has an extremely light fruitiness, but stated enough to be its dominant characteristic.

BlackHaddock (6238) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
1st Oct 2015: cask at the Crown Inn, Oakengates Shropshire. ABV now drop kicked down to 4.0%. Light gold, white topping. Hop centric with a mild light maltiness in the background. Floral and piny hop aroma, the taste semi-bitter calmed by the aforementioned light malt content. Refreshing if a little uninteresting character wise.

pivnizub (10102) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2011
Cask (at The Flower Pot, Maidstone, Kent, U.K.): Clear, golden, small to mid-sized stable white head, moderately herbal- hoppy nose with a tinge of tobacco(?) and a peachy-grapedruity fruitiness; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering grapefruity-hoppy finish with a lemony flavour in the aftertaste. Pretty good.....
