harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask handpull at Market Porter. Very pale gold, thin off white head. Decent golden ale, more hops than most beers in this style. Only a touch of soapy hop, mostly good sherbert. OK golden ale. I like Acorn. Decent spritzey condition.

Cask conditioned handpump Whitelocks Leeds 21/03/13. A yellow blonde coloured beer with a nice white head and lace. Really pleasant citrussy hoppping throughout this especially in the nose. Slightly biscuity in the mouth with the tasty hops. Really good.

Rune (7956) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2013
Gravicask, half pint, shared with Finn at NWAF ’13. Fragile bubbles at the top of a crystal clear golden body. Mild lemony hops to the nose. Lightly hopped taste of fruits on a earthy malty backbone. Distant dry bitter ending. OK to drink, just a bit dull (Manchester, 24.01.2013).

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2010
Cask handpull, The New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield- A Beer For Every Year crawl. Greenish pale gold, thick creamy top. Leafy hop and nettles aroma with a puff of sulphur. Fresh lemon zesty hop with lingering creamy cashew. Nothing fancy- classic pale citrusy sessions, in tip top nick.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Market Porter. Clean gold with a thin white head. Standard bitter golden stuff with a hint of wheat and a clean bitter finish with some late mineral notes. Straight down the line but very tasty and hugely drinkable. Good stuff.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
NWAF 24 Jan 13. Gyldengul. Veldig lavt skum. God sitrusaroma. Smaken er grapefrukt med hint av fersken. Gjennomgående syrlig. Blir litt tørr etter hvert.
