imdownthepub (10134) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Pale straw with white head. Fresh, light lemon citrus beer, fairly thin but still packs a pleasant, crispish flavour. No real depth however quite enjoyable.

TEJA (1281) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
Cask at the Fox and Crown. Thinn but lasting foam. Clear Yellow color. Citrus aroma with a litle sulphur. Big flowery hop taste. Small sweetness and small bitterness.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Cask at Fox and Crown, Nottingham. Gold with a large white head. Spicy hop aroma. Some citrus in the taste. Mid bitter finish. Not a bad beer, better than the other two Alcazar offerings I tried today, but it didn’t quite have the freshness you look for in a summer golden.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2008
Cask at the Fox & Crown, Basford, Nottingham. This pale beer has a soft fruity aroma and a well-balanced flavour with some grapefruit on the finish. It’s not up to par with Castle Rock Harvest Pale, but it’s perfectly enjoyable, especially as a session beer.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2006 Cask Handpump at the Helter Skelter, Frodsham 27/08/2001 ABV was 3.7% at the time of sampling. Straw golden coloured ale with citrus hops which last right through to the finish.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Grapefruit citrus hops, with cereal malts and sulfur in the nose. Hazy golden body with low, white, large-bubbled head that recedes to ring. Lightly malty flavour with fair balancing bitterness has some citrus and sulfurous notes. Medium-light body with low carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2005
Cask (handpump), GBBF, August 2005. Golden, clean and grassy. The hops are herbaceous rather than floral. Odd how this beer divided opinions. I go down the middle. Entirely fit for the purpose but, with so many similar beers at the festival, this didn’t make any overwhelming impression (good or bad) on my tastebuds. I’d drink this again happily but wouldn’t actively seek it out.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2005
Cask (GBBF): Eggy fart aroma. Big fruits too. Gold with no head. Lacks body and taste. Not very good. Strange that I didnt like this and others did?

DanielBrown (3777) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2005
On tap at GBBF 05. Yellow, no head. Nice aroma of juicy hops. Pretty good taste - juicy hops again, with a lemon tartness and a soured cardboard, errr sourness. Doesn’t taste very window (incidentally).
