DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2007
Cask at Blackfriers. Pours a reddy brown, lacing is key throughout, looks great. Aroma is biscuity and slightly richer bown ale malts, floural and citrus flavours off the hops. Taste is alround well balanced biscuity hint at chcolate malts with a grassy bitteringness and a nuice citrus orangy lemon flavour left in the mouth. Outstanding session ale!

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
Oct 2008. The Globe, Dunstable. A fresh, light session bitter with fragrant whole hop aroma and flavour, leaving a tingly bitterness on the tongue. Very nice.

chriso (7353) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2005
Did Glen and I taste the same beer? Perhaps they’ve changed the recipe. Bright amber colour. Bursting with fresh flowery hop, with some resinous notes and something almost minty in the background. Obvious Cascade influence. Juicy, fresh, citric flavour. Maybe just a touch soft on the finish, but that would be nit-picking. I thought this was a cracking, flavour-packed session beer, served in tip-top condition. Cask (handpump), Penderels Oak (JDW), Holborn, London.

DanielBrown (3809) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2005
Hand pulled at Wetherspoons, Paradise Forum, Birmingham. I’m going with Chris here. Light amber, creamy ring head. Superbly balanced light Bitter. Fruity, but gentle and sustained hop flavour, with a small malt break to finish. Not big, but very tasty. This is a GOOD session beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2005
Cask conditioned. A classic session bitter: good head and colour, wonderful hoppy aroma. Citrus notes in the flavour with underlying malt, and a solid bitter finish.

Cask Handpump at the Penny Black, Northwich (JDW) 08/05/2005 Golden amber coloured with floral and citrus hop aromas. A slightly dry malty finish.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Cask, Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold, bit of pale white head. Sweet nectar aroma, spicy honey, friendly powdered old-lady. Soft spicy hops, a little farm, marmalade, bit of bell-toned blackberry. Smallest toasty touch in the finish. Delicate, simple, pleasant. Seeing the brewers description here as I enter this rating: Cascades in this? Hmmm. That’s a surprise. Wonder if they are using 06 or 05 crop? Nice beer anyhow.
