downender (6697) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Hope & Anchor, Bristol, 12/7/2014. Golden with a tight, white, head. Easy drinking beer, with some straw, grassy hops, a hint of citrus fruit and moderately bitter finish. Ok, but with little character to speak of.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Cherry Reds Birmingham 25/11/13. A bright gold coloured beer with a tight white head. A bit of insipid lemony hopping. Creamy. Not my thing in the mouth at all. Nose is grassy and flowery. A bit odd really.

DanielBrown (4030) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Hand pulled at Actress and Bishop, Birmingham. Golden, hazy. Smooth, feintly tedious. Some wallpaper, don’t dry, milky bran, creamed into papery wheat flecked UK hop. Clean, well balanced, but not a flavour I would commit crimes for (murder etc).
