oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Cask (backlog). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is citrus, wood, some grass and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is similar, but also has some sulphur and earthy notes to it. Not all too pleasant as for the flavour.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Three Guineas, Reading, 25 June 2009. Gold colour, slightly hazy. Dryish, some citrus. Rather herbaceous. Standard light bitter with a somewhat summery feel. Didn’t seem as fresh as it could have been - maybe a little tired.

downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the State Bar, Glasgow 2/07/09. Deep gold in colour with a slight white head. A balanced session bitter with a whiff of citrus hoppiness, a touch of biscuity malt and a gentle bitter finish. Ok.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Citric aroma and taste with a little background grain. Slight bitterness. Nice, gentle refreshing bitter. No frills and just right for a Sunday morning in summer.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Cask in the new wheat sheaf. Alround rating: Biscuity pale malts, grassy light lemon hop, well balanced and tasty stuff.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Cask, Three Guineas, Reading. There is a giant Carling sign on the A4 into London I noticed that states ’Made from 100% British Barley’ ...Anyone who knows the character Nathan Barley might appreciate the humour in that. I recommend checking out his original incarnation at tvgohome.com hugely. As for this beer, drunk in haste en route to catching a train; slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. Caramel malt flavour , muted hop, and slightly grainy as down the pub observed. Nothing special really.

imdownthepub (11283) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Gold with white head. Malted biscuit body, quite thin on the palate and quite grainy. Tastes a little incomplete perhaps.
