niquillis (783) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2011
On cask at Kings Head, Deane, Bolton. Pours copper with a white head. Poor aroma, stale but the bitter is OK. Fruity and malts, average effort.

weaselkenievil (1224) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Cask at the Robin Hood in Rainow, Macclesfield. Hazy orange gold with medium white head. Aroma of hops, herbs. Flavour is hoppy and fruity, tangerine jam a bit like a Jaffa cake. Unusual but pleasant sat in the sun on my 1st wedding anniversary. Toast, cheers!

AshtonMcCobb (2131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2011
Cask at Thomson’s Bar. A golden ale with small head retention. The nose is of pale malt but fruity. The taste is of more pale malty, but the hops and malt seem to be conpeting. The palate is light to medium and again wishy-washy. The overall impression is of the kind of wishy-washy ale that had me running back to lager in the past.

3rd February 2011
Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Loads of beers shared with ChrisO and Harrisoni - Cheers! Clear gold beer, no head. Trace of sulfur in the nose. Mild citrus, trace of sulfur in the taste as well. Creamy flat malt. Drinkable - just!

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #6 at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival on 3 February 2011. One of those beers I was surprised I’d not rated before. Clean, crisp and golden. Quite strong citric and slightly floral hop character. Tasty and refreshing, if nothing particularly out of the ordinary. Came over as much like a golden ale as an ordinary bitter. Good session fare.
