Cask@Market Porter, London (backlog). Golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is fruity, floral, bready and mildly nectary notes. Flavour is floral, bready, caramelly and also has some wooden notes. More a golden ale than a bitter imho.

tombyars (1595) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2011
First tasted at the Fox & Hounds, Houston in May 2002. Cask ,handpump dispense. Pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Lingering citric note in the long aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a zingy lemon peel note which is balanced with noticeable pale malt undertones. Aromatic hop resins give a dry bitter aftertaste and compliment the sweet malt well. Good bitter sweet finish. Reminiscent of Pendle Witches Brew? Really good summer session ale this.

niquillis (2344) - 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 (1608) - 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 (5372) - 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.

chriso (7513) - 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.
