maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 25/04/14. A golden coloured beer with a white bubbly head. Great grapefruity hops on the nose. Quite hoppy in the mouth as well but there’s an apply sweetness which is a bit disconcerting. It has a good bitter finish though. Decent.

gegwilson (1473) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Cask in the Isaac Wilson, Middlesbrough. A deep golden ale with a white head. Very bitter with plenty of pine. Pretty good, but lacks depth and feels a little thin to be outstanding.

imdownthepub (10654) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. There is a pleasant hoppy aroma to this, quite promising, but doesn’t quite deliver. There is a mid range malty body, some cereal, this is then joined by a fruity, light hop note, some sweetness, some peachiness. Reasonable enough though.
