Jonb5 (316) - Greater London, - OCT 29, 2012
Pint from Weatherspoons Real ale festival. Amber colour, haze rose slowly, clear, one finger head, decent retention. Aroma was faint hop and some yeast. Tasted malt and cranberry, pronounced bittetness, wheaty finish. Thin texture, carbonation gave it a coarse edge. Overall slightly lacking character and too strong to session, average.

Good bodied ale with a slightly sweet aroma and also a bitter-sweet taste.

sic1314 (2560) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2012
Poured a pale golden with a moderate frothy white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Medium bodied and fruity flavour (banana and orange citrus), aftertaste is moderately bitter. Past it’s best.

ianwelby (333) - SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2012
A pale beer with a nice, thick head. The balance of flavours was quite pleasant but it could have done with being a bit strong. With a bit more strength of flavour it might have been a bit more memorable. Though it did have a nice, vanilla-esque aftertaste.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012
From cask at Turnhouse. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small, creamy and white head. Aroma is mild fruity, citrusy and crisp hoppy. Light acetone note, apples, fruity, bitter and dry. Lingering fruity to a dry and bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
The Bear and Ragged Staff, Beduff; afternoon session with Pops MacDrunkeasy and Hatz, 08/11/12. Clear gold with a slim top lacing finely. Thought this was the Hooky; lemon and hay in nose, creamy malt and oatmeal on the palate with hints of lime and grassiness. Amazingly, decent.

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Cask at the Claude Du Vall (JDW), Camberley - 27/10/12. Clear pale golden with a thin white film atop the glass. Very subdued nose, light fruit and malt, trace of caramel. Taste develops beyond the nose. Fruits, caramel, buttery diacetyl notes, pinch of spice. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a bitter finish. Below average fayre.

Cask at The Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Pale straw with a tight cream head; fruity aroma; sweet and fruity flavour - greengage perhaps, and lightly bitter; with a sweet, but clean, finish. Far better than I expected.
