ALLOVATE (2503) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2011
Cask, handpump @ The Grove, Exmouth, Devon. Nice pub off the beach, nice beer, gigantic seagulls!! Faintly misty in the glass, sunny amber body with a mostly lasting, loose pad of white donning it. Piercing nose reminiscent of damp weeds, camphor, stinging nettles and vine clippings with a hint of lemon and chamomile. The hops hit first in the mouth, bold, very peppery and herbal like dry herbs with the chamomile showing. Moderately bitter, the aroma comes through as it drops off very dry. In fact it is very dry in general. Draws on the saliva making it parching yet extremely refreshing. Just enough citrus in there for flavour, straw-like pale grains across the mid-palate show more and more. The body light, almost delicate and it yielded a slightly spritzy residual carbonation that made it bounce. I like this one, perfect for the Summer that Devon offered up, 4 seasons in one day! Nice stuff.

imdownthepub (10875) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
Cask Conditioned at The Royal Oak, Porlock, Somerset. Gold with white head. Light, lagery type of beer, some lemony notes, flowey, with a thinnish malt. Short on the palate, but still drinkable.

kwik-lime (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Decent if somewhat generic summery golden ale - some hop character and a citrus hint. Nice enough session beer.

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2011
Cask. A dark golden beer with a thin lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of flowery hops and fruits on a lightly malty background. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruit and diacethyl, on a crisp malty background, leading to a quite bitter finish.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Slightly hazy gold beer. Good off white head. Light dry palate. Some buttery sweetness - must be diacetyl - mild though! Dry pale malt. Reasonable orange hop with a trace of lemon. Dry finish. Ok.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Cask conditioned handpump Globe Leicester. A golden beer with lots of lace and a massively lively white head. The sparkler messes with the beer here. There are light and lemony notes but the hops seems restrained and stifled by the extra pressure forced on the beer’s pour. Otherwise shows signs of being a nice Summery ale. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 2.6. Average becomes 2.9
