Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Golden amber, clear. Tight head. Little or no aroma. Sweetness and some fruityness. Not enough from the hops for my taste but perfectly drinkable.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2011
Cask, handpump @ The Coal Orchard, Taunton, Somerset.
The head is shortlived, a fleeting loose froth of white atop a bright medium amber body. Fresh baked white bread, toasted oats, peach and orange marmalade and a little barnyard must on the nose. Watery palate, quite thin, grainy with light citrus notes and a dry, musty finish. Has a sour, tangy edge to it that builds around the swallow with a lingering toothpick and straw flavour. Pretty average stuff considering the level of British Golden Ales on offer. Not Bays best!

wheresthepath (1469) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2011
[Cask at the First and Last, Penzance] Golden amber with a moderate white head and moderate fizz. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel; a mild citrus flavour and a slightly dry finish. Not a lot to it, but certainly very easy to drink; you could quickly knock back a few of these!
