Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy gold beer. Residual white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fairly low carbonation. Sweetish hops. Peach, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, even a little Sorachi Ace lemon flavour. A really nice medley! Finishes semi dry. Lip smacking hops. With some condition this would have been an easy 4+

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask handpull at Baker Street Spoons. Gold depp slight haze lasting thin sparse white head. Quite a fruity strong golden ale. Stone fruits. Not in great nick but acceptable. Alcohol is quite well hidden but there is a touch of syrup. Its got decent hops on finish. For once I agree with Ken that this is one of the better festival beers. Fruit and malt on aroma. Good full beer.

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottled, 500ml (5.5%) from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn, Norfolk. Gold to amber with white head. This was a light, fruity beer, sweetish malts, lightly roasted, some cereal. The hop is again fairly fruity sweet, floral and light. Overall a decent enough bottled beer benefiting from an interesting tale on the bottle.

Benzai (8910) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 3. Hazy yellow color, small to average sized white head. Smells like fruit tea to me. Tastes like that as well, forest fruit tea and (Dutch) ranja. If this is due to the hops used this is the first time I’ve tried these hops. Quite extraordinary. Not bad though, just weird that I am reminded of tea every time I take a sip of my beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A golden beer with a white bubbly head. Hints of peach in the aroma which struggles thorugh the cold. Decent citrus fruits in the mouth with a nice body. Good hops. The malts give good backbone. This could be a cracker but it’s just too cold on this occasion.

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2011
Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Golden with an off-white foam. Aromas are leafy and resinous with yeast and woody pine. Herbal with crsyallised pear. Flavours are stewed apple with sweet caramel and toffee. Spritzy yeast with lemon and grapefruit. Bready with a dry finish and green apple acidity. Pretty good.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle in Spainsbury’s beer-off. Bright orange-gold with a slim white head retreating to the edges of the glass. Good buttery orange, wine gum, US IPA peachiness, Lockets, slight leafy nose. Soapy throatsweet, stale sherbet, peach iced tea, chipshop battered sausage batter, flowery, Sheps/Alesmith IPA flavour. Not for me.
