DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Hand pulled at the Pear Tree, Kings Heath, Birmingham. Super colour, with a nice haze to the gold. Something rather juicy and squelchy about the hops and mouthfeel here. Made it fruitier, zestier somehow. Liked it.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Clear amber beer, residual white head. Palate is light, semi dry and very mildly carbonated. Tangy bitter orange hops. Mild minerals. Very bitter tangy finish. Abrasive and hard work.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30th January 2013. Slightly hazy amber with ring of foam and diminishing lacing. Hoppy and spicy aroma. Richly hoppy in-mouth with citrus, smoke and fruitiness. Increasingly bitter finish, and a smooth to light mouthfeel. Exquisite.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at CPK, London. Pours deep gold with a fine, white foam head. Lightly toasted pale malt nose, some hay and dry lemon - in other words, a pretty damn standard aroma for a golden ale. Light sweet flavor, some crispy, biscuity pale malts, more hay, light lemony citrus bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Lightly dry to finish, further notes of lemon, some toasty straw, dry biscuits. Classical stuff. Good beer, the brewery name notwithstanding.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A dark golden coloured pour with a small off white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, quite bitter.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s deep gold with a small head. The nose is robust armpit, funky cheese, some peaches and white grape. Light bready aromas. The taste is more of the same. Plenty of peach, summer fruits. Pale malts. Soft lemon and mild lemon. The body’s light, the carbonation soft. Overall, not bad. By the way, this brewery’s name is absolutely terrible.

Taste comprises pale malt, grass, caramel, light fruit notes, hops. Medium bodied, a little thin, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff.

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2012
Soapy off white head and copper light malty body. Nice citrus aroma, well hopped although clean palate. Light carbonation, fits the beer well. Solid bitterness, somewhat vegetable but not in a bad way. Pretty full bodied, mouth filling palate. Really nice. (33cl bottle at Deanso’s tasting)
