jjsint (1383) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at the Haltwhistle Comrades Club. Straw with a wispy white head, extremely clear. Orange/lemon and hay aroma. Bitter refreshing taste, with a bit of sweetness in the middle. Bitter hoppy finish, with a pleasant hint of fresh lemonade. Much like many golden beers Iíve had but that little bit better than most.

Cask @ The Keelman, a simple beer with good white head, medium body, pleasant finish. When I had this beer last time, the beer was in the perfect condition. It was fresh, perfect temperature, perfect head.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Canít believe Iíve not rated this before, I must have had dozens of pints over the years. This particular rating is based on a couple of pints at the Wheatsheaf in Felling while watching Germany v Portugal. Bright yellow, white head, clean fruity aroma. Fruity and vinious, light and flowery flavour with a delicate bitter-sweet balance. Deceptively drinkable, as the cliche goes. I may be rating high, because Iíve got a soft spot for this beer, the brewery, and the pub. 1-0 to the Germans. Isnít it great when life is so reliable. 17/01/2014. Not to adjust any of the numbers, simply to reflect that since my rating in June 2012, The Wheatsheaf has been my regular Friday night straight after work destination, and the PB has been of a consistently high standard. Top notch.
