Thanks to Mark!! Pours a pale golden color with an off-white head. The smell is light toasted malt, light fruit, mild dull sweetness. The taste is earthy light toasted malt, some grass, mild dull sweetness ending with a bit of dry fruitiness. Light+ in body with elegant carbonation.

Cask @ Bridge Bier Huis, Burnley. Clear golden-blonde with a small creamy head. Has a dirty-malty nose with a crisp, slightly hoppy flavour. There’s a very small dryness in its texture too.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Cask from the Bishop’s Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint Good looking golden beer with small but smooth golden head. Nose is horrible, as bad as any beer I’ve smelled to date, with blue cheese, bread and vomit. Grassy hop dominates the flavour on a smooth palate with some melon sweetness. Taste does better than I feared from the aroma but not one I enjoyed.

GBBF Day 3. Cask. The annual Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Clear gold beer, a few white bubbles. Light palate, finely crisp. Nice condition. Light malts bring mild toffee. Modest orange and a little dried fruits. Light crisp finish. Decent.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, 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 I’ve had but that little bit better than most.
