Cask at Fitzgeralds, Sunderland Flavour packed but too much so. Heavy drink

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, day 2 in August 2007. Pale gold colour. Modest condition with thin white head. Not much in the aroma department. Dry and clean on the palate but not much depth of hop presence. Acceptable quaffer but seemed rather underpowered and uninspiring. Could use more zesty zing. Alright but golden ales need a bit more than this to capture the attention these days.

Typical Big lamp flavour, ordinary, lightweight, not doing it for me, but by all means try it.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2011
Had this on cask at the Cask and Barrel Southside, Edinburgh. A yellow beer with a creamy, white head. The nose was really interesting, lots of hay! The beer tasted a bit yeasty with a nice malt character. Very drinkable.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Pale yellow colour, not much head. Very malty nose with bready and even yeasty hints. Flavour is yeast, some slight hints of smooth caramel malts. Still boring.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask handpump at GBBF. Watery yellow appearance. Sulphuric aroma with slight diacetyl and some honey. Exactly the same in the flavour with a powdery finish. Boring.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2007. A bright yellow gold coloured beer. A sweet aroma with notes of honey. The taste also has honey and sweet yeastiness. Acceptable but fairly uninteresting.
