harrisoni (17166) - Ashford, Kent, - JUL 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Kent bf 2012. clear gold i had it as Andrew said it was good. Cask beer is lovely stuff when done well. That lovely mouthfeel is sublime and unlike anything else in the beer world. This has pale malt and sufficient tangerine hop to keep your mouth interested. Decent beer. Good sharp tang on the finish.

imdownthepub (13077) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Salmon, Leicester. Gold with white head. There is a pleasant tropical fruit hopped note to this from the off, quite light with a gentle bitterness. Becomes a little thin through the beer, but reasonable enough.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Egham Beer Festival on 20 August 2011. Another new Kentish brewery and a very promising introduction. Bright gold appearance. Lasting, thin white head. Excellent condition. Good clean zesty citrus on the nose with some floral notes. Lots of lemon on the palate. Definite US hop influence - Amarillo apparently. Very refreshing.
