jmgreenuk (5318) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 23, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malty, leading to a refreshing medium bitter flavour, with lots of malt and some smooth citrus fruit on the palate. A tasty English session beer.

Cask conditioned handpump Old Bank Northampton 20/02/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. A citrussy and soapy beer. A bit of parma violet sweetness in the mouth with nice hopping. A bit of lemon marmalade. Quite nice but a touch disjointed.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2012
On cask at The Three Judges. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Citrusy aroma of lemon, pine, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with some lemon cheesecake also. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Mildly bitter with a nice dry finish. OK.
