Drinkable but bland. Have never understood beers like this...why be so unmemorable?

Cask Salmon Galashiels. Certainly hoppy, but the overall experience is marred by an overwhelming harsh citrus acidity.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 [on draught at the Old Road Tavern, Chippenham, Wiltshire] Tastes more like a golden ale at first but with a rough-and-ready earthy follow through. Drinkable but nothing special. Re-rate 21/4/2009 at the Peaks Inn, Castleton: Amber, mineral taste with some sulphur, leads into a very bitter, earthy finish. Not to my taste. c6

Cask handpump. A golden colour with a floral, yeasty aroma. A nice floral hop taste with hints of citrus and yeast. A nice easy to drink bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Cask conditioned - handpump - Fellows, Morton & Clayton - Nottingham. A light amber coloured beer with a whitish thick head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy whereas the taste is clean and balanced and typically Yorkshire in style. I can see the appeal of this sessionable beer which I haven’t done in the past.Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 2.9

Pours amber with creamy head. Not much in the aroma. The flavor has some reasonable bitterness.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2010 [689-20070925] Cask @ Royal Oak (Oxford, OX). Sweet and hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet grainy malt flavour has a bitter finish. Medium body has good balance of bitter and sweet. Quite nice, repeatable. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4
[3234B-20100801] Cask. Beery grains aroma, not a lot but a little butter and hint of smoke. Clear, amber body with a quick foamy white head. Fresh unbaked bread dough yeast flavour has a hint of dusty smoke. Medium body. Interesting, good to sample. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clearish golden ale covered by a lasting white cover. Sandy, floral and quite bitter beer with a rather generic maltiness. No real toastiness shows hop, it hesitates on a strawy character that lacks confidence. Nevertheless, it packs a fair bitterness and finishes with punch and length.

Cask-conditioned at the Plume of Feathers, Bristol. Amber coloured with a minimal head. Aroma had some fruitiness and floral hops. Flavour had some biscuity malt and a dry slightly hoppy finish. Ok.

1/2 pint at The Wharf in Aalborg, Denmark. Amber color, off-white head. Floral and some bitterness - but much too thin for my taste.
