Golden with a white head. Taste was OK but a bit sharp towards the end. Oily texture, a little bit thin. OK but not amazing.

Cask @ Six Bells, Cambridge. Perfect gold. Aroma is buttery, and unfortunately slightly possety. Full sweet taste with bitter around the edges. A reasonable golden from our reliable friends in the North.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright lemon body, loose white dish of a head. Nose of hobnobs crumbled into unlevened bread. Big crushed biscuit packed initial taste, clean but malty and weird. Crumble of body leaves little room for a seeping hop vine and lightish lemon linger.
Cask, Bon Accord, Glasgow

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. Crystal clear golden ale with a steady thin white head. Nose is slightly lemony with a slight sulphur burn. Lemon and creamy in the mouth like a butter shortcake. Steady and pleasant but a bit boring. Bitter finish.
