Cask; Special - January 2012.
Straw to the eye, with an intensely incriminating flavour and aroma of pine and citrus. Under some close examination, beautiful hints of tropical fruit. These are tempered but a hint of sweetness and a crisp malt body.

Light a summer beer if you will, the type of ale that farmers in Warwickshire would have sunk after a busy day on the farm. Nice, easy but not calling me back for more.

McNeillR (2227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
Clear and clean on most counts. Well settled head and light yellow head and colour. Unassuming lemon linger after the initial palate kick, with a tight dry finish. A vast improvement on Fosters for Australia Day anyway. (Cask, Bow Bar, Edinburgh (Winter Beer Fest))

leaparsons (9851) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Cask, Swan & Rushes, Leicester. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are biscuit malts with lychee and apricot. Lemon with dusty yeast and herbal notes. Flavours are sweet apple juice with toasted malts followed by a great floral, peppery, clean hoppiness. Good stuff.

cgarvieuk (21612) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
and verily i say unto thee, than on the 20th day of January in the year of our Lord 2112 i found myself if an Edinburgh hostilary named Cloiters and belike this be one of my favourite places to embibe the amber nectar. It was their that the underskinner poured forth a flagon of Kangaroo court for my pleasure and enjoyment for the nonce. Soft and dry lemon wafted up from the glass with just a touch of bittterness while in the smatch i can espial a touch of light lemons and soft fruits and forsooths i can say a long light bitterness came henceforth from the liqour that verily i say unto thee that i will still be tasting on the morrow, in sooth these vital were rather dull.

I dunk this after some coding.
