Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale amber with a ring of white head and good lacing; floral aroma; thin with a sweet floral body and a light lemony bitterness; then a biscuity finish. Rather bland and ordinary.

kwik-lime (1157) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
A bit of hop bitterness, hint of citrus, nice balance, refreshing - good session beer, generic but totally fine example of the style.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with a little green apple to finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. I really didnít notice the minimalist pumpclip on my first glance along the bar. They need to have a rethink on branding. Iím struggling to say much else. Amber with a small white head. Faint aroma. Faint watery taste. Slight bitterness. A general sense of Rice Krispies was imparted.
