Cask, Longstop, Leicester. Pale gold with a white head. Aromas are biscuit with crisp lemon and grapefruit. Peanuts with bready yeast and hints of mango. Flavours are dry biscuit with zesty, bittersweet lemon marmalade. Quite peppery to finish. A very nice easy drinking blonde.

Cask gravity, Leicester BF, 08/03/12. Pale and brilliant with a slim, loose but lasting head. Peppered jam, lychee, tangerine and urinal aroma. Firm bodied, full and ripe with flowery tangerine hop, juicy biscuit base. Mature and lip-smacking effort from The Monkey- savoured every last drop.

Scopey (6932) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Cask gravity at CPBF 2014. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is dank, earthy, must, barnyard, citrus peel and sweaty. The taste is bitter, piney, resin, oily, hop astringency, varnish and citrus fruits with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent hoppage, but smells musty.

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/6/13] Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen in London. Clear golden. Aroma is a bit on the weak side but has some hops, citric and tropical, with overripe fruits and a yeasty note. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, light graininess, yeasty notes, fruity hops and a finish with mild bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Decent but nothing spectacular.
