(cask) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of nettles, apricots and straw, slightly chalky, with a hint of cardboard. flavour is mostly herbal hops and citrus fruit, with some more straw, a hint of vomit and yeast. light- to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from The Real Ale Shop Newark. Clear pale gold thin layer of white bubbles. Perfect end of evening beer for me. Looks ok to good. Interesting aroma of yeast hops and an almost dirty woodiness but in a good way. Then a brittle light fruityness in the mouth and a spritely spritzy finish. All going on in a 3.6% beer. Lovley, lemon lime and apricot and peach. Just bright and happy. Itís a happy beer. Just so bright and sparkly in its personality. Lovely. Made me smile.

edsspoon (497) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Cask - Pours golden thick creamy white head, very good lacing and retention. Aroma is tropical fruits, orange and some sourness, although took a while to get anything from the aroma. Taste is fruity, citrus and grapefruit, with a medium sweetness and a long bitter finish. Quite nice and light.

BlackHaddock (4042) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Refreshing light amber ale with a full white head: hand-pulled pint in The Pheasant, Wellington on 30th May 2014. Slight aroma of fruitiness, but nothing much at all. Nice blend of flavours with the malts just about winning over the hops for the sweetness and bitterness stakes. Not a lot going on, but a pleasant enough beer: I chose it because I was driving.

RichTheVillan (3338) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Cask at the Bishop Vesey; this beer manages to achieve a zero smell and an insipid taste, flavour does consist of boiled vegetables, on the plus size it does have an appearance of light amber with a thin white head.
