gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Cask at the Beamish beer festival. Amber with a white head. A fairly standard bitter. Some malt flavour, some hop flavour, but nothing stands out. Very average.

Bottle, gold with a thin white head, golden malt and peppery hops on the nose, crisp and juicily drying body, more grassy peppery hops, a touch of citrus and honey, a nice golden ale

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUL 13, 2013
Gentle and easy going golden coloured beer. A slight fruity hop and grassy top note, and small buttery bottom notes. Pleasant.

Cask handpump at The White Horse, Chelmsford. Amber colour, with a small head. Fruity aroma, with some toasted notes. Very nice and well served.

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Cask at Gardeners Arms, Lewes. Really citrusey and some hop character coming through as well, but not enough to make it memorable. Decent beer.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12. Clear golden with a small white head that soon thins. Fruit on the nose and some light hop tones, not a huge aroma. Taste follows, hints of tropical fruit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter finish. The classic 6-3-6-3-12 formation says it all. Dribkable and whelming!

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
50cl bottle from a range of local beers in the village shop in Upavon, Wilts. A bright amber pour with a ring of white head; floral aroma, perhaps elderflower; soft and gently bitter in the mouth with a light berry fruitiness and then a prickly bitterness before a clean refreshing finish. A light, subtle, beer - very English is style.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Lunch-time hand pulled pint in ‘The White Hart’, Shifnal on 20th June 2012. Light amber body with a creamy off-white head that produced some good lacing. Weak flavours from the start, more malts than hops in my opinion and not a lot of maltiness either: aroma was only slight hop/malt/yeast esters, the taste just a hint of beery ingredients. Leaning towards boring!
