BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Pint, cask: in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 6th May 2014. Pours a light golden colour with a white crown that left some heavy lacing on the glass. Hoppy and zesty, the zesty bit coming from the citrus notes that dominate the aroma and taste. Refreshing but too citrusy for my palate.

BeerViking (2305) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask, malty nose with hints of grapefruit, initially sweet with golden fruity and juicy malt, then drying rapidly with a sharp citrus and herbal bitterness, really well balanced and refreshing.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Last Drop Inn, York 26 Jan 13. Gylden. Litt uklar. Lavt tett skum som etterlater teppelacing. Frisk søt aprikosaroma. Smaken litt sukkertøyaktig. Søt. Syrlig & tørr ettersmak.

DandyLion (513) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Orangey amber. Aroma is malty. Tate is medium malt, hoppy niceness. Taste is nice- a little bitter hoppiness, sweet pale malt. Bitter aftertaste. Quite ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
Half pint, guest ale from cask at The Last Drop Inn. Creamy white head to a hazy, gold-amber coloured body. Dotted spots to the glassware. Grass and half-sweet malts to the nose. Taste character of juicy malts and lemon added by moments of dried fruits with a good bitter support. Good, with session qualities (York, 26.01.2013).

Smells of our sima - orangy. Pretty OK quaffable bitter, but a little wishy-washy. Touch of honey in there. A bit of ginger too in the late finish. Hops fairly raw. Perfectly adequate UK blond bitter, but nothing more.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, London on 17th December 2011. Gold with thin white head and an initial lacing. Citric throughout. Slight soapiness in-mouth, and a sharp lemony citrus finish. A little one-dimensional and thin.
