Cask at Brew Wharf Saturday 20th October 2012 What a wonderful hoppy, golden ale at just 3.8%. Had this in the company of Ang, who actually made sure that this got put on whilst the Thames Tipple crowd came through, thanks Ang! Lovely beer bursting with hops, fruity and so full of flavour for such a low gravity beer. I wish I’d have given more thought to details but to be honest it was busy and we were just having a good time. Excellent beer. A8 A5 T8 P4 Ov16 4.1

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Cask at Brew Wharf, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a bubbly white head. Lots of well and dried grass in the aroma, some citrus, light pale malts and straw. Light sweet flavor, quite bitter with citrus rind, dry grass and straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Strong, gritty hops to finish, light sticky and oily grass, orange rind. The rye seems to impart a light tang. Not bad, though a touch abrasive.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2013
(Cask at Brew Wharf, London Bridge, London, 24 Nov 2012) Golden colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, grapefruit and resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, resin and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh ale with an impressive hop character. The low abv makes it very drinkable. Nice one.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Cask at the brewpub with Sarah. Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of pine with some grapefruit and a hint of underlying earthy grains. Flavor has a nice grapefruit note with a bit of backing pine and a backbone of grains.

ladnewton (1411) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Cask at the CRAFT Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 13th October 2012. Gold with thin white foam and some lacing. Hoppy, cheesy aroma, then intensely bitter in-mouth. Sharp, cutting bitterness continues through to finish where it is met by some nuttiness. Bitterness only slightly offset by subtle biscuit malt. Rich and intense, packs a nice punch.

Craft and again at Brew Wharf a month later. Best part of a pint courtesy of Ang - Cheers mate. Almost clear pale gold beer, small white head. Light dry palate, fresh and crisp. Neutral pale malt. Nice hops - floral sweetness. Mild tangerine marmalade. Fresh bitter grapefruit. Nice skunky Nelson lurking around. Finishes dry with a grapefruit bitter aftertaste. Really well joined up and very drinkable.
