BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Cask, gravity half-pint at the Bridgnorth Beer Festival on 6th Sep 2014. Clear golden pour with a full white crown. Mild citrus notes in the aroma and taste, not a lot going on otherwise, almost bland in fact. Not the best beer I have had from these guys.

Ferris (4166) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Cask - Very light citrus pith and pale malt. Gorgeous white creamy head and clear gold. Bland and pithy with not much else. I wish it tasted as good as it looked.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Fountain Inn, Gloucester. Lovely floral citric display on an undistinguished pale watery biscuit malt. The hops are the main thing, and are just a little overdone for my taste.

imdownthepub (10235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Cask conditioned at No.1 Harbourside, Bristol. Gold with white head. There is a light and crisp character to this straight off, grapefruit peel and citric bitterness, lasting on the palate, well hopped. A very pleasant light beer.
