DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Very honey like aroma and smooth as silk on the palate. Flavour has loads of lemon taste making the overall effect a bit like throat sweets. But this is no bad thing. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask conditioned handpump White Swan Leeds 14/08/12. A golden coloured beer with a tight white head and lacing. A crisp biscuity aroma. Decent fruity tastes. Biscuity malts. Served too cold and over sparkled. I think there’s a nice fruity beer trying to get out of this.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Golden pour, nice white head. Looks every inch the standard golden ale. Mild bitterness until the finish. Straw. Some pear fruit. Good balance. Enjoyable [12072012]

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A golden coloured pour with a decent white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty. Would make a decent session beer.

On cask at The Heriot-Watt Beer Festival. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Fin (7349) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Three Tuns, Bristol, 28.01.12 Pours gold edging towards amber with a white head, excellent clarity. Nice beer with decent hoppy overtones, fruity and uncomplicated, but strikes me as being more of a pleasant session beer than something that I could wax lyrical over. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5
