Niall73 (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at the old coffee shop, soho. Pours a slight hazy pale straw colour with a white head. Aroma is light, slightly tropical, funky and pissy. Lightly body, light carbonation. Some veg and general savory foodiness, grass, lemon, leaves, a touch of candy and some grapefruit. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maeib (8672) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Old Fountain London. A blonde gold coloured beer with a good white head and lacing. Really good lemony Amarillo hops throughout this. Hints of grass. Malts are superbly balancing. Effortlessly drinkable.

Beer4000 (4445) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2011
Cask @ William IV. Almost clear golden body with a small white head. Citric fruity aroma. Flavor is light malty and nice citric fruity, some grapefruit, peaches and grassy. Quite dry, smooth and decent bitter. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Nice, but not much besides the hop flavors - and sometimes thats just OK.

shoulderbroken (1991) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2011
Cask at William IV. Slightly cloudy light yellow colour with small white bubbly head. Strong lemony aroma. Quite flat in the mouth, and with not a massive amount of distinct flavour, just the lemon you get from the aroma and maybe a touch of grapefruit. Bit thin. Finish is slightly bitter. Perfectly drinkable, but not massively exciting.
