chimpgibbon (207) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Very good light hoppy session beer. Smells like summer. Honestly there’s so many beers of this style that bore me to tears but this just delivers that yellow fruit and sharp hop goodness in spades. Could and may drink all day.

ZShelt (7) - Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2013 does not count
Perfect. On cask at Churchkey in DC. One of the best casks I’ve had here, it’s fresh and the citra hopping is "fabulous" rather than "fecal." Still tastes like English turf with a very very lean malt build. Better attenuated than many American hoppy blondes while still being distinctively English. New classic? Hope so.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Cask handpull at Churchkey. Cloudy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of fruity lemongrass, very nice. Taste is bitter roots.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Cask at the Old Coffee House, Soho, 08/07/13. Very lightly hazed pale golden with a thin off white head. Nose is toasted malts, orange, hops, citrus, light caramel. Taste comprises orange pith, citrus, lemon rind, hops, light sugars, touch of minerals, hint of peach melba. Medium to light in body, light hop bitterness in the finish. Great sessionable fayre!
