Theydon_Bois (9131) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby, 04/06/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is laced with diacetyl, floral tones, butterscotch AD. Taste follows, a little less of the butterballs but still well evident, pale malt, straw, hint of citric fruit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. If I’d wanted a pint of Lurpak I’d have ordered a pint of Lurpak. Twiggy nonsense!

On cask at Burton Bridge Inn - Golden body with a thin white head which soon goes. Aroma is caramel malt, floral and grassy with a sulphurous-ness in the back. Taste is the same with out the match smell, very drinkable however, but my least favourite of the three I had at the brewery tap.

Cask handpull, The George and Dragon, Stoke Golding, 15/10/13. Slight but aromatic lime, green herb nose. Pale and lacy gold. Pretty neutral slightly lagery flavour with lime again, woodland notes, finishing corn-like creaminess.

Very much a summer session ale. Thin texture. Quite sharp and tarty in flavour some citrus and tiniest bit of resin. Small amount of bitterness underneath.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
Tasted this bitter in the Last Post, Paisley in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick white head. Citric lime note in the short floral aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a juicy zesty flavour of lemon peel and tart grapefruit. Dry dusty hops in the bitter aftertaste compliment the malt well. Refreshing bitter finish with a citric dryness. A typical summer session blond ale.

(CASK @ the Coopers Arms,Rochester) I like Burton Bridge their beers are good and sometimes innovative too. This Golden Best Bitter was pleasant , citrusy fruity hops -married well with light sweet caramel notes. Easy ale...

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
Cask. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops on a lightly malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of straw, leading to a bitter finish.
