Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, pale malts and some grassy, floral hops. Taste of pale malts, lemon, some straw and grassy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, grassy, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Not a bad golden ale, decent hoppy notes. Drinkable.

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy broken white head. The aroma is light citrus hop, light malt. The flavour is light bitter with a light grass hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Rather light all round really but quite a decent session ale.

Theydon_Bois (15554) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 Id wanted a pint of Lurpak Id 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.

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.
