harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Gold, with slight haze, thin lasting off white head. Aroma of sherberty grapefruit hop. Citrusy flavours in the mouth, reminds me a bit of Oakham JHB. Right up my alley. I wonder if it has Mount Hood hops in? A little watery in mouth, but the hops are excellent. Good beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Cask, with Traci and Fin at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Warm copper, a bit of white head. Sulfur, nettle, a little lemon sweetness. Grapefruit flavor, fresh and fruity without being particularly bitter. Fresh, light palate, very refreshing. As much as I tend not to like the Burton sulfur nose, it’s not overbearing here.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Clouded gold with slight head. Fairly standard golden ale, dry and hoppy, light lager crossover with a touch more interest. Reasonable bitter finish, but it didn’t persuade the lager drinkers on our table to change.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Cask in the counting house. Aroma is caramel malt, floural and grassy faint wiffs of sulphur salts. Taste is the same very drinkable however perhaps lacking in bittering hop.
