kidlupin (4) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 27, 2015 does not count
Bridge House in Belfast (cask): golden beer with thin head. Late hop aroma but not aggressive. Slight dryness is mouthfeel with decent body. Low carbonation. Bitter, low malt character, tastes just short of its 5% abv.

theprof (528) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Cask. Spicy hops predominate in a pleasant aroma. Colour honey gold and paler in the light. I guess the pale malts and extra hops tell in the end. Taste well it fills and coats with a metallic edge to the first sip and good resinous palate. Better than many. And deceptively strong. I would try again if offered.

Leighton (18743) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Cask at the Sir Michael Balcon, JDW - Ealing, London. Pours clear gold with a frothy-creamy white head. Biscuity pale malts in the nose, with a small dab of fresh butter and accents of lemon rind. Light-medium sweet flavor with more bready malts, dough, biscuits, straw, English yeast. Light bodied, creany, with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet, with more pale and bready malts, dough, very faint buttered biscuit, yeast, slight lemony citrus. Tasty enough gold.
