Cask (gravity) @ The 18th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2012, Reading, Berkshire England.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, open and frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly diminishing to lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, tea, toasted, light to moderate hoppy, grass. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, sweet tea. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120503]

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
500ml Bottle:BBD 19 Apr 2013. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard 7 days before itís BBD. Slight haze to my golden beer with a large foamy, white head: carbonisation bubbles rising throughout the tasting. Pleasant blend of flavours, hops first with the biscuity malts taking over mid-way through the sip, which in turn gave way to a semi-bitter dry hop finish. Most likely the best Diamond Jubilee beer Iíve had so far (one more in my stash).

Slightly clouded golden ale with a pale tint. Small head and light malty character with a medium bitterness and fuller body.

mike_77 (3126) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2012
Aroma is quite fruity with some light floral hop. Itís really smooth and easy to drink. Has a great balance of flavour. Lightly fruity malt and a fresh hoppy finish with just a light bitterness.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle for £1 from Tesco. Sweet weetabix malts, boiled sweet fruitiness and a moderately bitter finish. This showed most of the characteristics of a badly bottled English bitter. Sink pour, looks like I got a bad one.

berkshirejohn (4531) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Still being sold off at a pound a bottle at Tescoís, Andover. Amber with a billowing cream head; grassy hop aroma with a touch of lemon; soft, malty body; with some clean hops to finish. According to the label these are fresh aromatic hops from around the Commonwealth - but they seem to be maily Fuggles and Goldings to me.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle form Tesco. Lager gold without the fizz under a slim white head. Aroma of beeswax, sappy green hop, biscuits and dough. Wet dough, nutmeg-sprinkled taste with pleasant lemony hop and honey notes. Wet dough, soggy under-baked bread and vanilla linger. Touch of egg. Successfully captures the soft malty-hoppy nuances of a cask bitter in the bottle. Completely likeable and well worth a punt at a quid a bottle.
