At Knott Bar M/Cr. Had two great pints after footy and could have stayed for many more, but the thought of my wife shouting at me after an impromptu session swayed me away

hackobock (1167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
Light hazy orange with a small head. Weak light fruity and biscuity aroma. Smooth body and easy drinkable, clean but weak taste of light sweet malt and very light bitterness.

Aroma: flowery hops, caramel. Appearance: clear light gold, medium white head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: citrusy hops, bitters getting quite intense, average-long duration. Overall: nice Golden Ale, a bit on the bitter side in palate. Pint at Cat & Canary, Canary Wharf.

Cask at The Old Joint Stock; clear straw yellow pour with foamy white head, lemon and malt aroma, taste has pale malts along with lemon and a hint of grapefruit crisp tasting and fairly good.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask in the Vat and Fiddle, Nottingham. A golden ale with a slight white head. I expected more from this given how well it seems to be regarded locally. Some grapefruit notes in the finish. Itís refreshing and goes down easy, but itís just not very interesting.

roballenby (7) - - FEB 15, 2014 does not count
Pint on cask at Knott Bar in Manchester. Pint is poured to a beautiful golden colour and has a mild bitter finish. A very good session ale

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Golden. Aroma is light with floral honey and a gentle fruity hop character. Nice, easy-drinking balanced golden ale.
