ricardotorero (46) - Greater Manchester, - FEB 17, 2013
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

jjsint (1056) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Cask at the Hog & Partridge, St Neots. Pale gold, clear, a bit of loose white head. Light aromas of lemon and candy sugar. Bittersweet taste, with lovely floral (and less lovely buttery) overtones. Slight bitterness in the short finish. Palette has a little bit more body than I expected. Good enough.

JulienHuxley (3601) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2014
Gravity cask at In de wildeman. Clear gold pour with cask head. Aroma is quite grainy, toasty, light leafy hop. Taste is malty, nice English malt, sweet honey notes, light bitter mineral character, bready notes that leave a long lingering aftertaste. Palate is light bodied, thin carbonation. Iím not blown away by this beer but it somehow tastes quite classic, and nobody twisted my arm to finish a half.

jmgreenuk (5234) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 27, 2014
Cask at the Ye Olde Foundry, Dudley. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is yeast, light malt citrus. The flavour is light bitter with a light malt hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not so much going on but I totally get this beer!
