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

Vladivostok (325) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Fairly standard low gravity citrus pale bitter. Refreshing in summer but rather thin for year round drinking. Reasonable but not a favourite.

Cask @ Clarence Hotel, New Brighton [120615]
Blonde, soft haze, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of soft citrus, some dull lemon
Taste of soft citrus zest, light lemon, soft pale malts, some creamy malts
Palate - Medium light body, light creamy, soft sweet, soft bitter zest. Finish as main flavour, creamy, slight bitter minerals in linger Iím not keen on
Overall - Quite creamy this golden ale. Better than the bottled version.

Towey1989 (593) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, some grapefruit, slight honey, cereal and grassy hops. Taste of more lemon, grapefruit, some cereal, a little resin and grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet grassy finish with subtle honey. A very flavourful golden ale for its strength, decent body and really well balanced. Nothing wrong with this, great.

Cask@the waterfront, Barton under needwood marina. Pale straw coloured beer with small head and decent lacing. Aroma of grass, light biscuit and a touch of lemon. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma with a more biscuity taste. Ok.

JorgeLee (1430) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Cask in the Elephant and Castle W8. Pale golden, loose white foam. Another golden ale? Actually more than that, crisp malt, slightly grainy, goid texture. Dry bitterness, sherbety feel, lemon, floral. Absurdly quaffable. Nice pint.

jjsint (1397) - 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.
