Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Cask at Pratts and Payne. Pours a hay colour with a thin white head. Aroma is crisp and hoppy with a nice veg funk edge. Starts sweet, then light lemon and a nice medium hoppy bitterness. It's thin, but ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
August 31, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Union Tavern (Maida Vale). Slightly hazy light gold with a smallish foamy white head. Smells like a well-made if slightly dull classic golden ale - honey n heather, not much alcohol. Taste is less grassy than some, more honey sweetness. Light body, slightly slick, weakly carbonated, a little extra grassiness eventually emerges in the finish. Solid but the unassumingness takes away from my score - I would certainly drink it again on a warm summer evening by the Regent Canal.
