imdownthepub (9999) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - JUN 10, 2013
Cask conditioned at The King Charles II, Worcester. Pale gold with white head. Sweet and slightly honeyed beer, fruity but nothing specific, it leaves a sweet coating on the tongue. Not to my taste.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Cask at the Duke William during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear, light yellow with a tight, white foam head. Lovely golden ale with nice balance, sweet dough, light straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Sweet finish with doughy pale malts, white bread and subtle bitter straw. Good one.

Gizzo (2) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2013 does not count
It’s just a summer Black Country bitter, not too great on the nose because of the FeS (Iron Sulphide) in the water around the area, but a pleasant mild citrus note in the after taste. It’s far more uniform batch-batch than it used to be.

jmgreenuk (4071) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Cask at the Duke William, Stourbridge. Poured a clear light straw colour with a broken white head. The aroma is a mellow egg smell I must say leading to a weak bitter, malty flavour with a watery palate. It’s a good job I like eggs!

tommann (2620) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Cask at the Duke William, Stourbridge. Pours pale gold with a small head. Aroma is leggy with lemon. Taste has sherbet lemon with a low bitter finish. Not sure what Rich has been tasting but I’m unsure what males taste like.

Cask at Duke William, bright amber pour with frothy white head, slight lemon aroma, taste is mostly male with a cirtrus hop trying to break through. OK with a bitter finish.
