The_Osprey (6607) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Cask at The Hope, Carshalton. Light orange, totally clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is very light citrus. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet bubblegum which by itself would be sickly, a musty bitterness saves it and makes it quite nice, a bit of resin. A bit oversweet.

Saeglopur (1732) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Dark golden to amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, some berries, candy, grass, some fresh herbs. Taste with the same aromas, the malt body is really smooth, with honey, biscuit, candy. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a smooth carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, fruity and complex malty. Quaffable, easy to drink and still full bodied, with a tasty, multifarious malt body and nice, fresh fruit notes. Really enjoyable!

Bottle. Hazy dirty amber colour with a small bubbly head. Hoppy, a touch dry and fruity, with the latter aspect more prevalent in its nose.

ReV2 (171) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
A delicious golden ale with a thin off white head. Taste of bitter marmalade, hint of lime, good hop bite. Reminds me of many beer festival ales. A great taste for the coming summer.
