Cask at Coggleshall (I think). Clear gold beer. Semi crisp and semi dry palate. Sharp hops impart citrus. Biscuit malt. Tasty beer that slips down very easy.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask handpull, The Craven Arms Inn, Appletreewick, North Yorkshire, 20/04/11. Brilliant gold with a Persil drum of head. Lemon barley and slate aroma. Flavour has almond, mineral grassiness, big hop punch leaning towards shampoo IBUs...but very little hop character. Corn snacks afters, rich tea crumbs. Clean and drab.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival on 23 February 2011. Gold colour. Decent condition. Mellow but fresh mouthfeel. Restrained biscuity malt with some citric hop character. No show-stopper but a perfectly agreeable and likeable clean golden ale.
