Belgo (154) - Křge, - OCT 21, 2010
Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Nice golden with an off white head, that, true to it being cask, disappears quickly. For a British beer this has a very distinctive hoppy aroma: loads of classic British hops makes one feel as if taking a stroll in a hop garden in Southern England. On the palate the beer is lively (impeccably handled by the staff at The Harp), bursting with hops and a biscuity malty background. Super beer and one, that I’d love to have as my session beer for a night at the pub.

tom10101 (2248) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Cask @ Harp (Greater London). Clear golden with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruits/citrus, mineral notes and light herbal presence. Taste is the same as aroma with a little more grassy notes and a light but sticky herbal bitter finish. Light body. Low carbonation. Sticky. Nice earthy blond ale. Drinkable and refreshing.

Draft at Good Companions, Brighton. Pale gold, large mug, nose all hops. Great balance bitter and flowery hops, mouthfeel low carbonation but fantastic flavor. Loved it. Fit the mood - sunshine, sunday roast, great bitter.

jookos (1541) - FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
On cask @ blackdoor. Yellow colour. Pale malts, fruity grapefruity hops. Well bittered, light but not watery. Pretty nice thirst quencher . This one did have a bunch of eggy sulphur on it, but otherwise a nice smooth light tasty brew.

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Appearance- light and hazy, golden with a small head. Aroma- big hops, zesty, fruity. Taste- some carbonation here, all about the hop bitterness, a bit of tangy lemon/orangey. A nice ale overall.

Pompa @ Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fŕ. Chiara un pelo torbida con bellissima schiuma. Carbonazione a zero, amara e beverina, mantiene quello che promette al naso!

Cask in the Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Pale golden coloured with a frothy white head. Sweet at first before a bitter tropical fruit finish with grapefruit and pineapple. A refreshing and sessionable brew. Just a little thin perhaps.
