prawlie (1492) - ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Nice golden colour, no gas, nice head. Slightly sweet, smooth, pure and with a hint of malt. Pleasany and refreshing. That said the dry and bitter aftertaste is a little too strong. Little in the way of aroma, neither good nor bad.

Oakes (15358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
Medium golden colour. The aroma is malty with a little bit of pedio. Earthy character, definitely on the sweet side, with maybe some sulphury notes. Not a terribly dynamic beer.

Scopey (12014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Cask at The Britannia, Richmond, London. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thin fluffy white head and soft carbonation. The nose is bread, yeast, orange and grass. The taste is lemon, lime, pineapple, orange, hay, grass, honey, light spice and bread. It is a crisp, fruity, easy-drinking session ale.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 (cask ) all the loclas where salivating over this - i left this till I’d sampled the Christmas ales from the taps next to it. A beer that intertwines a sweet malt caramel quality , with grassy , spicy fruity hops . I can see why this would be popular. Has certain textures found in generic lager - while ovbiously being of better quality. But one of those golden ales with lagery tendancies.
