Cask; Regular.
A straw-coloured ale, with a high percentage of extra-pale Marris Otter malt giving some initial light, fruity sweetness. This is counter-balanced by a generous dollop of First Gold hops, leaving you with an extremely long, dry finish and a refreshing bitterness.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Fat Cat & Canary, Norwich. Nice pale malt beer. Quite sugary sweet with a dusting of bittering hops. Decent enough, but a little too sweet for my taste, and lacking in ideas.

jamesie1857 (1374) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
On cask at Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield - Hazy golden body, thin white head. Nose has a musty aroma, like damp wood, with citrus and flowers. Pot-pourri almost. Taste is light, fresh and dry at the end giving a long bitter mouth clacking finish.

kwik-lime (1294) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Cask at The Antelope in Surbiton. Low carbonation, quite citrusey, decent beer but lacking a little something in the body. OK.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Poured with a bubbly, doming white head atop a clear golden body. Caramel, yeast and some delicate floral, lemony notes. Much the same on the tongue with some apple lasting into the aftertaste. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel with a short bittersweet finis. Fair but I’ve had better from the brewery.
