Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Summer Beer Fest. Cask. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and light. Light sweetish pale malts. Nice zippy orange - lemon hops, light but bright! Whisper of hops spice. Moderate citric peel bitter linger. Very light and drinkable.

Cask. Golden color with small white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, citrus zest. After promising aroma, taste was big disappointment, very bland malty base, with very shy citrus hops.

Cask @ the Earl of Essex. Light amber gold, tiny head. The nose is bread, white grape, angel food cake. The taste is light honeyed grain, streak, more white bread and light citrus. A fairly straightforward golden. OK.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2012
Cask (handpump) at the Salutation, Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Clear gold. Pleasant firm citrus aroma. Rather tangy on the palate with zesty lemon to the fore. Dry finish, clean mouthfeel. Described as a good session ale and that about sums it up.

Cask, Swan & Rushes, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grassy with lemon and cereal. Marmalade on toast with a light nuttiness. Flavours are bitter lemon with grapefruit bite. Very grassy with lemon pith. Low malts with some marmalade sweetness. Dry and bitter on the finish. A decent bitter session brew.
