fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, - OCT 17, 2013
Cask @ Alehouse. Gold, slight haze, tight head. Easy drinking, fruity hoppy aroma, malt, almost biscuit backbone. Would be happy to spend a night on this, and at the strength wouldn’t suffer too much the next day...

edsspoon (497) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Cask - Golden with a bubbly white head which fades to a ring. Weak lacing. Aroma of honey, butterscotch and malts. Taste is grassy and earthy with a little lemon, some sweet fruits and honey to finish. Light, oily body.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Golden colour. Not much head. Big apricotty nose. Soft, sweet character, not much bitterness but a lot id fruitiness. Maybe a little more bitterness would round it out.

Grumbo (617) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Cask handpull at The Orange Tree, Chelmsford. Golden colour with a small off-white head. Hoppy, fruity caramel aroma. Notes of malt, grass and hay. Not bad for a sub 4% beer and would make a decent session beer.

RichardW (1541) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Cask Lloyds Carlisle. Grassy citrus aroma, sharp tangy palate that quickly develops a metallic taste which then becomes the beer’s main feature. Nice hay flavour to the finish but some yeast comes in too.
