Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a foamy, white head. Delicate nose of dry straw, light grass and faintly tosted dough. Light sweet flavor with a sturdy bitterness of grass and pale hay. Some light, dry and pale malts in there. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Excellent condition. Dry finish with a light but assertive grassiness and mild, biscuity malts. This is a very solid golden ale.

maeib (8404) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 06/09/13. A light golden coloured beer with a whitish head. Citrus and grassy notes. Soapy flavours too. Nice enough hoppiness but it’s a bit safe for Fyne. Sessionable. Bit of shampoo, OK.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 14, 2013
Gravity #factoberfest Golden with light white head. Very sulphurous on nose...overburtonised I call it but perhaps a fermentation fault...almost stomache turning rotting eggs. Tastes pretty good at first, light tropical fruits well balanced but a whiff of egg at the finish. The only real disappointment of the festival and hopefully a one off fault from the usually unfaultable brewers
