Golden ale with a light texture and a bitterness in both its aroma and taste.

Cask. The beer is flat and almost no taste. Watery with some esters. Nothing worth a try.

Cimbasso (255) - - AUG 21, 2014
From the cask at the Hollybush in Hampstead. Light copper in colour with a slightly amber head of loose foam. Malt and hop aromas. The taste a has a soft maltiness which gives way to pleasant, fruity bitterness of, I would guess, English hops. A lovely pint of ordinary bitter with excellent balance. Medium to low strength and highly palatable.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 21, 2014
Off white creamy head. Amber colour. Aroma is malty with light fruity (prunes) , hoppy and caramel notes. Flavor is malty too, a bit watery, with citrusy and hoppy tones, ending in a moderately hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
Cask @ GBBF 2014. Smooth fresh beginning. Nice malty body, fresh easy to drink with a nice smooth ale background over a malty, not too dry body. Fresh, easy to drink and smooth. The aftertaste is malty-fresh, not too deep, but nicely balanced. Nice!

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at the the Union Inn in Cowes. Starting off with a bit of crispy hops and some malty nuts. Bit dull and lacking some carbo. This s maybe a picture of a perfect ale but it could be more crispy , hoppy and fresh.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
On cask at The Union Inn in Lewes. Pours out in a brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of light but bitter hops, citrus, nuts and spruce. Crispy finish. Not a bad one.

GuideDogSaint (483) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 7, 2014
Cask at the Barley Mow, Epsom. Mid brown with a white head. Light hoppy and malt aromas. Bitter finish. Pleasantly refreshing.

Dark amber colour. Hardly any head. Very mild fruity aroma. Bitter tasting with a hit of spice. Smooth and very flat. Quite light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cask. Amber colour. Fruity and light. Not much hop profile. Decent, refreshing, nothing too special though,
