Cask @ BA Savoy, Malmö. Mörkt guldfärgad med stort vitt skum. Allteftersom tar sig både smaker och dofter efter att till en början (trots väl tempererad) varit i det närmaste menlösa. I doften: Blommighet, citrus och gräs. I smaken: Citrus, karamell, säd och blommighet. Försiktig beska i eftersmaken.

NordicV (1128) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2014
Cask på Bishop Arms Savoy, Malmö. Gul öl med vitt skum. Doft av framförallt hö men även viss maltighet. I smaken tillkommer lite tofee men hö/spannmålssmakerna är dominerande. En helt okej sessionöl.

Scopey (6667) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Cask at Spread Eagle. It pours clear golden with a tiny white head. The nose is sweet soft fruits, white grape, gooseberry, grain and honeysuckle. The taste is toasty, caramel, white grape, gooseberry, honey, citrus peel and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice fruitiness to it. Easy-going spring ale.

Cask handpull at The Barrow Boy and Banker London Bridge. Clear gold lasting white head. Sweetish golden ale. Not much bitterness but some bitterness does build. Sweet golden ale. More on the peach apricot side than citrus fruit. Ok. Good peach flavour.

Gary (1366) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Cask @ Coopers: A Golden drank: Kinda hoppy and dry. Zesty fruit orange with little rich malt background. A reasonable golden ale ,hops could be more intense while still keeping it relaxed as easy as is intention.

laiti (5620) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Cask @ Black Door
Aroma has toffee, hay and some hops. Flavour is rather odd with lots of hay. Also some English hops and hints of toffee. Some malty tones do occur after some sips. Weird, like biting a haystack.

Nicholson’s Beer Festival. Cask @ Bank, Manchester. Golden with a small head. It includes plenty of tropical fruit which is more obvious in its taste than aroma.
