Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is smooth, juicy, tangerine and orange squash. The taste is orange squash, tangerine, grapefruit, light resin, marmalade and decent bitterness with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Rather nice.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Cask at GBBF í13, 13/08/13. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head. Nose carries a lovely dose of citra hops, bitter orange, light pine, grapefruit. Taste isnít as rich as the nose, citrus, grass, orange pith, hop presence. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with hop bitterness. Nice stuff - deserves a style upgrade from GB to APA!

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
GBBF. Clear yellow with decent white head. Smells of citra hops - gooseberry, slight melon, maybe a bit of cabbage. Taste is quite watery, gooseberry, mild bitterness but one that really endures in the aftertaste pleasantly. Body is quite light and the carbonation is soft. Decent.
