leaparsons (8174) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask, Slug & Lettuce, Leicester. Amber gold with an off white head. Aromas are weetabix and light lemon with trace lime. Earthy with peppery hops. Flavours are dry biscuit with weetabix and pithy, bitter lemon. Clean on the palate with peppery spiciness. Not bad.

jmgreenuk (4617) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if i’m honest.

hohops (302) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Orangey amber in colour, a small white head. Hoppy notes in the aroma, a bit of citrus there as well. Taste is fresh and a bit floral, hop bitterness, quite a lingering finish. Pretty good.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at the the Waterfront Inn, Shanklin during the IoW Jolly. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is earthy, toasty, wood, grain, caramel and dirt. The taste is bitter, toasted grain, brown bread, citrus peel and grass with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not bad.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2007
Cask (handpump) , GBBF Day 3, August 2006. Amber colour. Seemed rather short of condition resulting in a slightly dull mouthfeel. Otherwise a pretty standard, slightly earthy British bitter. Not much more to say really. By no means bad but by no means special either.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2009
This is somehow the clearest drink I have ever seen. Simple sweet malty nose with the tiniest hint of hops deep in there somewhere. Nice and thick with very little carbonation which works well with its laid back nature. It has a nice balance but it has nothing particularly worthy of a note home. Lots of neutral cereals and a honeyed finish with some bitterness.

Theydon_Bois (9125) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle split at the Waterfront Inn, Shanklin IOW during the Jolly Dat 24/08/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is on the thin side, corn bread, cereals, pale malt, grain. The taste picks up the pace a little with light vanilla, faint hops, biscuit, mellow fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok bitter.
