BlackHaddock (6226) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
500ml bottle at home on 1st April 2016. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass pint tankard. Clear and clean golden body, the head a full white blanket of foam. Strange aroma and taste, Saison like farmyard esters and flavours: wasnít expecting that. Some malty sweetness within the flavouring, honey like flavourings too. Not the best Grainstore beer for me by a long, long way.

wheresthepath (2104) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Cask at the Draperís Arms, Peterborough. Deep gold with a thin white head. Sweet caramel with just a smidgen of dusty dry leaves and a hint of bitterness. Really not much to it. Below par golden but drinkable.

jjsint (2261) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Cask at the Bankers Draft, Bedford. A nice-looking beer: clear pale yellow with a head that is neither too tight nor too foamy. Tropical/lemon aroma with a hint of soap. Taste is better, bittersweet and slightly astringent with a dry almost woody finish. Light mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead.Golden largery colour with a thin silky white head Honey and cereal aroma, like a tasty flapjack or breakfast bar. Same sort of flavour with sauvignon wine and blueberries, and Iím a sucker for sauvignon and blueberries in a blond ale. Nice and summery.
