Mild, flat, dusty mouthfeel. Dryish fruity orangey grape aftertaste with floral resiny notes. Fresh sawdust, too. Nice, vivid, highly drinkable. (0.568l cask at Lamb & Lion Inn, York.)

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Hand pulled at Craven Arms, Brum. Golden (no effing surprises there, you unctuous ponce). Very pleasant I thought. The flavours are not the strongest, but there is a real sense of integrity vis a vis the hop blend. The ingredients really work apros pos achieving surround tastebud enhancement. The ingredients attract me. I like it. I want to drink.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2011
[cask at the Lamb and Lion, York] Bright golden ale with decent white head. Malty aroma with not much hop in evidence. Same on the taste, pretty malt-forward for a golden ale. Some slight earthiness in evidence, together with a sharp finish. Not too bad, but I wouldn’t rush back for more than a couple [02082011]

This beer hails from the Lamb and Lion Inn in York, though I sampled it at The Green Man, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Gold with a small white head. Odd aroma I can only describe as burnt match. Oily, smooth, rather neutral taste, presumably malt, with a mid bitter finish. Really rather unsubtle.
