Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear golden, thin bubbly off-white head, no detectable aroma at serving temperature, very mild grassy aroma as it warms, some lacing, grassy, resiny flavour with a hint of citrus, high carbonation, bit thin bodied, bit bland

Bottle from Hopkins-Porter, Ripley Castle. This is a pale straw coloured beer with a slight malty flavour, grassy notes and a slight bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Brown 500ml bottle: BBD 5th Apr 14, poured into a straight sided pint glass (Fosters logo’ed) @ home on 5th Nov 13. Plenty of bubbles rising through the clear golden body: the head a lot deeper and denser than your regular European lager/pilsners and it stayed. The aroma was a blend of mild citrus notes and light maltiness with the taste following on along those lines. Suited the ham sandwich and olives I had for lunch with it. drying hops appear towards the end of each sip giving the beer a fine, refreshing feel. Good body depth for a lager based brew: makes a change for the head to stay until the end of a lager too (even with olive oils on my lips). Recommended if you like to try different lagers.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
Live rate. 500ml bottle from Rhythm N’ Booze, Cleethorpes. Pours brilliant yellow gold with a pillow of white head. Nose lime and curry leaf hop; CO2, thistle sap. Proper Yorkshire watter indeed; JHB-like soapy lime and sap; bready undercarriage, clean bitter finish. Just the right balance of fizz and malt slickness. Way too much citrus for a lager but I’m not complaining. Impressive.

DandyLion (466) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Had this @ Galtres festival. Mild fruity smell, light golden colour. Lemony flavour and maybe a bit peppery quite bitter for a lager. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask, handpump at The Barley Mow, Upper Heyford, Oxon on our last Morris dance-out 22.07.13 Pours straw - pale gold, with white head. A simple light maltiness, slight fruity tang with just a light metallic bite. Sweet and a little dry, its ok. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2013
Generous cask lager white head, pale as straw yellow body and very tight straw nose - nothing untoward, very crisp. Taste is straightforward as you’re going to get, in-distinctive hops on a plain as day malt canvas but with a very bright snip of a finish. Moreish rather than offensive linger, but again nothing major.
I would quite happily have this on cask in any anonymous Yorks boozer, but the selection around it dwarves things a little. Luckily this time it was all Magic Rock gear barring two I’d had before.

Cask, Friends Of Ham, Leeds

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with no head. There was a heavy slug of toffee, caramel right from the start of this, fairly dry. Just bordering on acceptable in here.
