Spoons Fest. Clear gold - amber beer. Low carbonation. Fairly neutral palate. Even malt and light hops. Well balanced but lacking any complexity or zing. Some condition would be good!

bobinlondon (1286) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Amber with a thin white head. Stars and stripes logo on pumpclip and mention of cascade in the festival programe suggested that this could be something different from GK. WRONG!!!!

Cask @ JDW Southport. A clean, crisp beer in the ’Golden’ style. I liked the aftertaste, which I’m not sure how to describe. I got hops and some pleasant yeastiness in the mouth. I wasn’t impressed with this beer at the start but it grew on me. Had it not been compeing with some excellent competition @ JDW’s beer festival I may have rated it more highly.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker St ’Sporks.
Clean dark gold with a decent off white head. All downhill from here sadly. bready, fruity, not much happening. Christ on a bike I really can’t be bothered. Had worse but it’s just a masterpiece of mediocrity. Crap.

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton A copper coloured beer with a thick white head and lacing. The aroma has a hint of banana together with some yeast. Non-descript yeasty taste with dishwater notes and a little late bitterness. Thin
