COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light gold beer brewed with the ingredients of a lager, but most definitely an ale. Highly refreshing with a lovely subtle hop flavour and aroma, reminiscent of a pilsner.

Cask conditioned handpump Coal Hole London 05/07/13. A golden coloured beer with a tight white head and lace. Excuse my bad manners but this is an ill conceived beer really. Lemony notes but a weird sweetness. Quite plain in the mouth apart from an off-putting fartiness. Not special. One step beyond good in the wrong direction. Don’t select(er) this beer.

Cunningham (4945) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2013

Appearance: Hazy golden color with a white head. Light lacing.
Aroma: Sour fruity and a bit acidic.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation. A bit dry.
Taste: Mild malty, sour fruity and fresh acidic.
Overall impression: Ehhh a beer with a touch of madness. I am not sure it was ment to be like this. And when reading my rating you might think this was bad. It was not. Nice, fresh and tasty actually. But very weird.
Personal stats: On tap at The Globe in Liverpool, England.

Cask, gravity at the end of the day at Bucks County Show, Thursday 29th August 2013 Pours mid gold with very little head, touch warm. Fairly safe easy drinking bitter, with a little soapy hoppiness. Bitterness is fairly low, its fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

bersek (56) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Ikdyž jsem toto pivo testoval spolu z jeho stájovým kolegou nethergatem, trošku pokulhávalo. Chut velmi průměrná a ničim výrazným se mi toto pivo nevrylo do paměti.

jjsint (929) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Light gold, little head. Aroma is raw honey and vinegar. Nicer than it sounds. Taste: balance off, too sweet to be a proper bitter, too sour to appreciate the honey. Nice full palette some may find cloying but I enjoyed it.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Wheatsheaf. Clear slightly brassy gold with a small mottled off-white head. Simple aroma - heather and grass, light alcohol. Taste is a wee bit more bitter, but still golden and light and fairly sweet. Light body and carbonation with a very quick finish - pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 1) Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton, 13/08/13. Bright brassy gold with a loose persistent head. Lager-like shrub and honey aroma with apricot and coriander hints. Jammy with apricot, herb and dunked biscuit. Touch of almost. No idea what that means either. Soft dough like afters with puffed corn. Decent. 2)Bottle from B&M- probably cooked and deserving of a separate entry. Lacy, white-capped clear bonze. Nose of hay, egg custard-like sulphur, dried fruit, maybe apricot. Decent creamy malt; restrained aniseed and dried grass notes; boiled sweets of indeterminate fruit flavour. Drinkable, edging towards (but not quite reaching) enjoyable. 635312.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Cask, The King’s Head, Leicester. Clear gold with a lacy white foam. Aromas are candy sugar with lemon and yeast. Wheat with biscuit and floral notes. Flavours are bready malts with low lemon and a lightly spicy, dry finish. A bit nondescript.

Had on cask at Checkers in Oxford during the 2013 beer festival. This is a drinkable session beer. Not much to it though.
