JorgeLee (1639) - Greater London, - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle. A pale yellow gold ale, this has quite a coarse grainy and slightly yeasty feel to it. The finish is a bit better with a decent hop bite. Ok. Rerate, GBBF 2013. Forgot I’d had this rather average beer before. Less grainy/yeasty this time, maybe because on cask, but still a bit dull.

Leighton (17461) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2013, day 3 - London. Pours clear gold with a slight, white foam head. Grainy pale malts in the nose, hints of dry orange. Light sweet flavor with fairly juicy citrus, some pale bread sugars. Light in body with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced to finish, with some orange, nips of mango, light grains, bitter hay. Solid.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Cask at The Bishop’s Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.05/pint. Pale, golden beer with slight lingering haze and cappuccino style, white head. Aroma is powerfully rural with grass, hay, earth, dirt and flowers. Malt and cereal dominate the flavour with a chunky biscuit finish and light floral hop notes that come into play more in the second half of the pint with dry, puckering mouthfeel. Pleasant and very easy to drink.

BlackHaddock (5755) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Cask pint, hand-pulled in a Alnwick pub on 23rd Oct 2014. Light golden body, clear and bright with a good white head that produced some heavy lacing. Mild nose of light malts and mini citrus hoppiness, dry finish to the taste that was an almost bland blend of not much. A bit thin and tasteless.

Tarosama (80) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Cask @ The Boathouse, Clear golden colour, light body, floral, grassy finish. Freshness is the key…Just like any beer…

JefVerstraete (2683) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2014
Cask @ pub in Wooler. Golden colour, white foam. Creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Sweet aroma of caramel with light bitter finish. Malty body. Nothing special.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Cask at Thomson’s. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas of dusty malt and light butterscotch. Taste has herbal hop bitterness, caramel sugar sweetness. Light body & texture. OK.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Cask Gosling Bridge Carlisle. Bittersweet malty beer, with an unusual background light smokiness. Well bodied, slight apple and pear flavours. Unusual but reasonable.
