DanielBrown (3809) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Cask at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Slightly underwhelming. Maybe suffered in comparison to keg pale ale which was vertically sampled. Grainy, sticky, slight honey. OK.

JohnCook101 (319) - - APR 19, 2014
Draft at HDM Huddersfield. Pale straw colour with a decent white head. Floral, soapy aroma. Bitter citrus dominates the flavour, a little malt, some herbal notes and a little pine. Not hugely sophisticated or complex but pretty damn good anyway.

allmyvinyl (3339) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask at Brigantes, York. As Monkeys Love Hops 15. Pale gold, thick white head. Very soapy aromas, which carried through to the taste. Lots of soap, not much malt happening. OK.

Finn (4167) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Port St. Beer House, Manchester 22 Jan 13. Gylden. Litt uklar. Tung fruktaroma. Smaken er tørket frukt. Søt. Svakt syrlig bitter ettersmak.

McNeillR (1209) - SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Light but honest golden with a decent dissipating bubbly head. Neat and peachy/pineapple nose. Rumbling hop, chewy citrus and bitter orange thread. Soft enough carbonation, gripping but oily mouthfeel finishes fairly dry. Clean and simple grassy bitter linger.

Cask, Maltlings, York

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a light amber color with a small white head. The nose is light citrus fruit, some apricot, summery countryside grass. The taste is soft tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple etc. Slightly grassy bitterness. Fairly subdued flavors. A bit soapy. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, not a massively impressive effort. It’s a decent golden ale with some exotic hops thrown into the mix.

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2013
Half pint, hand pulled cask at Port Street Beer House. Nitro cream white head to a clear, copper coloured body. Citrus to the nose. Tropical fruits in flavour with a touch of citrus shells. Dry and smooth bitter ending. Not too thin in the mouth. Good (Manchester, 22.01.2013).

RichardW (1511) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Cask gravity, Microbar BF, Manchester. Pours a cloudy orange. Lovely soft floral aroma, with a faint sulphury flavour. Bitter palate with orange notes late on. Really enjoyable.
