weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask. Settled to a clear golden colour with a medium off white head. Standard hoppy English golden ale but a good enough example. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, floral notes, fair bit of hops. Pretty bitter and clean long hoppy finish.

jamesie1857 (1374) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
On keg at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Clear gold body with a foamy white head. Gentle nose of grapefruit with some citrussy hops. Flavour was a sweeter fruit with a long bitter finish. Not bad.

minutemat (1508) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Cask @ The Salopian, Shrewsbury. Light citrus pale with a very subtle hop profile, fresh, but fairly bland at the same time. Expected more from Hardknott.

EdKing (1848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Cask in Kings Head, Clapham. Light golden amber ale, thin to medium white head. Nose is slight grain and grapefruit hop with grassy notes. Taste is light citrousy grapefruit, grassy, straw and light grain husk, slightly soapy.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Cask. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and caramel malts along with some fruity, floral and herbal notes. Flavour is rather sweet nectary with some tropical fruits, mild grass and a bit floral notes along with some sweet malts as well.Wellbalanced, and surprisingly bodied for being only 3.8 %.

maeib (8658) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 15/02/13. A golden coloured beer with a white bubbly head. A sharp hoppy beer verging on harsh but just about managing to avoid that. Good tropical citrus stuff throughout. A nicely brewed hoppy almost challenging beer. Lots of flavour for 3.8%

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Cask-conditioned and unfined at the Three Tuns, Bristol 25/07/2012. Clear gold in colour with a decent, white head. Light aroma of grapefruit with some grassy hops. Flavour had sweetish fruit, cereal malts and a lingering bitter finish. Fine.

wimpyjoe (3744) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
It retains a full bitterness although the ale is slightly sour in the palate.

dogbomb (940) - ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Cask at SIBA festival. Pale gold with an off white tight froth. Grapefruit and green vegetables on the nose. Summery crisp salad notes in the mouth. Very light and breezy but a pleasant bitter lime kick in the finish.
