Nocturne (888) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Cask at Knott Bar, Manchester. Clear golden shade with white head. Nice lacing as well. Soft juicy fruits on the nose. Taste is caramel malt, grapefruit hop linger. Elements are subtle and subdued. Nice enough golden ale but a little unremarkable on the whole.

McNeillR (1329) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2014
Pale golden, decent lacing from a not so full head. Plain lemon, soft fruits a fuzzy malt aroma. Decent crisp malty, lightest bready bitterness. Decent enough carbonation. Grassy as you like on the finish. Not terrible, not incredible.
