Cask at The Royal Oak, Ambleside. Very hopped and strongly fruity. Some citrus, some grapefruit, some toilet disinfectant. Hoppy and delicious - really stood out amongst the plethora of so-so-but-not-outstanding beers on offer.

Cask. Slightly hazy orange, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is tangerine. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is lightly sweet, herbal and grassy, something reminds me of Indian food, not really bitter at all.

Cybercat (3379) - Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber with a decent pale buff head. Malty, hoppy aroma has a fruity overtone. Bold, malty flavor is more than the aroma promises, with fruity and subtle greenwood hop notes and a mildly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is tingly and smooth. Hop on over to your nearest package store or bar for one.

chinchill (1959) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2014
500ml bottle served in a small tulip. Undercarbonated, medium-light body. English style PA in terms of limited hop flavor and bitterness, and earthy/herbal hops. Hoppy for a "golden ale". Clear medium amber with a small, weak head. O. Well crafted if rather tame brew.
