Cask, Dispensary, Liverpool. Clear amber looks with a nice creamy lingering white head. Great juicy fruit n hop in the nose and flavour. Maybe some notes of kiwi, or did i imagine that ? Great condition, sparkling stuff. Big lingering hop bitter finish. Hugely drinkable.

Cask at Craft Beer Co. Pours pale gold, white foamy head. Nose is big and bold hoppy pale ale. Gooseberry and grapefruit with lime, spice and pinewood. Taste is grapefruit and gooseberry bitter fruit and spicy woody notes. One of the best British versions of a pale ale Ive ever had. Excellent.

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Aroma is pine pot pourri crossed with a fresh flowery summer meadow.. lots of citrus & pine with a resinous aftertaste.. not too full on mind, but a very fresh juicy beer nonetheless.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Clear, pale goldd with a bubbly white head. Quite an enthralling nose. Interesting hops featuring penny bubble gum and custard. The body is a little watery with little to no malt flavour. The hops are powerful and I was left with a fairly strong bitter finish. Quite nice. The hops were unusual enough to make it interesting.

Niall73 (1866) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Cask at Earl of Essex, Islington. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity with funky earthy veg. Medium body mild carbonation. It's fusty, grassy, a bit of melon, grapefruit, ash. Nice bitter finish. Slightly unusual, but tasty enough. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Murky gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and floral hit with a very dry finish. Loads of hops here but lacked the depth and balance of ghe Hardknot Infra-Red Id had just before, and maybe suffered by comparison. Still decent though.
