JorgeLee (1271) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Cask in the King’s Head W2. Bright golden beer with white head, looked quite appetising. Fairly standard English golden ale, some dryness in the finish, not especially hoppy. Decent enough pint but dull.

on tap at the little dudley house. in my opinion, a bit better than TEA with a bit more flavour. hoppy but also slightly zesty.

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - clear deep golden, thin white head, minimal fruity aroma, rather bland, easy to drink

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 17, 2012 - on handpull at The Charles Dickens - as Hogs Back Hop. Clear coppery gold with a small creamy off-white head. Smells like grassy corn syrup with a bit of alcohol - taste follows, slightly harsh. Slick and syrupy and thin on the tongue, very little carbonation, with a harsh sweet finish. Not nice.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and cut grass in the short aroma. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit note laced with soft caramel. Floral hop resins give a herbal note to the long dry aftertaste. Finish is again dry with lemon fruit notes present. An ok session Golden Ale.
