Cask conditioned handpump Three Cocks Kettering 21/08/13. An orange coloured beer with a white bubbly head and lace. A pretty good citrussy beer with nice fruits in nose and good bittering hops in the mouth with a good body. A lot of character and good flavours. Liked it.

jackl (4379) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Cask @ The Great Western during the RB Black Country Bash. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is honeyed bread. A touch of diacetyl, butter. Some cantaloupe. The taste is more cantaloupe, summer fruit salad. Honeyed bread. A bit of grain. Fairly light, approachable. Soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice golden number.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Cask at the Great Western, Wolverhampton. First stop of the RB Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam head. Mild citrusy hop character, some dry bready malts sweetness. Light in body with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with dry, pale bread, some citrus rind. Tasty. A very serviceable bitter.

BOSSbrewer (1482) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Had on cask at Far from the maddening crowd in Oxford. Fairly hoppy ( by British standards) golden colored ale. Fruity notes. A drinkable beer and nice to finally taste some hops.

BlackHaddock (3496) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Great Western, Wolverhampton. Hand-pulled half-pint during the RB Black Country Bus Tour on 6 Jul 2013. Good golden look to the body: medium head that held. Floral to fruity nose with lightly baked malts giving an interesting though fairly weak aroma blend. The taste followed the smells, but stronger, pleasant but no world beater. Semi-sweet feel with a mild bitter finish.

Black Country Beano. Cask in the Great Western. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, semi dry. Light floral tone. Tangy orange over mellow sweet malt. Light marmalade and honey. Light dry finish. Floral aftertaste. Looks and tastes like a Golden. Nice.

Cask conditioned at The Great Western Arms, Wolverhampton. Gold to amber with white head. Flowery, perfumed notes, quite astringent in character, bitter, touch of tartness. I wasn’t over keen on this.
