maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Last Plantaganet Leicester. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. Very little in the aroma. A bit of graininess. Sweetish in the mouth with a touch of toffee and banana. A decent body but as a beer it’s too safe.

[3164-20100727] Cask. Not much aroma, a little yeast and a little citrus peel. Clear, light orange body with a quick foamy white head and light lacing. Bitter orange flavour. Medium body has a lingering bitterness after. Fine but not much seems to be going on.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Cask at the Trumpet, Evesham. This gold-coloured beer is almost an IPA. The aroma suggests citrus which is also evident in the flavour which also has some resin character and lots of fruity malt.
