Cask (GBBF2011, Wed)
Very pungent fruity hops. Simple body, lots of light grains. Some wooly bitterness build up and leaves a tingly finish. Decent golden ale.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Fest ’11 with Fin & Hughie. Gold with white head. Dry and bitter, but with a dryish, fruity, slightly plasticy note, I also noted ash at the time. There is a honeyed note with it too. The hop is well represented in the close. it’s fine.

Fin (9601) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 04.02.11 Pours gold with a bubbly white head some sweet fruitiness initially but the expected hops and bitterness never really came through for me, yes there were some light citrus touches but I mentioned to Glen that I found a slight plasticy flavour and note that he found this too. Its not unlikeable but it seems to be a beer that some get on with much more than others do. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask conditioned - handpump - Queen Victoria, Leicester. A golden coloured beer with orange fruity notes in the nose. More hops in the mouth, presumably some cascades in here. Citrus flavours are good.
