Piekna drobna biala piana, jakis skromny lacing jest. Aromat herbaty z cytryna, ziołowy, chmiel. Rześkie, odświeżający lekki herbaciano-cytrynowy smak, wysycenie średnio wysokie, długo pozostający posmak

Beer5000 (5187) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2015
500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a small but lacing off-white head. Light aroma with malt and a hint of fruit. Flavor is mild pale malt, some fruit, low bitterness and slightly metallic. Thin body and not much aftertaste. Plain, boring, one-dimensional and already forgotten.

teorn88 (3964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Backlog rating. Cask at Well & Bucket, London. It pours a hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with citrus peel, grass, tart apricots and hay. Taste is bitter and grassy with pint hops, grapefruit, grains, biscuit. Finishes dry and bitter, grainy. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty

Nothing special to write home about. Even though I like cask ales, there is something wrong when its about craft beer,

Nov 2014 - Cask at Draft House. Pale orange, light haze, still, big white head, light lacing. Aroma is musty perfume. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is semisweet caramel, musty bitterness, tangy and drying hop...hard to describe it more precisely. Top condition. Lovely balanced beer with my sort of flavours. (3.7)

Apr 2015 - Cask at Carpenters Arms, Fitzrovia. Flavour is light, pale malts, light astringency. Hmm, big difference. Conditioning or batch variation? (3.1)

Aurelius (4723) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Nice UK pint bottle, OK label. Foggy, oaky gold-blonde brew with a lacy white head. Resinous, lemony, dry caramel aroma, with alphalpha. Overwrought, hoppy flavor. Somewhat sour, mostly dry, immature hoppiness -- like sucking on pelletized hops. Body is a bit over medium weight. Warming and citrus on the backend. Eagle’s Landing Bottle Shop, Stockbridge, GA.

500ml bottle, pours golden brown with a white head. Floral and citrus hop aromas balanced with caramel malt. A good tasty session beer.

Cask in the Town Street Tavern, Horsforth. Straw coloured with a white head. A pleasant bitter hoppy pale ale. Citrus notes. Simple but OK.
