Had a pint last week 08/13 not as good as previous and that was from a reputable ale pub. Not sure whether would buy again.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Cask at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Clear pale golden with moderate off white edgework and spotting. Nose is pale malt, light citric, straw. Taste comprises straw, pale malt, light cereals, citric pangs. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. So so - golden blonde surely not a bitter??!!??

GBBF Day 1. Cask. Lightly haze gold beer, untidy off white head. Palate is light and semi dry and a little crisp. Light pale malts. Hops are slightly lemony. Mild floral tones. Light dry finish. Okay.

Osprey87 (1732) - WALES - AUG 12, 2014
Cask at GBBF. Pale yellow, clear, still, just a ring of white head. Aroma of sick, lager. Body is medium to light with a touch of carbonation. Taste is light, watery malt. OK overall, despite the dodgy aroma.

Scopey (6909) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2014. It pours clear golden with a tiny white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, grainy, toast, sto e fruits, oats and dough. The taste is smooth, lightly bitter, grainy, mild sourness, oat, hay and citrus peel with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Fine.

allmyvinyl (3429) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Cask at The Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Pours clear golden brown, thin off-white head. Dusty malty aromas. Taste is bitter in a bad way - astringent. Unbalanced. Didn’t enjoy this.

mighty_meadow (207) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Looks good but is sadly one dimensional. Quite dry as promised but the hops don’t particularly stand out. Slightly different as the over riding flavour is lime. Nice but not great.

Holmen2 (939) - NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
From cask at Castle Tavern, Inverness. Clear dark golden. Moderate aroma and taste of orange and lime marmelade, with equally moderate bitterness in aftertaste. OK.
