Cask at Roscoe Head, Liverpool. Toasty golden brown. Almost no head. Muted but distinct aroma of Cascadey grapefruit. A bit of grainy malt, almost reminiscent of a Dortmunder. Sweet taste with bitter edges. A bitter finish and aftertaste. A bit of natural carbonation, otherwise weak and unexciting palette. A passable but unremarkable ale.

Had various times at a few different pubs in the Tyne and Wear area. Very nice Blonde ale and recommended if you can’t decide on anything else.

Theydon_Bois (9725) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Cask at the 7 Stars, Rugby, 04/06/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white head that retains well, good lacing ensues. Nose is orange peel, lemon rind, lgiht floral rinse, straw. Taste comprises orchard fruit, green apple, straw, pretty twiggy bitter material and far from the typical GB fayre, quite a shift from the nose. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. So so affair.

Light tan, bubbly, has a light spicy hop, pale & biscuity malts, good balance. Decent refreshment.

Pint at the Old Fox Felling. Golden with a white cap. Lemon citrus and sports biscuit aroma. Similar flavour with a bit of grass. Quite a juicy mouth-feel. Good take on a familiar style.

AshtonMcCobb (2814) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a slight haze snd a decent head. Nose - malty with a slight hint of lemon but definite honey things. Taste - as with nose. Palate - not clean on the finish but relatively balanced apart from that. Overall - solid

mR_fr0g (3651) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask at the Henry Addington canary wharf. Golden ale with a persistent white head. Aroma is fairly standard, nutty malt some English yeast ester. Flavour is slightly grassy hop astringent stale malt. A bit boring but pleasant enough.
