Pint from cask at Britannia Hotel 08.05.15. Clear golden. Dense, even and lingering off-white head and lacing. Aroma of grains, yeast and some hops. Similar and fruity taste, with lots of pale malt.

Light amber colour. Malt, a bit of citrus, and hop aroma. Very good balance, with nice, carmel malt and decent though not very strong hops.

Cask at The Adam & Eve, Petty France, London. A straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Vague hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, malty, a little caramel with a slight bitterness. Not one to remember that’s for sure.

Cask - Was touted as a tart beer but this is anything but tart. Very dry taste, no malt sweetness or hops. Really a bland flavor on this beer.

reggiedunlop (3650) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a creamy medium white head. Aroma has light sweet straw notes with earthy and grassy hops...a bit of a stringent scent. Flavor is grassy/earthy and fairly bitter...stringent doesn’t come through in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and lightly hoppy.

Sjohnh (726) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Sampled close to its home, in the heart of the Lake District. Golden and slightly cloudy, with a good head and a creamy mouthfeel. Not much aroma; taste is mostly of malt, softened by a touch of caramel. Slightly bitter finish.
