Clear golden beer with a thin head. Scent is a faint citrus. Taste is citrus too but with a sour, grapefruit edge and light hop. Very drinkable.

jamesie1857 (1944) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Cask at The James Watt Greenock - clear yellow body, thin white head. Nose is a metalic citrus, a bit of sweet caramel. Taste is sharp lemon and a bit prickly. Oddly enough very refreshing.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Cask at Brentwood hotel , Aberdeen. It pours deep golden with a small white head. The nose is toasted grain, sweet, red grape and sticky toffee pudding. The taste is bitter, toasty, grain, lemon peel, soapy edge and gooseberry with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent enough.

Theydon_Bois (16671) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man May ’14 BF, Englefield Green, 22/05/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is orchard fruit, green apple, toffee. Taste follows, straw, earthy stuff, twigometer rising to amber but certainly more in the flavour than the aroma. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close. So so affair.

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
On tap at the Grosvenor. Appearance - golden with a nice head. Nose - very faint lemon and cream. Taste - a lot more going on. Some tangy orange and malt notes. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - yeah this one got better. Always a good motto to perservere.
