Leighton (18529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a tight, white cream head. Dry hay nose, light grass and crackery pale malts. Light sweet flavor with lots of crackers ad biscuits, dry hay. Straw, light grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Crisp, clean finish, plenty more dry, crackery malts, bitter hay, light dirt, some fresh grass, biscuits. Just a really, really well rounded golden ale. Actually picks up speed as you work your way through it.

Oakes (15664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Light bronze. Fruity ( orange) and herbal (savoury) hop nose. Slightly sweet up front, middle has just a splash of English hops. So its strange in construction but ok overall.

Cask @ Craft Beer Co. Clapham. Clear very pale yellow color, small white head that leaves good lacing. Smell and taste lightly malts, nicely hoppy, nicely fruity. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice.

Cask (Craft, Islington)
Simple citrussy hop aroma, pleasantly bitter, nice sweet malts, but alas some diacetyl. Pretty boring golden ale. Just about interesting enough to not be actually bored by it. Sarah disagreed - "horrible"!

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest 12. Gold with white head. There is a touch of sulpher on the nose, slightly farmy, but this leads to a crisp hoppy, lemony loveliness. Dry, zingy hops dominate, lasting on the palate on a light maltiness. A little belter.

Fin (9601) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 17th & 18th February 2012 Gold in colour with white head, good clarity. Hoppy & bitter but not overly bitter, a little softness and with a nice seam of lemonyness throughout. This beer surprised a lot of folk and was a real hit, great session beer, possibly just a little sweet for me, but very likeable. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7
