harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2011

Oakes (11779) - 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 it’s strange in construction but ok overall.

Leighton (9833) - 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.

imdownthepub (9623) - 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.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico on 5 February 2011. Pale gold colour. Very slight haze. Extremely fresh grassy hop aroma. Sharp citrus on the palate. Admirably crisp and thirst-quenching. Pleasant lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. A very promising first experience.

Fin (7013) - 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

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Cask handpull, The Ivy Leaf, Dartford, Kent, 20/04/13. Half of Pops MacDrunkeasy’s pint necked in seconds. Brilliant straw piled unevenly with foam. Nose passion fruit and lemon zest. Passion fruit, curry leaf, limey hop zip with a sweet biscuit and peanut malt base. Massive relief after the crap up the road.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
August 12, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Craft Beer Co (Brixton). Clear slightly pale gold with a small drool of off-white head. Simple slightly honey-sweet grassy golden with a hint of mineral tang; Tate follows, some nice bright citrus notes and a little breadiness to the malt - a little alcohol there for sure. Light astringent mouthfeel, good airy carbonation, finishes dry and grassy, medium length only. Not amazing but very pleasant and easy to drink. Good house beer.
