Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, - 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

The_Osprey (6600) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Cask at Priorty Arms, Stockwell as ’Kent Pale’, 4%. Pale yellow, clear, bubbly white head. Aroma is bready wort, soft citrus, dried out lemon. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is a touch soapy, biscuity wafer malt, wort and malt sugars, soft bitterness. Mild and sweet. Has a touch of my homebrew about it - simple malt sugars and hop flowers and not much complexity coming from anywhere. But it’s still a very drinkable beer.

sir__v (2148) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 13, 2016
On cask @ Stormbird, London - UK. Color: clear golden blond beer with no carbonation and really small white foam. Smell: nice malt nose, good cereal and bread balance. Sweet enough, superb nose. Taste: light body with good malt taste with cereal and sweet notes. Well balanced with hops, grassy and floral. Very tasty, good attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet hoppy and wet bitterness. Superb pale!

FatPhil (14122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2015
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"!

Oakes (15806) - 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.
