Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Clean and tasty gold ale. There’s some light grassiness in the aroma, the taste is slightly earthy but there’s a little citrusy grapefruit and a dry papery finish. Great session strength beer, with enough character and taste to keep drinking and enjoying.

Bottle BBE: Apr 2016. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber body with medium, creamy, tight, off-white head. Medium-light biscuity aroma with limey citrus and a hint of cardboard. Medium-heavy sweetness and very little bitterness. Very light-bodied with a silky texture, low carbonation and no finish. Maybe a bit too cold to take anything from this. Very light and bland.

On cask at Dog and Gun, Keswick (as "Keswick Woof and Bang") - Hazy straw body, thick pillowy white head. Lots of citrus at the top of the aroma, with a grassiness and resinous at the back. Taste is equally grassy, but has a decent hoppy kick to pull it out of the bland. Unspectacular, but refreshing.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Langstrath Country Inn, Stonethwaite, Cumbria. Gold with white head. Sweetish, honeyed, fruity beer, light and fairly flowery with just a finishing bitterness. Very decent after a long haul over Greenup Edge, I had several.

Cask. Branded "Woof & Bang". 3.6. Amber gold with a thick white head. Nose is banana and citrus fruits. Creamy mouth feel with banana, wheat and grapes. Light and easy with a mid bitter finish. Quaff, quaff, quaff.

gegwilson (3200) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Cask in Eaten by Monsters, Carlisle. Deep golden with a good off-white head. Not much to report about the flavour. A citrusy beer with a little toast that’s pretty bland and watery.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2014
50cl bottle from Ambleside Wines. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - mostly pale malt but just a hint of citrus. Taste - a bit more citrus but still dominated by pale malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and quite a pleasant finish though more bitterness would not have been amiss. Overall - very sessionable if a little uninteresting.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, yeast and a little apple. Yeasty flavour with caramel, hay and barley. Quite a dry finish with low carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter. Just OK.
