Theydon_Bois (9990) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence, 05/05/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose carries pale malts, summer fruit, touch of wheat, citrus. Taste comprises pale malt, wheat, light sugar, citrus notes, summer fruit - pretty much marries the aroma. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dryish finish. Ok - drinkable but on the bland side.

tombyars (1412) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale golden straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong citric aroma, long on the nose. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a biscuity malt base with zesty fresh notes of juicy pineapple and lychees. Aromatic hop resins give a citric bite to the aftertaste and compliments the malt well. Finish is fruity with dry grapefruit pith giving a slight note of astringency. A decent Golden Ale.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2011
Fra cask på Crosse Keys (JDW), Bank 20 Mai 11. Dyp brun. Nesten sort. Lavt kremaktig skum. Behagelig røstet aroma. Smaken sammensatt: Litt røstet malt. Litt kaffe. Tørr røstet ettersmak. Godt øl!

wheresthepath (1622) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2011
[Cask at the William Robert Loosley (JDW), Wycombe] Gold, slight fizz, small white head. Hay, an industrial lager-like taste, a hint of lemon and then loads of cardboard. Very poor effort from what is normally a reliable brewery.
