jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Cask at the Orange Tree, Baldock. Dark gold, clear and pretty much flat. Punchy grass aroma with light citrus. Taste is pleasantly bittersweet with an astringent hit at the end of the sip. Medium to long finish. An incredibly simple drink, but it works well enough. Iíve had some iffy cask Cascade-led beers in my day, and this is a decent drop.

Cask at the Piccadilly Tap, Manchester. Pours clear golden with a white head. Grassy aroma with citrus. Very dry bitter finish. Not sure this is at its best.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
On cask at Duke William, Burslem. Pours golden with white head. I think this may be my favourite of Mallinsons single hop beers Iíve tried so far. Very fragrant, nice hop balance and easy drinking.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Station, Oakengates on 19th Nov 2014. Golden pour with a full white crown on top. The nose and taste were citrus led with a floral and tropical fruit feel to both also. easy to drink and although a little too citrusy for my palate I quite enjoyed this. Bitter and dry finish, obviously in good condition and looked after in the cellar.

Bottle from Jacks, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, Tuesday 21st January 2014 consumed at Bath Marina Campsite, Saturday 25th January in Frank (camper) Pours sparkling gold with a clean white head, this looks spectacular. A little soapy hop at first but the hop pushes on a little more. Citrussy with lemon showing, bitter and dry, very little sweetness. Good! A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Diaphanous gold (with the bits in) under a slim white cap. Aroma orange squash, pine resin, green herb and raw fennel. Soapy and lime barley squash-like with moderate condition, underlying suggestions of monkey nut and a bitter floral finish. One of the lesser Mallinsons single hop efforts; maybe Cascade just needs company.

JohnCook101 (535) - - DEC 1, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is dull floral. Flavour is uncomplicated; citrus, floral notes, pine resin. Slightly watery middle section and a moderate to heavy bitter finish. Carbonation is moderate, medium bodied with a slightly slick mouthfeel. Decent, but not Mallinsonís best.
