OleR (4767) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2010
0.5L bottle bought@Utobeer, London. Tall and foamy snowy white head. Hazed, shimmering yellow body. Dough and white bread on the nose. Also a whiff of grassy/hayish hops. Taste is fairly dry with a clean, doughy and bready malt base. Grassy and faint citrussy hops in the backbone. Light-bodied without being thin. Quite fizzy in the mouth. Short, but fresh and dry ending.

Cask conditioned air dispense Euston Tap London. A golden beer with a big white head. A devilishly lively pour to this beer with a suggestion of shallowing. Hops are present but not massive. There’s a subtle lemon flavour. It’s OK but needs balls. I drank Boddingtons over 20 years ago when it was an indepenant brewery and I have to say my memories of it are better than my experience today.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear yellow with a mild, white head. Doughy malts on the nose with some citrus and straw hops. Lightly sweet with modest, tart citrus and straw bitterness. Light in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Finishes with faint sweetness and lingering earth and resinous hops. Picks up speed late. Pretty good.

From cask at the brewpub. Pours clear and pale yellow with a small, creamy, lacing and white head. Aroma is crisp citrusy hoppy, light grassy touch. Citrusy and bitter flavoured, subdued sweetness. Ends crisp bitter and citrusy fruity.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Pours with a head typical of gravicask: fluffy, bubbly & lasting, white in colour with a delicately hazy gold body. Brilliant, crisp grapefruit & lemon hop aroma. Crisp hop flavour profile: lemon, a bit of sherbet with a lingering finish. Light, drinkable body (and I could easily have gone for more), light to medium carbonation and a decent length end. A really lovely, straight up but standout bitter.

tommann (2601) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is pineapple and piney hops. Tropical fruits to start and a nice piney hoppy finish with medium bitterness. Drinks above it’s strength. Very impressed.

Thanks to Ethereal for the half pint! Cheers Casper! Clear pale gold beer with a residual suddy head. Light semi dry palate. Sweetish banana cream base for a little citric hop. Nice! Finishes dry.

Cask (@ King’s Arms, Hawkshead): Yellow coloured with a smaller white head; distinctive hoppy-lemony nose; light bodied, moderate to robust bitter-sweet flavour; dry lingering aromatic hoppy finish. Superb......
