harrisoni (13619) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle at Chriso Easter Tasting 2012. pale amber lasting white head. Not at all bad. Lacks a bit of body. But has some hops on finish. Ok

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Picked it up at Waitrose. Pours clear, pinkish-red-gold with a faint, white foam head and plenty of effervescence. Light malt nose, faint toast and sugar. Light to medium sweet flavor, some caramel, bread, faint fruits (berries). Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sugary finish, more lightly toasted malts, light wet earth, and a bit more dull caramel. It’s low alcohol stuff, but it could still be better.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Bottled, 500ml pasteurised from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite a thin, simple, sweetish beer, fruity light hop, short on the palate, almost no follow through. Nothing special.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Bottled 08/03/13. A copper coloured beer with a white head. Caramel and cardboard in the nose. Sweetish sugar water notes in the mouth. A thin body. Not nasty but dull. There is a reasonable fruitiness. Moving on.

Theydon_Bois (8327) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Keg at Lords, I was really pushing the boat out to celebrate Roots Daddy ! 13/06/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show. Nose is bready, pale malts, light fruit rinse, not much depth, inoffensive and forgetabble! Taste cranks up ever so slightly, malt base, fruit notes, bready pangs, light berry fruit, faint caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a light fruit rinse. So so keg bitter, as expected, not unpleasant just not a lot doing.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Golden brown with an off white head. Aromas are light biscuit and weetabix malts with lemon and hints of lime. Dusty yeast with some black tea and background toffee. Flavours are sweet biscuit and grain with quite an amount of citrus. Dry on the finish with soda water. More like a shandy than the Shandy Ale. OK.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Clear yellow, mid-sized head. Malt flavours dominate, with some shy but quite ok hop flavours in the finish. Easy-drinking lightweight.
