tombyars (1579) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight whif of citric lemon peel in the vanishing aroma. thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a short digestive biscuit base with tart citric fruit notes of weak grapefruit and lemon. Dusty notes from the hop resins builds up in intensity to give a strong metallic ringing tone in the long aftertaste. Finish is too astringent with no body at all. A poor Golden Ale.

imdownthepub (12917) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2004
Cask Conditioned at JDW Banbury. Golden beer with no head. Sweetly malted beer, with a juicyfruit background, like a cheap flavouring in sweets. Dty hoppy foreground saves the day. Average fare.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2002
Bottled. Golden colour – barely carbonated. Mostly malt. Another average beer from the ridiculously long list of bottled ales that Marston’s produce.

RichardGretton (4614) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2002
Rather too flat looking beer, but its malty and hoppy freshness makes this beer worth trying.

rauchbier (3775) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2002
Bottled version. Little aroma, faint malty flavour and a dry uneventful finish.
