tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Tasted this in the Fox & Hounds, Houston in May 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral hops present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives citric fruit notes of lemon and limes, grapefruit and honeydew melon. Dry dusty hops give a bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is malty and warming with a hit of mead. An excellent summer session bitter.

2nd January 2009. Bottle. Clear gold beer - not much head. Crisp palate. Just a tiny bit of hop aggression. The honey is supposed to give a sweet finish but only manages to prevent a bitter one. A bit watery.

Cask, Newark Fest 09. Golden orange with a small white head. Aromas are toffee malts with honey and resinous lemon. Some biscuit with light spices and floral notes. Flavours are biscuit malts with citrus and dark honey. Fairly sweet with herbal notes. Decent.

RichardGretton (4639) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2009
Cask@Newark Beer Festival, 2009. Orangey/amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly honey and hopped, and the flavour is mildly rich, hopped and fruity. Overall a nice fruity and hopped honey beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
Cask, gravity, at 7th Devonshire Arms Beer Festival, Bedford. Dark gold with a malt aroma. Sweet malty taste with a mid bitter finish. Bit too much fizz, I thought.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Cask at The White Horse, Harborne, Birmingham. Slightly cloudy amber with a short head. A lovely flowery citrus scent, mainly of tangerine. Decently bitter with a dry end. Grapefruit and oranges in the mouth, with a hint of the honey (but not as much as I expected). Really quite good.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2008
Cask at paisley beer fest. Alround rating: Standard golden bitter, honey and grassy hay hop. Decent but lacks character.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Quite sour aroma, kinda like gueuze or something, but not as pleasant. Palate does show some of this ourness, but it has a sugary honey flavour, which i was expecting. Quite dry, with some slight yeastyness and quite carbonated as well.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - The Globe Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma is sweet and honeyed. Not overly sweet like a lot of beers with honey in. The taste is quite smooth and the honey sweetness comes through. Decent.

Golden yellow colour ... Tight white head ... lots of grapefruit hop in front ... light malty honey linger.
