1/2 at Gateshead ’spoons. Hazy gold with a dense white head. Grapefruit in the aroma, and predominantly in the flavour, tempered by sauvignon blanc flavour, and a candy aftertaste.Lots of tangy bite, fuller-bodied than you might expect. At the first sip I thought"Oh well, another of those grapefruity blond ales that are so ubiquitious at the moment", but this is more than the sum of its parts. Nice beer

Cask @ the Whoda through it Rochester: I drank this with an irritating old family friend called Steve. He was lamenting the fact that my dad had got wasted and told him he hated his ass! This beer wasn’t exciting enough to make his moaning seem bearable. A nice floral hop aroma, almost tropical; golden beer, fruity hos and sweet malt but it’s a bit thin for me

Cask at the St. Albans Beer Festival 2013. Poured a light amber colour, slightly hazy and with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, floral hop and slightly stale malt. Initial flavours are malt heavy with caramel sweetness and some grass. Finish is dry grain, pine and a light metallic edge.

(Cask at Pikkulintu, 20130301) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, grass and dried straw. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. A very stylewise correct and nice English bitter.

Cask handpull, The Felix, Nuneaton, 17/11/12. Creamy gold lined with lace. Lemon curd and weak flowers on nose. Floral, lemon zest, tweak of smoke, deep biscuit notes. Slightly astrigent afters. Doesn’t convince.
