Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Can at home in London - picked up at Borough Wines in Hackney. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a creamy, white head. Grainy malts in the nose, a little apple, ripening citrus. Light sweet flavour with further pale grains, white bread, fine grassy bitterness. Light bodied with massaging carbonation. Finishes with more grassy bitterness, simple pale bread, lightly husky grains, light apple, orange peel. A little too bitter in the aftertaste. So so overall.

Theydon_Bois (16472) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Cask at Hilden Fest 2012 - 25/08/12. Slightly hazed copper orange in colour - not a pale ale in my book! Sweet malt nose leaning towards caramel. Tastes a little of ripe tangy fruit with a bitter sweet finish, medium body with a commensurate level of carbonation.

imdownthepub (12917) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This is a sharp, dry, heavily hopped beer. There is a good crisp biscuity body, light with a baked bread note. This carries a spicy, peppery hop flavour, quite intense and bitter. Really very good.

DSG (11399) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 24, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Tom L. Golden with a white head. Awful aroma of butter and creamed corn. Sweetish flavor with diacetyl, corn, and a drier unpleasant bitterish finish. Diacetyl mouthfeel. Awful.

JorisPPattyn (9252) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
Draught Dense white head over faintly veiled orange beer. Fruity nose with citrus, but also strawberry, somewhat toasted malts. Bitter, bitter vegetables and kumquat. Medium bodied, well-carbonated. Despite the hops, quite clean flavourprofile. Quite good, better even seen its ABV.
