maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - JUN 19, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester. A pale blonde beer with a white head. This is an insipid thin yeasty wheaty beer. Mineral notes. Really poor nothing ness. I’ve just checked the cyclops page for this beer. It has Cascade and Liberty. God knows where and how little of either. I just don’t get hop note at all just like other raters.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Cask at the 7 Stars, Rugby, 12/03/14. Clear pale golden blonde with a good sized white head - the best aspect of this one! Nose is pale malt, straw, light lemon zest, grainy, corn. Taste comprises light citrus, grass, bread dough, pale malt, cereal. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close. Medicority in a glass, bland and dull, akin to a pale lager!

jjsint (927) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Cask @ Hop & Vine, Hull. Yellow gold. Clear with a decent showing of a white head. Very faint aroma. A bit of lemon, spruce, soap. Taste is ok, nothing out of the ordinary. Sweet at first rounding to a bitter finish with a hint of sour. As boring pale beers go, this is at least clean and refreshing.

Howellsey (13) - - FEB 1, 2012
Cask-The Milsom Rhodes, Didsbury. A disappointing beer. Very pale golden with a creamy head and a fruity aroma. Tasted bland, no hoppiness at all and an unpleasant lingering overly malty aftertaste....
