Pint at the Turf Tavern in Oxford. This looked good, but tastes very average. Drinkable certainly, worth having again? Not really.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2015
On cask at the Pheasant in Wellington. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head and a slight haze. Nose - meadow flowers, maybe some apple. Taste - stewed apples and light citrus. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a decent ale.

ManVsBeer (8277) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014

Theydon_Bois (16450) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 (2179) - Cambridge, 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.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Nottinghamshire beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol March 2012. Golden in colour with a slight white head. Light aroma of fruit with some grassy hops. Flavour of creamy malts with a sharp finish. Not so pleasant.

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....
