BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Pub crawl around Wellington (Shropshire) 10th Feb 2012: pub number three had this on hand pull, so a pint was downed. Clear light golden colour: another beer that from a distance looked like a lager. Aroma was floral hop with hints of citrus sourness. The taste was also more hop than malt: OK but nothing special. Too many of this type of beer on the market at the moment. This one ticks all the boxes but does very little: Mr Average I’m afraid.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in ’4th’ Wellington Beer Festival ’10. This was under the name ’Blue Topaz’, but I strongly suspect it was this beer. Gold. Hoppy aroma. taste is more interesting than anticipated: grapefruit, flint and nettle lead into a mid bitter finish.

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Small bubbly white head & a pale, clear yellow body. Zesty lemon & orange profile. Crisp & slightly toasty on the tongue. Yup, it’s a decent golden. Nicely rounded in the mouth: soft mouthfeel, light body & a lingering hop bite.
