DanielBrown (4380) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2005
Hand pulled at the Ale Wagon, Leicester (RB crawl). Very nice aroma, just the sort of thing I like, thick hops and vaguely fruity cleaning products type thing. Very good hops in the mouth - juicy, dry on the finish, light, fresh and crisp. A good Golden to almost kick off this mammoth sesh.

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2005
Cask conditioned at The Ale Wagon, Leicester (RB Crawl). Pale gold beer with bubbly head. The starting beer to a long day, and a good start it was too. Sharp lemon hop aroma which followed into a bitter hoppy beer. Citric and sharp throughout with a good bite. Easy and light on the pallate, great start to the day.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - Ale Wagon Leicester (RB Leicester Crawl). A golden coloured beer with a citrus hop aroma. The taste is snappy and hoppy and reminds me of a JHB. Relatively light bodied but reasonable.

Cask@St Albans BF. Pretty summery. Fresh tropical fruit (kiwi fruit?), slightly floral, decent bitterness, more-ish, but not overly complex.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2004
A fresh and clean gold coloured ale. Dry, with a modicum of citric hop presence but at the softer end of the spectrum. Some tropical fruit nuances in the flavour. Pleasant and refreshing, but not hugely assertive. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.

Gravity, at the St. Albans Beer Festival, 2004
Pale golden colour, fruity pineapple and hop aroma, rather nice. Crisp, fresh hop bitterness that is refreshing.
