Fin (8531) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Cask handpump at The Brasenose, Cropredy at the Fairport Fringe at Fairports Annual Reunion Festival 2015, Thurs 13th in company of Nellie, Alec, Ferret, Dena, Boris, Julie, Bev, Bob, Claire, Isobel and Berry. (hope I havenít forgot anyone. This turned out to be a far better beer than I was anticipating. It was golden with a wonderful lively clear white foamy head. Juicy citrus and a reasonable bitterness but just fell back with a bit too much biscuit at the end. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

ladnewton (1650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Cask at the Broomfield Tavern, Coventry on 27th October 2014. Blonde with shallow white lacing foam. Floral hop/elderflower aroma with fine grapefruit. Lush grapefruit in-moth with floral notes. A late grass touch. Dry, hoppy finish; bitterness stronger the larger the mouthful sipped. Light mouthfeel and body afford easy drinking. Excellent.

Beersiveknown (4200) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 12, 2011
A very light blonde beer here, with crisp, white lager style head. Characteristic English hops aroma in the head with a whiff of sulphur. Bottle conditioned so take care when pouring. Remains lively down the glass and retains its head. Taste is an intial hoppy bitterness moving into a lemony malt sweetness and finishing with a bittersweet shortbread.a grassy aroma also appears as the beer oxidises. Very easy drinking and bitter enough to cut through garlicky flavours. [500ml, bottle conditioned]

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
BC from Duncan Murray Wines, Market Harborough. Pours pale, bright gold with lively carbonation and a tall, soap sud foam going nowhere. Inviting aroma reminiscent of Orval; floral and horsey with juicy gooseberry, lime and a hint of farmyard. Scoring this big- itís crisp, floral, zested with lime and has a bite of yeast and bitterness I wasnít expecting. But best of all (intentionally or not), it tastes like Orval. Lip-smacker.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Ward Arms, Guilsborough. A light golden coloured beer with a white head. The aroma is light lemony hops. The taste has light bitterness from the hops and some signs of crystal malt. Itís decent enough.
