Cask, Kazimier Garden, Liverpool. Golden looks with a decent white head. Fragrant hop and citrus in all departments and plenty of flavour here for the strength. Dry bitter finish. Very downable and great session fodder.

Cask in the Globe, Guisborough. Golden beer with a white head. A nice & refreshing beer with a good citrus blast on the finish. A decent blond, but still a blond.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
No no no! This doesn’t look good at all! Very pale, watery-looking, slightly hazy yellow body, with a small, short-lived white head. Ok aroma with sweet fruits, lemon, lime and pale malts. Some sweetness in the taste as well, followed by a light to moderate bitter finish. Moderate flavours that are fruity with citric notes, also some butterscotch in the back. Dry texture, light body, moderate carbonation. Plain and boring. No wonder I wasn’t that interested in beer in 1999 and 2001 if this was the best one could get hold of those days.

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Cask at Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Pours pale yellow with thick, creamy white head, good lacing. Nose is light hay, light malt, light lemon. Taste is light bitter. Palate a bit thin, but an enjoyable pint nonetheless.

plaugher (157) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
500ml bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a hazy golden colour with a fluffy, quickly-dissipating white head. Light fruity aroma, with some toffee flavouring and a slight dry hoppiness. A bit sticky on the palate. Light, crisp and refreshing.
