Yeah itís okay....iíve just had brewers gold so everything is a bit of a downer now....cascade hops apparently but iím not sure if theyíre used in the right way, not much aroma and not much flavour really, good malt background but really misses the flavour of a really good hop!

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2009 2009-06-16, Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 6-3-4-2-9=24
Amber color, still. Initially the aroma shows some good hop, but it quickly disappears. Very light caramel flavor, soft mouthfeel also because of the missing carbonation, correct bitterness. Absolutely anonymous.

2008-11-05, Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - The Pommelers Rest, London, 5-4-6-3-10=28
Nice amber color. Simple Bitter, reasonable caramel flavor and bitterness, too light aroma (maybe a bit floreal), but also a light metallic touch. Too easy.

Cask at the Three Mariners, Hythe, Kent. Hazy gold with a ring of white head; malty aroma; thin and watery with some malt, suagar and hops. Rather plain and boring.
