Handpull at Lamb & Flag. Clear pale amber with a small frothy off-white head. Perfume/grass aroma and flavour, grainy and not sweet - no alcohol. Light body, hint of astringency, mild carbonation and a longer grassy finish than I expected - fairly decent.

johndoughty (3856) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2011
Cask. My first beer on a Sunday night at the Rendevous in Douglas. The beer was like the pub, friendly but not very inspiring.Golden and clear with a slight trace of sulphur. Some bitterness and reasonably refreshing. A seesion beer that fails

Warning! Early amateur rating! Unusual nutty, wheaty and slightly herby beer. Different and drinkable.

Vladivostok (227) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
I always reckoned this was the dead spit of the old Wethered’s Bitter from Marlow. Good level of bitterness although not big in aroma. Very refreshing and drinkable with a long bitter finish.
