KyotoLefty (9403) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Cask at the Bear and Billet, Chester. Very fruity and mellow. Seems like there is more than 50% barley malt in here, as there is a good barley taste. Great wheat flavor, though, too. Very strong hops. It is rich and fruity, with a fruit and hop finish. Very nice.

Leighton (18710) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2011 Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours clear yellow with a bubbly, white head. Sugary, crispy malt nose, hay and straw. Fairly sweet flavor, biscuits, wet hay, baked corn, some dry grass and straw. Light in body with fine carbonation. Finish has some white sugar, burnt hay, faint lemon rind. Not bad, pretty drinkable.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Golden Lion, York. Served at correct temperature. Golden colour. Creamy head, nice lacing. Moderate wheaty and citrussy aroma. Pleasant wheaty and lemony / grapefruity flavour, soft mouthfeel, refreshing.

Cask at GBBF 2008. Nice golden colour beer with a medium white head. The aroma is all fruit and hops. The taste is all citrus with grapefruit most noticeable, with a bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
Hinckley, second sampling....still that buttery aroma, but with soft wine gummy hop tang leaking out. Clearly fresh cask. Nitro lacy, orange amber, fine milky condition. Very soft and low carb but it suits. Slippery and fine. Gentle lemon and lime gelatinous penny chew hop softness closing with creamy wheaty biscuit and vanilla afters. Sweet but good.

tombyars (1595) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Superb aroma of toffee and ripe mango fruit, long in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a medlay of fruit flavours with lychees, peaches, and honeydew melon present. Plenty of aromatic hops abound in the long aftertaste with tart citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon and goosberry. Tart bitter finish with dry grapefruit pith but not too cloying. A decent session Golden Ale with a complex range of fruit flavours. Well recommended.

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
[Cask at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear golden. Concentrated hay aroma. Soft and medium bodied. Malt is there to support and lay a soft foundation, but hops make up most of the flavour - hay is dominant. Medium bitterness.
