Cask@blackdoor. Yellow, pale. Pale malty, light honey, just a hint of herby hops. Nice soft mouthfeel, just a bit of a mouthdry finish, some meadowy flavours. Easily consumed drink. Nothing that special, but doesn’t get boring either.

Cask at the Stromness Hotel. Pours hazy pale gold, thick foamy head. Light lemon and malt aromas. Taste is more of the same. Not exciting, but not bad.

Scopey (6159) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Cask at the Grill. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is doughy, straw, sweet orange, sherbet and muffin. The taste is crisp, floral, light dough, orange, tangerine, lemon, sherbet and straw with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A clean, easy-going golden. Decent.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel Northampton 27/04/12. A pale golden beer with a white head and lacing. A bit of sweet toffee in the aroma. Oaty sweetness in the mouth giving way to citrus bitterness. The texture is creamy. Late fruits are ok. It’s reasonable enough.
