wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Cask, Dispensary, Liverpool. Clear golden colour with a thin lingering white head and decent lacing. Citrus hops the main theme here. Bit soapy, and started to tire of this as the glass went down wishing I hadn’t ordered a pint. Just not very interesting

berkshirejohn (4396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2008
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale straw with a thin white head; citrus aroma; simple citrus flavour with an underlying bready dough body; puch bitter finish, and an aftertaste of powdered ginger. Strange.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2008
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Clear straw appearance, with a short head and some suspended particles just below the head. Fruity, grapefruit scent. Watery, bitter and very dry. Lots of lemon, and floral in the mouth, with a hint of a sweeter peach on the end. Nice but the bitterness was maybe too overpowering.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 1)The Buck and Bell, Long Itchington ’08. Anaemic yellow, slightly misty, nitro-creamy. Shandyish flat lemonade aroma. Hay, watery citrus, pleasantly mealy cornflake afters. 40% lager hops. No off-notes or anything, but Heineken’s got more hop character than this dribble of tedium. What’s the point? 535211. 2) The Mill Hotel, Chester. Straw with a dense white collar. Soapiness, wafers, impression of corn, lingering bitterness and peanut husk, cream custard crumbs. Faint tropical hop aroma. Lime coming through; good leafy hop and lime on nose as collar subsides. Just needs the hops turning up. Solid. 373613.
