Peterborough cask ale festival. A lager style beer. Clean, crisp, refreshing. A summer thirst quencher. There’s stuff here.

Pint from cask at kings arms near waterloo. Clear hazy gold pour once it’s settled with a thin white head aroma is grass and wet paper. Slightly cloying mouth feel. Smooth but lacking in much taste. Just a little green hops and grass.

Vladivostok (374) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Pale golden in colour with a biscuit malt aroma. Hopping is very restrained with no citrus flavours that I could discern. In short, a typical English blonde with all that entails.

FatPhil (12185) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2015
Cask (Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge) (6:3:6+:3+:13+=3.1+++)
Pale hay colour, brief head. Sweet light grains, plenty of lemony hops. Taste packed full of resiny citrussy hop - lemon and grapefruit. Soft light grains do back it up though. Finish resiny, and crisp. Refreshing and sessionable. Very nice golden, not as feeble as I feared - a good ale. Has the UK fixed its incipid golden problem? (2 out of 2 good so far.)

mothmun (10) - Knutsford, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Cask at the Lord Eldon Knutsford. Clear light yellow body with creamy white head. Hops on the nose and nice hoppy bitterness on taste. Good session beer but not much to shout about.

Cask at Champion of the Thames, Cambridge. Light to mid-gold, clear. Light pineapple juice, cherries and grass smell. Refreshingly sweet, fruity taste. Very moreish with a solid lip smacking finish. An above-average golden.
