Cask@Marble Arch Inn. 05.Jul.2012 Light straw body, bubbles sticking to the glass, spare creamy head. Smells of mayonnaise, oat, grain and butter. The taste is pleasant, but not so interesting. But, we’re in Manchester and I’ve been drinking a few rather special brews today, so.... We probably should take that into consideration?! Round, smooth and pleasant!

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2012
The head was good, the body blond. It smells fruity, intensive and expectant. The taste is hoppy: citrus, orange, lemon, a bit malty. Very nice! 12/11/12/11/-/11

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 500ml bottle served from the fridge in a chalice. Greeny gold with a delicate white head. Lemony aroma, lemon-lime & pineapple flavour with a dry straw finish. Light carbonation. Very quaffable, ideal for a hot summer day, but could do with a good bit more hop bitterness in the finish to lift it a point or two. 14/07/2012, Another 500ml bottle, fridge cold after a vigorous day of housework in muggy temperatures. I decided I’d been a bit stingy before. Absolutely spot-on in this context, so I’ve lifted it a point or two, and revised my opinion about it needing more bitterness. Lovely, and I’m glad I’ve got another chilling in the fridge.

BeerViking (3477) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Gravity at the 2012 Battersea beer festival. Pale gold with a lasting coarse white head and a floral aroma. Floral and grapefruit hops in the mouth plus underlying bready and sweet malt and a citrus-bitter finish.

Cask at The Saracens Head, Symonds Yat East. Gorgeous pale golden with thin nice foam. Champagne nose, crisp hoppy body, tart round tasty bittering, lemon citrus. Still cask, smooth, northern european hops. Really nice and stood out, not the normal golden ale I often saw.
