The aroma and the taste is rather thin with notes of caramel malt, fruit and hops. Easy to drink with a pleasant dry hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Light golden ale with a thin white head. Yeasty, caramel nose and flavours with a funky apple cider flavour that lingers. Very dry which I like.

davet100 (16) - Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On cask @ Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club, Hampshire. Delightful beer, very pale golden appearance with pleasant citrus overtones and a flavour characterised by a hint of dry hopping in the brew. Definite refreshing qualities and despite being quite light, it is is deceivingly flavourful and full bodied. Very drinkable.

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2010
Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Dark yellow with a bubbly off-white head & some lacing. Light, toasty, caramel malts & lemony, grassy hop aromas. A drop of strawberry comes through towards the end. Very mild initial toffee flavours up front giving way to earthy malts & leafy, grassy, pithy hops with a mild tang. Some carbonation, mostly soft on a light-medium body with a lingering finish.

Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, with caramel and green apples. Dry fruity and malty flavour with a bitter finish

Another beer I was lucky enough to have on tap at The Waters Green Tavern in Macclesfield on my stag do. Golden with thin to med white head. Vanilla, obvious hops with a dry bitter finish. I really enjoyed this.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2009
Half, hand pulled from cask at The Castle, Holborn. Shiny, naked surface. Straw-golden coloured body. Discreet floral aroma. Dry hopped fruits in flavour. Smooth bitterness to the ending. Refreshing (London, 03.08.2009).

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2009
Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Stunning pale ale. Not as dry as the pumpclip would suggest though. Lovely soft, yeasty, doughy smell permeates throughout. Fruity, hoppy, malty, superb.

Fin (9358) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2008
Cask handpump at The Pilgrim, Liverpool, 29-11-08. Pours pale golden in colour with a white foamy head, appearance is crystal clear in fact. Some shallow but soft vanilla comes to the fore along with a creamy but dryness on the palate. A quite tasty beer that finishes with a dry and bitter swipe. A6 A5 F7 P4 OV14
