chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Cask (handpump) at the Kings Arms, Norwich on 1 December 2011. Limited notes as I was convinced I had reviewed this before. Very pale in colour – more straw than gold. Follows the usual Phoenix blueprint of zingy citric hops on the nose and palate. Clean and refreshing if rather light in the mouthfeel department and a but short of depth in the flavour. Decent quaffer but not that much to it.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2011
Cask@The Kings Arms, Norwich. Yellow colour, not much head. Aroma is fruits, bread, some herbs and mild doughy notes. Flavour is sweet malts, some fruity and floral notes as well. Quite standard golden ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. A blonde ale with a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, yeast, alcohol and barley. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and the mouth-feel is a little oily. Not bad.

Cunningham (4015) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 On handpull in Liverpool. Golden colour with a white head. Fruity and some citrus in the aroma. Lightly malty flavour with notes of citrus. An ok mild english blond, easy drinkable with low co2.
