Towey1989 (1899) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, slight biscuity malts and grassy hops. Taste of lemon, slight bready, biscuity malts and some grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A really simple, easy drinking golden ale. An inoffensive, hoppy beer.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Cask by gravity at The Station House, Durham, £3.30/pint. Very flat golden beer with almost no head. The aroma is semi-dry, promising a biter taste with grassy hop and some damp leafy tones. The taste is bone dry, with crisp refreshing hop leaving the mouth craving more, backed up by some solid, biscuity malts. Enjoyable.
