Cask. A hazy light golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt and flowery hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of flowers and hops. The body is light. Lovely refreshing.

harrisoni (14826) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
Cask handpull at London Drinker BF 08. Pale gold, lasting bubbly white head. For me, it has diacetyl on the aroma. OK, after that. Decent citrusy hoppy golden beer, but the diacetyl spoils it for me.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Cask Conditioned at Merton Beer Festival, Oxon.
Straw coloured beer with fine bubbly head. Just occasionaly you come across a masterpiece by someone who loves their art. This is a classic beer, lovingly created by someone who wants everyone to share th experience. Like a great plae of food or a magnificent painting the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This is a beautiful beer, hoppy, fragrant, dry and bitter, with a lemony flavour that bursts the tastebuds. Long on the finish and sweetly lingering. I am not embarrased to give it one of my highest marks, it was that good and well done to organisers of the Festival to make the final delivery so brilliant. A masterpiece.
