harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. I’m going to persist with Picitsh until I like them. Pale gold beer. Lasting cream head. Some yeast on aroma. Some odd hop on this, herby and slightly sweet. Well made, but just a touch sweet maybe.

imdownthepub (10497) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 06. Golden beer with volcanic white head. This was a fresh one, the beer exploded from the cask as if it was in a hurry to show you what it was made of. It certainly is a particularly accomplished Golden Ale, light fruity with a chewey late bitterness. Citrusy with a little hop oiliness, very good.

FatPhil (9423) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2008
Cask (Kingston Arms, Cambridge)
Fairly middle-of-the-road blond ale. Crisp zesty aroma. Rather thin in the body, and decent hops aren’t enough to make it stand out from the crowd.

Cask Stillage at the Town Hall, Stockport 01/06/2001 Light on the palate and very hoppy. Bitterness in the finish.

Fin (7556) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Cask at Merton Beer Festival July 7th, 8th 2006. Poured golden and like Glenn say’s it was very lively with a large white frothy head. Nice aroma of hops led to a wonderfully citrusy refreshing slightly dry beer. This is another brewery who seem to make some super beers and whilst I prefer their Alchemist this was certainly another super beer.
