Cask @ Magpie. Brentford. Golden rake. Golden ,dub. Floral hop nose. There is some decent hop texture aromatic suggestions of earthy lime grapefruit. pine wood. Dusty. A backbase of sweet malt caramel. This is ok but the style usually bores my ass. Turn the hop volume up!!!

Cask handpull at the ring bar Southwark. Nice clear pale golden coloured pour with a lasting light white head. Aroma us straw wet grass, earthy and yeast esters. Flavour is light base malts with classic English hop, slight grass, chalky water profile and assertive bitterness. Clean ferment. Palate is dry with moderate carbonation and good bright condition. Nice lingering zing of citrus. Tasty drop.

Cask at JDWs at Tower Hill. Straw colour with a nice head that seems to stay through the pint. Refreshing, some citrus and a dry bitter finish. Very drinkable, good example of the style.

Golden with next to no head. It’s got a firm hop to it, especially in its nose with sweeter fruit notes for its flavour.
