ladnewton (1803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford on 31st January 2015. Slightly hazy amber with shallow off-white foam and partial lacing. Hoppy, yeasty aromas. Rich biscuit malts and mildly citric hops in-mouth. Finish is a continuation of maltiness, but with a bitter note developing in rear of mouth, whilst fruitiness resounds elsewhere. Light-bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Fruity, grapey kind of aroma. Slightly cloudy. Really vinegary tasting. Not a fan at all. Won't be ordering this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2014
Half pint in fine condition at The Gunmakers. Patchy white head to a pale golden body, slightly hazy. Spotty lacing. Moderate aromas of grassy hops. Refreshing flavour profile of bitter hops offset by mild malty sweetness. Drying hops on the swallow. Fine drinkability matching the pub food (London 23.09.2014).

leaparsons (9835) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Keg, The King’s Head, Leicester. Golden with a thin head. Aromas are biscuit with lemon and light grapefruit. Hints of pineapple with melon and cardboard. Flavours are grain with lemon. Some hints of cheese with a bit of a dead character and too much fizz. Enough to put you off keg. £2.20 for a half of this limp effort. Pah!
