imdownthepub (10985) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Gold with white head. Boiled caramel flavours from the off, toffee, then a sicky, fruity flavour. Not for me this one.

jjsint (1134) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Cask at Rushden Historical Transport Society Club. Hazy gold with a bit of white head. Considerable lacing. Aroma of lemon sherbet, a bit of fresh citrus and strawberry. Bittersweet taste with a hint of peppery hop. Passable beer but in all honesty Iíd like more considering the ABV.

Theydon_Bois (11126) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask at the Merchants Inn, Rugby, 12/03/14. Very lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white head that retains well. Nose is straw, lemon rind, musty tones. Taste comprises orchard fruit, bready, musty fruit pangs. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close. Very so so affair veering towards twiggy nonesense.

SaintMatty (5710) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2014
Cask (Isis, Sunderland) - Golden in colour. Earthy hops, biscuity malt and a hint of citrus in the aroma. Moderately hoppy and slightly sweet taste with notes of lemon, earthy hops and tea.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Wrekin, a local íreal aleí pub on 28th Feb 2014. Golden brew with a good white head. Decent enough blend: but a little too citrusy for my taste buds. Iím fed up with light coloured beers that smell and taste like toilet cleaner fluid. OK more than interesting or different. Body fine and itís not a bad beer, just not for me on a cold winters night.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London - shared with Jack. Pours clear amber with a fine, white cream head. Light bready malt nose. Sugary malt flavor, some bread. Lightly syrupy, but not to great detriment. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with further bready malts, mellow bitterness. Simple, fine.

jackl (5342) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Cask @ The Pembury Tavern. The pourís deep chestnut color with a small off-white head. The aromaís rich malts. Some wood, cherry jam, caramel, light spruce and general spices. The taste is more rich berries. Caramel-dipped wood. Spiced chocolate. Smooth body. Overall, not bad! My rating doesnít seem to reflect the general description of the beer. Maybe the Pembury mislabeled this...flagged for rerate.

ReV2 (159) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
A reasonable summer ale, low carbonation for a bottle conditioned beer, mild hoppy flavour drinking below its 5.5% ABV.

thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Strong golden ale with little to no hoppiness. Thin to mid body and more of a caramel gold. Ok.
