TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2011
Pint on hand pump at the Prince of Wales (Putney). A pretty stock standard golden ale, but there is nothing wrong with that. A little tart fruit and a crispness in the finish.

erickok (4005) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 17, 2011
Nice cloudy golden looks that was poured without head but actually has a very nice one. Citrus, grass and peach. Balanced aftertaste and dry in the very end. For the ABV it sure had a lot of flavour. Very enjoyable. (On tap & 50cl bottle)

Leighton (12985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Cask at the White Horse, Exchange Square. Rich gold pour with a foamy, voluminous white head. Pleasant hop nose, bits of pine and grapefruit. Nice flavor, lots of sticky, resinous bitterness, sweetness of honey and sugar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sticky hop finish, great balance, light bread. A really solid beer.

mcberko (8010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
On tap, pours clear copper. Aroma and flavour of bitter citrus hops and English malts - not much character. Decent.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2010
Strong hop aroma with grassy notes. Moderate malty aroma. Citrus (grapefruit) & pine aroma. Honey notes. Hoppy bitter dry finish. Soft carbonation. Bit watery (but in good sense) and oily texture. Golden colour.

Sept, 2010 Cask, Salisbury, Covent Garden on the Welcome Pub Crawl. Hoppy and fresh and tasty. Nice beer served in good condition. [3.3]
April, 2014 Turf Tavern, Oxford. Standard best bitter. Soft amber caramel - few hops. Drinkable. Unremarkable. [2.7]

sm89walt (1783) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2010
Cask - The Rumsey Wells, Norwich. Pours dark golden, has a clearing haze and a bubbly off-white head with moderate length Bittersweet grapefruit and orange aromas. Tangerine, peach and more of that lovely grapefruit bittersweetness in the finish. Length of the finish is just about right, soft with some bite and dryness on a light to medium body. Pretty bloody good in all.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Cask- Amber with an off white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, mild caramel maltiness. Taste is a nice hoppiness, with a background sweetness coming through. Thought this was quite good.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask. Aroma is quite hoppy, (citrus) some notable malt as well, orange, slim custard head. Flavour is orange, with a decent malt accompanying. Light bodied, very well balanced, bitter west coast as can be for a UK offering. Seems to be a really fine rendition of an American IPA. Terrific!
