Cask. Very slight haze in light pale gold. Thin white, but steady head. Light fruity nose, berries - Strawberry, blackberry. More berry in the mouth, with some added bramble woodiness. Nettles. Grass. Strong bitter lemon finish.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - FEB 25, 2013
There is no doubt about the fact that this is a great session ale. A kind of American style hoppy bitter edge to every mouthful. Clean dry ending. Fruity aftertaste.

Bottle. Light and easy drinking. Subtle flavours - malt and light citrus hoppiness, earthy aftertaste. Better on Cask but still pleasant.

wimpyjoe (3750) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Hopped cloudy golden ale, no head, and bitter hopped in taste. Goes down well.

foxo82 (683) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. A clear, blonde ale, minimal head. Smells sweet and mildly hoppy. Taste is weak and watery but with a pleasant hops kick at the end, some ginger. Drinkable but not memorable.

BlackHaddock (3635) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
3rd August 2012 saw me in ‘The Crown Inn’ Oakengates and having four hand-pulled pints of this fine brew. Almost clear body of light amber/deep gold with a white, lasting head of bubbles. Very floral nose: some malts in the aroma as well, but completely overshadowed by the floral hops. The taste is almost a reverse of the smell: the hops now playing second fiddle to the maltier content and only coming into their own as the mouth dries and a semi-bitterness arrives. Medium bodied; and easy to drink (hence the four pints).

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
4.2% amber colour with a thin head, malty aroma, fruity caramel taste, nice.

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2012
Cask at GBBF’12, London: Clear amber coloured brew with an sweet hoppy taste and sweet firmy finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. An aroma of caramel, grassy hops and yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Brandman (2068) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2011
Golden clear body, white head. Aroma of butter, flowers, fruits, grainy malts. Bitter ok, pines, apples and metal in mouth. Leaves quite dry.
