(Cask, GBBF 2013): Clear golden colour with a small white head. Citrus, grass, hops and a touch of elderflower in the aroma. Taste was similar with some fruity berry notes. Nice, light ale.

minutemat (4421) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Pint at The Eagles Inn, Llanuwchllyn, Wales. Great golden colour, floral English hops with fruity notes. Has a good rounded bitterness. Very refreshing. I look forward to many more pints of this on my future trips to Wales.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2013
(bottle - 500 ml) Hazy amber pour with a thin white head. Odd aroma of semi-sweet malts and some grassy hops. Flavor is a bit odd as well. Overly bitter and slightly reminiscent of boiled vegetables. Not a fan.

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
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.

porkpie (7) - - FEB 9, 2013 does not count
Bottle. Light and easy drinking. Subtle flavours - malt and light citrus hoppiness, earthy aftertaste. Better on Cask but still pleasant.

ManVsBeer (8765) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Hopped cloudy golden ale, no head, and bitter hopped in taste. Goes down well.

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, 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 (6375) - 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).
