"A real ale with a hint of continental looks, taste and aroma. We’ve called it Quartz Extra Blonde because of its light colour and finish."

Cask Conditioned Handpump Old Contemptibles Birmingham. A yellow gold coloured beer with a big white sparkledand agitated head and lacing. An interesting beer. Sweet with bready malts and husky oats throughout. A bit of late orange and then some definite granulated sugar. Characterful and actually quite cool.

Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Deep gold with a slight, off-white head. Sweet caramel sand orange aroma with a touch of floral hop. Flavour had more sweetness and fruit with a short, bitter finish. Ok.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 OK, had to have this one so I could get the letter Q onto my beer list, and this one was more a labour of love than the rest during the session. Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham, on 28th December 2009. Crystal clear gold, slightly flat, with very little head. Some ginger spice notes present and a slightly heavy sugary sweetness; rounded finish with maltiness (caramel) and a smooth mouthfeel, a little on the flat side. RE-RATING: Bottle at home on 29th January 2013. What a difference! Pours amber with thin film of foam. Clean grassy aroma, tangy hoppiness in-mouth with grass and savoury touches, balanced by solid malt. Tangy finish on zingy mouthfeel with easy drinking lightish body. Fantastic bottle and so much nicer than what must have been a rogue poor pint in a good pub three years ago.

Cask, 2nd Hinckley Beer Festival. Headless gold. High alcohol, dog and wholemeal aroma. Unappetising wholemeal and orange fusion. Worst Beer of The festival So Far...

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in the Welly Winter Festival of Ale. Amber. Delightful sweet apple and treacle aroma. Sweet honeyed taste, reminiscent of baked apple and golden syrup with some fresh apple developing. A little bitterness. Very nice.

(Cask at Market Porter, Borough, London, 28 Nov 2007) Pale amber colour with brief head. Fruity nose with notes of pears and green apples. Fruity taste with apricots and sweetish hints of wheat. On the bland side.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Cask (Peterborough BF 2007) Pleasant light ale. Full of lightly-roasted malt taste, maybe a kind of breadiness, but lacks guts.
