Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 03/06/ A blonde beer with a whitish head and lace. A tasty citrussy beer. Good limey fruits. A bit of biscuity malts. A bit of gingerbread note. A complex tasty beer which drinks its 5%. Grapefruit in nose is good too. Good.

/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Cereal aroma. Flavours of marmalade, blue fruits, and farmyard. Light bodied, slightly creamy texture. Gentle carbonation, moderately bitter finish. A bit of complexity raises this above more run of the mill blond ales.

jmgreenuk (4606) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a very slightly hazy light straw colour with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is weak hoppy with a bit of barnyard in there too. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with some nice grassy nettle hoppiness and some barnyard malt. Served on the cool side this is a super refreshing summer ale. The cask had only just been put on so I drank it nice and fresh which makes a difference. This beer deserves a better rating.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Not quite clear rich yellow, persistent spongy head. Dry hoppy aroma, touch of ginger. Light carbonation, and a lovely tingle on the tongue from both carbonation and gingery hoppiness. Very full taste - fruity, spicy, bags of grains. Finish has all of the taste, plus just a little mushroom. All-round classic bitter - good show!

(Cask at Kitty’s, Helsinki, on 2009-05-02) Golden and almost clear. Medium sized, white and long lasting head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Medium bodied and bit dry palate with little carbonation. Malts, sweetness, toffee, grass, fruitiness and bitterness, Malty and lightly bitter aftertaste. Not a dull tasting beer at all.
