chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask (gravity dispense) at Nottingham Beer festival, Day 2 on 9 October 2014. Listed in the festival programme just as Raw Blonde but I guess itís the same beer. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Clean and fresh on the palate. Some zesty citrus. Nicely done easy drinker with a decent bite.

Cask by hand-pump at Cloisters, Edinburgh - clear deep golden, thin white head, very weak grain aroma, sporadic lacing, grainy malty flavour, good carbonation, lacking depth of flavour

wimpyjoe (5111) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. A mid to deeper yellow with a small head. Has a hop-malt aroma and taste, but more of the former than latter.

RichardGretton (4366) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is bitter and roasted with plenty of hops. Overall a nice very bitter English pale ale type beer.

downender (6646) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 29/02/2012. Golden coloured with a slight white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, peaches and pine. Flavour was also sweet, with a buttery edge, some orange fruit and a lengthy bitter finish. Didnít work for me.

imdownthepub (10989) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Sharp, light beer with an acidic, spruce like flavour, quite perfumed and a little odd. The astringency from the hop tends to dominate.

dynamiteninja (1643) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2011

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Cask, gravity, at St Neots Beer Festival í11. Gold with a small white head. Faint sweet malt aroma with some overlying sulphur. Rather a rough brown papery taste and a sharp bitter finish. Not much subtlety here, and not the best to be honest

harrisoni (14509) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2011
Cask handpull at The Flower Pot, Maidstone. Clear very pale gold, very thin white head. Ascetic hop aroma with a bit of farty yeast and bit of minerality. Decent condition in mouth, but that sulphur fart bad egg thing does run through it. Some decent citrus biting hop bitterness on finish. Yes, the sulphur is a bit distracting. But the finish is really lasting and biting and very good.
