will1 (140) - Hampshire, - FEB 11, 2012
Pale in colour with a slight haze after pouring. Aromas slightly fruity - pears, yeast and hay along with the usual malt and citrussy hops. In taste this was reasonably bitter but a bit thin on flavour and lacking in body. A nice enough thirst quencher though.

BlackHaddock (3779) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
March 2010: This bottled conditioned 500ml of beer was consummed 3 months before its BBD. Poured into a vase shaped pint glass. A haze took the shine of this pale amber/orange coloured ale, on top sat a pure white head, deep initially, losing depth at a steady rate. Not sure if I poured in any sediment, or the beer is supposed to have a haze? Hops provided the most smell coming from the glass, flowery, grassy and with a hint of citrus fruits. The taste more or less followed the smells, with an extra tangy feel, an almost ginger style hotness too. The alcohol at only 3.8% ABV doesn’t sound interesting to some BA’s, but this is a well produced, balanced British Bitter and well worth trying.

ALLOVATE (2412) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2011
No noise once the cap comes off and it appears still in the glass. A radiant light orange in colour, almost bright and headless bar a ring of white on the meniscus. Nose is predominately lemon peel, bitter orange and white Semillon grapes with just a touch of yeast and pine nuts. In the mouth it is quite weedy, lots of pine, nettles and gritty, dusty grain, straw and toothpick. Very dry. Long, long dry, gritty pine wood and dried bitter herbs swallow. Drew out and absorbed all the saliva in my mouth. Light body, very light, and almost still in feel with just a tease of carbonation up front. Lacks balance and is a bit messy flavour wise. Drinkable but not sessionable as it left me parched! (50cL, BBE 08/12, Greendale Farm Shop, Woodbury Common, Exeter, Devon)

50cl bottle from Moor & More Beer, Plymouth. Slightly hazy amber with a ring of translucent head; citrus and honey aroma; pleasant light citrus taste to strart, then watery; the finish has some grapefruit and gentle bitterness but is very thin.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2010
Cask, gravity at Luton BF ’10. Pale gold with a small white head. Curious burnt match aroma, maybe with a hint of vinegar. Or tomato ketchup. Or popcorn. Taste was rather nasty, suggestive of corn or rice. Or Snickers bar. Slight bitterness. Didn’t work, I regret to say.

Cask @ National Winter Ales Festival 2009. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of butter and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of mlat and straw as well as lighter notes of honey. The body is light.
