Fairly simple bitter aroma. Smooth palate. May be simple, but is fresh and nice enough. Full, slightly sweet barley taste.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2011
Cask - The Harp, Covent Garden, London. A copper coloured beer with a fine, bubbly beige head. Caramel malt sweetness, gently toasty with some mid fruits on the nose. Mid fruits again on the palate with a delicate bitterness. Much of muchness really. Never really left the starting blocks. Subtle hop note in the finish. Light to medium body, fair, crisp palate texture with a lightly tangy aftertaste.

Hoppy blond ale, slightly fruity in the finish. Nothing complex here but a very solid session ale - enjoyable.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 20th September 2010. Orangey-amber - almost Lucozade colour - and a thin white, partial lacing foam head. Yeasty aroma, touch of cheesiness and a few light hops in the main kick. Then citric and rather fruity. Citric theme maintained in a medium-length finish on a zingy mouthfeel.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2010
(Cask at Old Fountain, Old Street, London, 3 aug 2010) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and grassy hops. Fruity, slightly malty nose with apricots, citrus, grainy malt and generous doses of grassy hops in the finish. Rather thin body, with some sweetness. A bit thin in the malt department, but nice and tasty hop character.

madmitch76 (22368) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer. No head, no carbonation. Semi dry palate. Reasonably well balanced. Bitterish orange with a trace of apple. Finishes very dry. Nice enough flavour but too dry and too flat.
