Grumbo (1215) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Cask at The Rodboro Buildings, Guildford, Surrey. Pours pale golden with an average size white head. Aroma is distinctly caramel, also fruity and hoppy. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Body is medium, texture has a creamy feel, soft carbonation. Lingering bitterness to finish. Quite decent.

invinoveritas (115) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Pours a light yellow with almost no head - in fact almost no carbonation. Pretty standard watery washing-up liquid hoppy taste, a bit lemony and a smattering of sumac and a bitterness to finish.

ben4321 (5641) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Cask at Ship and Mitre. Clear golden pour with a lot of lacing. Light, clean pale malt and grassy hops. Light sweetness, crisp, clean bitterness. Dry finish. Very drinkable.

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
A hoppy session bitter with a nice dry finish. Nice aroma too, maybe a good shout for a refreshing summer tipple.

Vladivostok (432) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Golden ale with a reasonable hop presence, tending towards citrus. Palate is broader than some in its category and finish quite restrained. Nice relaxing beer.
