Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2012
Cask at The Dean Swift, London. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam. Biscuity bread aroma, light toast. Medium sweet flavor, toasty biscuits, light straw, fine grass and hints of toasted sugar. Medium bodied with fine, soft carbonation. Sweet, faintly sticky finish, lightly toasted bread, some hay. Very easy, decent beer.

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2012
Pint at the Central in Gateshead. Quite pale for a bitter with a thin white head. Lemony tropical fruit aroma, and a bit of biscuit in the flavour. I did find the palate slightly creamy, which contrasted nicely with a bitter finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber gold with a small white head. A little peppery grain and sweet fruit in the aroma. I had some German bread a bit like that once. Sweet malt taste with a little lemon. Slight bitterness. Odd but perfectly acceptable.

sm89walt (1748) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2009
Cask - West Gate Inn, Canterbury. Cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Sweet orangey aromas with some spicy, grassy hop notes on the nose. Sweet fruit and floral flavours with a citrus bite. Crisp mouthfeel and a medium dry finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at The White Horse.
Very slightly hazy gold with a thin white head. Mellow hop aroma with some slight citrus. A little bland but nice enough. Flavour is pretty much as the nose with a little tobacco. What it lacks in flavour it makes up by just being nice. Floral and bitter finish. Very downable, a real quaffing beer.

Tasting notes from 2004 Banbury beer festival. Fairly smooth, decent session beer. Golden-amber, hazy with frothy white head. Citrus, lemon, and grass aroma notes. Citrus, fruit, and fairly tame flavours. Dry, light bitter finish.

Gravity at Rochester Sweeps Festival. Moderate pale ale - copper coloured and with blurry American hops. Not really pulling hard enough.
