330ml Can from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.20):
Not a bad beer at all and one that started to grow on me a little as I worked my way down the can. As expected it was quite bitter and hoppy without really matching the heights of some of the more recent pale ales and IPA’s but it’s certainly not bad for a beer that was first brewed over twenty years ago. It packs in a lot of flavour to its 4.3% as well but still proved quite an easy beer to drink without being one that you’d be likely to go out of your way to pick up again.

MrBlueSky93 (254) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Ilkley. Cloudy Yellow with White, single finger head. On the nose, citrus... On the tongue, initial orange, then developing to lemon, to grapefruit, a lot coming from the cascade there. You also really do get a waxy texture forming on your tongue, I presume from the soft water?

BlackHaddock (4367) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Wetherspoons Flying Horse at Gatwick South on 10th Dec 2014. My flight is at 08.10 and it is only 06.50, what am I to do? Treat myself to a cask pint? OK, I did. Poured a pale golden colour with with a decent white head. The nose was bready malts with a mild citrus twang coming through. The taste a pleasant blend of those malts and citrus/lemon type flavours joined together in a refreshing and tidy manner. Most enjoyable
