Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.60/pint. Pours pale amber with a thin, white head. The aroma is malt led and lightly perfumed. Taste opens sweet, with a pleasant candied, floral flavour that stays into a short finish. Low bitterness. I enjoyed it but I only had a half and suspect the sweetness would get a little much after a full pint or more.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Can from the Mill, Cambridge. Mid gold with a fairly large white head and considerable lacing. I usually try not to borrow from the commercial description but lychee and white grape, yeah. A hint of saccharin. Slightly bittersweet taste. Unprepossessing but decent. A very very good beer but by no means a great one.

ianwelby (1114) - SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2015
About as close to a bang-average IPA as you can get. Clear golden, light hop, a twist of fruit. Creamy mouthfeel. Nothing good or bad to really set it apart.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2015
Roosters Yankee original pale ale 4.3% can from Whole Foods London. It pours a light clear gold with a fizzy white head. The aroma is floral & perfumey hops which aren’t my thing but nice enough. Light bodied with a raspy carbonation. The taste stays perfumey and floral with a light malt sweetness to it. Not for me, it is a bit meh.
