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 (4964) - 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

JorgeLee (1458) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Cask in the Elephant and Castle W8. Pale yellow colour. A dry, bitter golden ale. Hoppy, mostly bitterness, some grapefruit. Served cooler than their other casks for some reason. I enjoyed this, it was moreish and quaffable, and I would have had more if they hadn’t had Inferno on tap too!
