Very pale and highly aromatic beer but sadly those are the highlights. Not quite enough malt to give it a decent body, or enough sweetness to counteract the hops, which are actually quite astringent. Could be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2012
Cask at Dog & Gun, Syston. Clear pale amber with a minimal head. Strong, hoppy lemon aroma and taste. Medium bitter finish. A little dry. Enjoyable, though.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pale blond coloured with creamy white head. Aroma is malty, wheat, bit creamy, slight bit of lemon. Taste is pretty nice, creamy with a touch of bitterness but not overwhelmingly so. Bit of biscuit too. Finish is citrussy and then grainy. Bit of sweetness too, and maybe strawberry...?

Cask in The White Horse (Sloaney Pony). Colour is pale yellow/gold. Nose is bready, and touch of roasted grain even though it’s pale. Taste has some citrous, but of tangerine and some grassiness.

GBBF. Cask. Hazy gold beer. Suddy white head. Light dry palate. Over dry! A little citrus hop with a whisper of banana. Mild minerals. Ok but too dry again from Roosters.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Oi! Mark! Where are the hops? Blander than the elderflower, and that was a bit lacking on balls to be honest. Only a touch of bitter hops in the finish, but also watery and chalky. Will some yanks please teach these guys what "aromatic" means.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 stunning. a lovely lightly toasted yellow/bronw colour with an excellent white head. a sniff blasts the nose with cirtus and floral hoppiness with loads of grapefruit. sip it and the grapefruit really comes to the fore, a really nice smooth mouth feel with good carbonation. An excellent dry and bitter finish. cracking beer. I would happily drink it until I fell over! cask. old bell. harrogate
