Cask a Willow Walk 'spoons, Victoria. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma has a hint of orange and caramel. Medium body, mild carbonation. There's lemon and a hint of marmalade alongside a solid maltiness. Tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Watford jdw. Pale golden coloured pour with a lasting white head and decent lace. Aroma is iron, wet grassy hop and some caramel. Flavour is pale English malt with some caramel. Fruity yeast esters with hints of belgian blonde. Finish is sweet sweet honey and mineral. Medium light palate and average carbonation light slick. Not sure I should have had a pint of this.

Hand-pulled half-pint in my local Wetherspoons on 13th Jan 2014. As the name suggests, this is a blonde coloured beer: the head being white, full and staying. Slight citrus aroma, very little malt in the nose, all hop. The taste was also hop leading with the malts well below the surface: the beer was refreshing, crisp and very easy to drink. One of the better citrus flavoured light beers currently about in the UK.

Nice would definitely drink again. Good strength it seems as well. One of the best on my list so far.

Bottle at home. Light lager-like appearance and taste. But a good lager taste, light and crisp, although fairly insubstantial (probably means less sugar compared to standard lagers) Gives way to a lovely subtle hoppy finish that endures. You'll feel like you want to glug it, but it's better not to.

Very lager, but not lager, nice bitter aftertaste, that stays in mouth for a while. Well balanced. Color pale gold with fast disappearing head. Would be nice after sauna.

RichTheVillan (6508) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; light amber pour with big white velvety head, aroma is biscuity with some grass, malt forward taste some spice and citrus tastes like a quality pale lager than a golden, taste should be crisper.
