Leighton (12231) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear, yellow-gold with a modest, foam head. Sugary straw on the nose. Quite sweet, biscuity malts, lemon, honey, lightly hoppy. Light bodied with delicate carbonation. Sweet, sun-baked straw and malts on the finish, some mild grass and citrus. Really good stuff.

kwik-lime (1404) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Cask at Lord Moon of The Mall on Whitehall. Generic citrusey blond ale - pleasant floral/grassy/citrus aroma, light hops in the flavour with strong citrus notes and some bitterness in the finish. Decent but unremarkable.

evergreen0199 (2172) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2009
Cask at The Harp, London. Golden ale with a smallish head. Fruity, hoppy and crisp. Quite ordinary really, too many beers similar to this in England currently.

downender (6565) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 25/04/09. Golden in colour with next to no head. Sweetish malt aroma with some hay and grassy hops. Flavour was much the same, leading to a decent bitter finish. A solid effort by Saltaire.
