On cask at the Bull Bracebridge Heath Lincoln. It appeRs to have dropped the IPA in the name. The very mild citrus aroma hints as it’s IPA and hop roots. But this is more bitter than IPA.

gegwilson (952) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Cask in the Galleon Inn, Fowey. Pale amber with an off white head. Some quite nice pineapple notes from the hops over a caramel malt base. Flavours are a bit too subtle, but what there is is decent.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Handpull at The George (Strand). Slightly hazy brassy gold with minimal white head. Mild aroma, floral, bit of pear and grain, no alcohol - tastes the same. Watery, still, a bit sweet with no linger. Light.

JorgeLee (1151) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Cask at the Price Bonaparte, W2. I’ve never been overly impressed by Sharp’s beers, finding the increasingly ubiquitous Doom Bar pretty dull. This was however a bit better, amber in colour, soft malt background and then a reasonable amount of fruity hop character. Finish is a bit brief.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer, good cream coloured head. Smooth palate, a little soft and creamy. Very mild orange - lemon citrus in distinctly honey toned soft malt. Mild minerals. Easy going and pretty drinkable.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2011
Medium creamy offwhite head. Clear yellow body. Floral mango and pineapple aroma with resiny citric notes. Dry-sweet floral minty taste with mango and orange notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish honey and lime aftertaste with spicy notes. Slightly watery. Aftertaste is a bit faint. But a lovely beer otherwise. (0.25l cask, The Feathers, Westminster, London.)
