madmitch76 (22450) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2009
6th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Well balanced beer but can’t find anything else to say about this bland but inoffensive beer.

fiulijn (19379) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Cask at The Farmer’s Arm Inn, King’s Lynn, July 2012
Light amber color. Mild aroma, with a lemony trace. Light body, simple flavour, with good bitterness and light lemon trace; the final is correctly bitter, maybe too dry. Simple but refreshing enough.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Cask at the Bishop’s Finger - Smithfield, London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a fine, creamy head. Light citrusy hops in the nose, fine biscuity pale malts. Light sweet flavor with mellow orange rind, other pithy citrus, restrained pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fair balance onthe finish, slight leafy bitterness, further dry citrus, touhes of dry, pale malte. Nothing that wrong here, although the character is on the wimpy side.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Re-rate in it’s 3.4% incarnation Cask at GBBF 2009. Gold, thinnish off white head. My god, it has some hop on the aroma, EKG I’m guessing. A bit watery in mouth, but that will be the low ABV, no real condition, some hop, flowery hop on finish 7 3 5 2 10 2.6/5.0

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2008
Cask. Clear dark amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is subtle, hint of spicy hops. A bit of soap, but in all a nice enough flavour.
