bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Wonderful fruity, floral hop aromas. Amber gold color with white head. Great floral hop bitter over wheatiness. Finishes nicely bitter. Extremely refreshing.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2009
Cask at the cove, covent garden. Alround rating: Pale sweeter honey malt, wheat is fairly subtle(im guessing around or under the 40% mark, lemon comes through, its fairly clean and easy drinking.

fiulijn (15357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Cask conditioned at The Cove, London</i>
Pale blond color. The aroma is quite citrusy. It has a clean but crispy malt flavor, with good citrusy hops and good bitterness. Pleasant. Underestimated.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2007
Cask@TheCove. No aroma at all. Hazy, yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Neutral start, but soon sweet, banana, softly hopped and some kind of spice, soft mouthfeel. Refreshing but overall uninteresting.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2007
Cask@The Cove. Pale orangeish golden colour with mediumsized white head. Lacing. Aroma is wheat and some spicyness along with bananas. Flavour is wheat, some spices, slight bananas and other fruits. Experimental, but not too good. Like a blond ale meeting a wheat beer.

renffisch (843) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
cask pint at the cove in covent garden. Nose of vanilla, malt and lemon. golden hazy in colour. Quite salty in taste, dry and honeyish. Not too bad but i might have been positively influenced by the gorgeous mead drinking lady i was with this evening...

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
Cask, handpump, at Peterborough BF ’08. Gold with a white head. Hop aroma with a little strawiness in the taste. Some bitterness. Probably tasted this too late in the day.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Cove, Covent Garden, London. Hazed gold with white head. A bit of nothing really, lightly malted with little character, a vanilla smooth finish, disappointing.
