bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
Cask at The Punch Bowl in York. Pours light translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is too faint for me. Med body. Flavor is a little like cooked barley with some spicy hop. Very different in a noticeable way. Good session ale. I’m starting to really like it.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 18/04/13. A blonde beer with a white head. Nice citrussy hops with some dry biscuity notes. New Zealand hops seem to shine. Fresh and nicely hoppy. It’s quite good.

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask, William Rufus Carlisle. Not quite the ’stunning fruit aromas & flavours’ that are described, but a pleasant enough lemon & biscuit aroma & flavour with also a whiff of Burton sulphur. Soft, clean palate with a short & slightly thin finish. More biscuity malt in the aftertaste but not memorable.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2013
Cask at the William Webb Ellis, Twickenham, 07/04/13. Clear pale golden with a decent white cap. Good lacing ensues. Nose carries pale malts, grass, citrus, light floral hop notes. Taste comprises pale malt, cereal, touch of orange, light hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth and crisp in the finish. Ok stuff, the blandometer is edgeing towards amber but it was in good form and eminently quaffable!

wheresthepath (1521) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Gold with a thick white head and a moderate fizz. Flavour of lemon and grass with a little honey. It may be a little watery, but a pleasing light bitterness to finish makes this a good refreshing summer session beer.

The Playhouse Spoons, Colchester. Almost clear gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and dry and slightly airy. Bitterish grapefruit and orange citrus. Mild minerals. Some sweeter orange before the dry finish. Medium bitter linger. Not bad but skewed by a slight sulphur note.
