Cask @ Odiham & Greywell Cricket Club. Pale golden in appearance, quite hoppy and dry but very well balanced. Has a somewhat grassy and fruity aroma but there is plenty going on with this brew. Distinct citrus overtones that make it very crisp and drinkable.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Cask at the Red Lion, Isleworth, Bank Holiday Festival, 27th August 2010. Golden colour. Defective floral nose. Strangely fruity, somehow off taste. Soapy finish. No thanks.

esox (1213) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2010
Pale amber colour, slightly hazy. Sweet and fruity aroma with herbal hops, some perry. Fresh yeasty esters. A bith rough, maybe a bit young. Smooth maltiness, light caramel, light nuttiness in the finish.

tdtm82 (1389) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2010
Cask, The Queen’s Head, Chelmsford. Average pale ale appearance with off-white head, good lacing, good perfume nose, also quite floral, grassy, zingy, fruity hops, good bitterness, ridiculously easy to drink. Note to brewery. Would make an exceptional spring ale guest.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2010
Hazy straw. The aroma is a bit buttery and a bit floral. Tastes of butter, maybe some caramel. Second attempt at this one, and it’s equally dreary as the first time around.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Funny how you think you have rated a beer because you had it before joining Ratebeer. Some white stone fruit with some biscuit. Not huge hop but some bitterness on end, some sweetness form the strength. OK. Some fruit salad.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
@ The Bell, Bath. It was dark inside but I am pretty sure the beer is bright gold. Sudsy cask head no sparkler, yeah! At first the aromas and the flavors are bland and even have some flaws touch bubblegum and diacetyl, but those burn off revealing an underdeveloped but very good flavor profile.
