Leighton (11631) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Cask at CPK, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white head. Light buttery dough aroma, bread, certainly a does of diacetyl here. Medium sweet flavor with some lightly toasted dough. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Sweet on the finish with some light earth and grain, light pine. Nice enough, though the condition doesn’t seem optimal.

rlgk (11343) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2012
Draught at Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Hazy orange/copper beer with a decent offwhite head. Fruity perfume aroma, grapefruit, citrus, floral, yeast notes, apples, pine, hay and herbal notes. Really bitter hop flavor, pine, perfume, floral and a bit metallic, hay, grapefruit, apples notes. On the verge of being onedimensional, but the bitterness is still pleasant. Grassy perfume finish with grapefruit and caramel notes.

imdownthepub (10574) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Hazy gold with white head. Big hop flavours going on with this, grapefruit bitterness with lemon pith and sharp gooseberry, full on the palate and very tasty. Lots of carry through, drying. Very good.

Tap at The Euston Tap - 28/08/12. Clear golden amber with a thinnish white head. Nose of bitter grapefruit and hops. Tastes of bitter grapefruit, orange peel and fresh hops. Medium body and carbonation level with a sharp bitter finish. A well made beer.

FatPhil (9492) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 19, 2012
Cask (Bishops Arms Bellmansgaten, Stockholm)
Crisp fresh refreshing hoppy aroma. Similar palate - crisp. Similar taste too, uplifting fresh hops. Fruity and crisp hops, but great balance, has a lovely bready body backing it up. Great hoppy bitter.

Sammy (8845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
A nice pale ale, on cask at Cask Days 2013. Very balanced, a tad of barnyard that seemed an off-note to me, otherwise most drinkable. Orange bodied, with some hop aroma.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Cask conditioned air pressure Euston Tap London 12/03/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. A pleasant but sharp hoppy nose. Bitter hops in the mouth but an uncomfortable biscuity edge which doesn’t work. The aftertaste is wrong.
