Leighton (9830) - 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.

imdownthepub (9622) - 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.

Lubiere (9423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
A hazed orange amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light caramel malt with grassy floral hops, kiwi and citrus. In mouth, a smooth biscuit biscuit malt with nice grassy and citrusy hops, honey, overall, quite nice. Cask Days 2013.

rlgk (9365) - Göteborg/Jönköping, 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.

FatPhil (8548) - 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.

maeib (8391) - 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.

Sammy (8092) - 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.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Recommended by the barmaid at Euston Tap. Half-pint poured from keg. Cloudy apricot coloured body. Creamy white head. Restrained fresh citrus fruits to the nose. Fresh apricot and grapefruit in flavour. Good fruit bitter support to the ending. Well bodied. Nice even though it was served too cold at the pub (London, 27.11.2012).

jercraigs (7324) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
2013-10-19. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a small frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is moderately citrusy, notes of muddled citrus peel and pale malt. Flavour is similar, sweetish orange citrus and citrus peel over mild pale malt base. Smooth average plus bodied palate, low carbonation. Enjoyable, sessionable but on the mild side. Session 2, Cask Days 2013, Toronto
