hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2011
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma and a hint of something like natural gas. Very sweet, near sugary malt taste with a trace of sweet lemonade flavour. Mid bitter finish. A summer themed beer that worked very well for me.

Cask at The Lamb and Flag, Oxford, 06-09-08 Pours mid golden with just a slight haze. Quite citrusy little tangy. Really quite interesting although if truth be known may well have been just a little past its best.

Not much aroma, hint of banana. Taste similar, more bananaey. Quite sweet. Back of the mouth resiny hops, with a slight nutty edge. Finish is resiny until a rich sweet grain, almost weetabix-like, takes over.
