On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and orange. Light malt. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - was expecting a Bitter. This is more in the golden ale or session ipa styles and nothing wrong with that.

JorgeLee (1400) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at the Windsor Castle W8 with Stuart. Amber golden colour, white foam. Very good malt flavours here, toffee. Doesn’t seem as hoppy as landlord, bitter enough but more malt-accented. Immensely drinkable, you probably shouldn’t be allowed to rate this unless you’ve had at least five in a row.

Cask at Market Tavern, Durham, £3.72/pint Pours golden amber with creamy off-white head. Smooth drinking with caramel malts offsetting pleasant bitterness. A good pint from a good brewery.

This is more a session ale than a special. Its charm is more evident on the second round than on the first. It will appeal to those who like their malt caramel notes unobtrusive. It may disappoint those who expect a hippy punch due to its golden colour. My only lament was the price.
