tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) on 7th February 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull opaque gold in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral hop note in the short aromatic aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a fruity zesty base of juicy grapefruit full in the mouth. Dusty hop resins give good length to the bitter aftertaste. Finish is bitter with pleasant floral hop notes and not astringent to the palate. A decent session American Pale Ale.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Cask conditioned handpump Saracens Head Daventry 24/01/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head and lace. Nice fresh citrussy hops in the nose. Hops in the mouth too but there’s a slight hint of fust and yeast. Nice enough beer all told with some good citrus notes. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.4 Score unaltered

Scopey (7445) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Cask at Flying Horse, Gatwick South Terminal. It pours lightly hazy golden amber with a small, fine white head. The nose is brioche, toast, digestive biscuit, pine and citrus peel. The taste is bitter, pine needles, resin, grapefruit, lemon peel and some astringency with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice level of bitterness and rather quaffable. Who would have thought the Wadworth brewkit was up to this???

SarkyNorthener (2391) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Cask@the avion, aldridge. Golden amber with small head and decent lacing. Aroma of lemon, other citrus fruits and pine hops. Taste is hoppy, some grapefruit, lemon, a touch of yeast and pale malts. Nice beer.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Collaboration brew for Wetherspoons pub chain. Hand-pulled pint before my flight from Liverpool John Lennon Airport in The Argosy Bar on 16th Jan 2014. Golden, clear body with a good white head that gave a lot of lacing. Hoppy and bitter with a dry finish, spruce feel to the aroma and taste. Hints of citrus almost ruined it for me, but they were only hints and not full on ’toilet duck’ flavour. Pleasant and easy to drink.

DanielBrown (3925) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Cask at Wetherspoons (under Central Library). Sank several pints of this and enjoyed it. Gobsmacked that Wadworth are involved. Verges towards dry biscuit at various moments, but by and large is a fresh, hoppy session treat.

evergreen0199 (2142) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Cask at Moon and Sixpence, Wetherspoons in Hatch End. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus fruit, slightly bitter, some pine. Refreshing APA.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Cask at Wetherspoons, Stansted. Pours a clear amber gold with a thin but robust white froth. Loads of lacing too, which is nice. Mild citrus aroma with a touch of hay and pine. Quite pleasant and fresh. Taste begins with a light bready sweetness, which is followed by a more present yet subtle citrus bitterness. Vaguely buttery. After the initial taste passes, a distinctly malty sweetness lingers. Smooth and medium body. Quite a tasty number, pleasant drinking waiting for my flight!

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Golden with a fluffy foam. Aromas are citrus rind with resinous lemon and bready yeast. Oranges with subtle grapefruit and green pine needle. Flavours are bittersweet and tart lemon with green apple and slightly funky yeast. Herbal and leafy with bitter grapegeuit and pithy citrus peel. Very addictive.
