10th November 2008. Clear gold beer. ’Burning’ as in a little smoky right? After the smoky shock of the start there is a crispy fruit beer here. Peach, orange and the ubiquitous grapefruit. Cuts through the slight smoke easliy! Not bad at all!

Enjoyit (3086) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2009
Clear amber of color with an off white head. A pretty ordinary aroma of hops and bisquit. A flavor of citrus, bitter and dry.

Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: Typical golden/blonde ale, honey sweet pale malts, little hop character, slightly floral, boring.

harrisoni (12676) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Cask handpull at Folkestone JDW. Gold, lasting beige head. Looks and in terms of mouthfeel in good nick. Just a little dusty and dull in terms of flavours. Some stinging dryness on finish. Shame as in amazing condition. Lovely lacing just a bit dull and stale malt.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Cask, Lord keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby . Golden with an off white head. Aromas are thin biscuit malts. Dusty with dry hops. Flavours are thin malts with sugar. Nothing going on here. Really poor.

bobinlondon (1250) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Gold with short lived suddy white head. Mass produced amber fluid of undescribable mediocrity.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2008
<i>A Mes rate: cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.</i>
Semi hazy gold, pointless white film topping. Bland as hell caramel malt and crying out for some hops. Inoffensive but mind numbingly dull.
