Cask handpull at Cask Pun and Kitchen, Pimlico. Very pale gold with lasting white head. Sweaty sox hoppy aroma. Decent session beer with just a bit too sweaty sox. Good drying finish though.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2004
Very pale gold colour - a bit anaemic looking. Aromatic - at first I thought there were Cascade or First Gold hops, but I see it uses German lager varieties. The flavours are citric and a little sharp, but the finish settles down to be clean, gentle and lasting. The body is a mite thin, but it makes a decent thirst quencher. I rather liked this. Cask (gravity), Thurrock Beer Festival.

Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2007
Cask at the Flowerpot, Derby. 08-09-07 I don’t really know what was wrong with this, it poured fine, golden in colour and with small white head, good clarity, but tasted soapy and quite poor, I really should’ve taken this back but it was the end of the night, I’d had a rake of ale and my dad was threatning to go onto the Thomas Sykes next at 10%, poor beer to end what had been a great day of generally very good beers.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Pre-strike night with Octo, The Flowerpot, Derby, 29/11/11. Wet gold, slim lid. One of them. Sappy, dandelion and almond aroma. Lemony with light sulphur. Pleasant. Finishes with dunked malted milk biscuit. Dab of marg. Weedy. But at 3.6% can’t really complain.

Svesse (6042) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 20 Nov 2013) Pale yellow colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with biscuits, bread, grass and slightly dusty hops. Fruity, malty taste with note of citrus, peaches, biscuits and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Fairly thin, but refreshing and quite nice.
