thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2009
Cask @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours hazy pale yellow-golden with a small, nice, creamy, white head. Lovely lacings. Lovely aroma, flowers, vanilla, hops, crisp malts and a bit of lavender. Low carbonation, light fat mouthfeel. Flavour has green tea, lavender, elderflowers on top of sweet doughy malts. Pleasant hoppy dry finish. Nice.

imdownthepub (9962) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2009
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Honeyed, quite sweet light beer with a peachy flowery fruity flavour. Soft and gentle, pretty reasonable.

maeib (8585) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Wenlock Arms London 16/05/12. A slightly hazy yellowgold coloured beer with a bright white head. A really lemony beer. Almost seems artificial in its fruitiness. A bit of flowery sweetness. Possibly not at its best.

JohnRMurdoch (3172) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Cask from The Edward Wyllie. Fresh fruity aroma, golden yellow colour. Nice sweet menthol flavour very smooth and nice, nothing like the bottled version which wasn,t very good.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. I prefer this to the bottled version. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with some barley in there. Williams house yeast aroma and flavour. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, some sweetness and barley. Foamy mouth-feel. Didn’t find this as sweet as the bottled version.
