harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
500ml bottle from Sainsburys beer competition 2011. Clear gold lasting thick white head. Gently herbal hop aroma. It’s a decent beer in the mouth, with some good malts. Then some decent earthy peppery nettley finish. Yes, it went down pretty quickly whilst cooking.

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Part of the British Open of Beers. Pours clear, shiney, yellow-gold with a fine, white head. Zesty citrus aroma, hints of tart fruit, light pine. Lightly sweet flavor, tons of pithy citrus bitterness, faint bread. Light bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation. Crisp, clean and lightly dry finish, some zesty pine, light sweetness, short to medium linger bitterness. Not bad overall. Character could be a bit more robust, but really not bad.

imdownthepub (10023) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. Good, crisp biscuity malts at the start followed by a dry hoppy, slightly perfumed but fruity hop flavour. Some lemon, some orange notes, nicely fresh. Pretty decent.
