Bottle. Pours a copper coloured beer. Somewhat sweet, notes of butter and hints of wheat and grass. Taste is predominantly of malt and wheat. Not great.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
About as gold as a 1974 2 pence piece. Odd copper limned with off white. Might be the wrong colour but it’s a decent bitter with a soft milky mocha-dunked biscuit linger and suspicions of chestnut and hedgerow fruit. Nose of pecan, washy granulated coffee, grilled vegetables and caramel. Long, cashew-like Hobnob biscuit afters. Pleasant. Bottle from Lidl.

Bottle. My first from this brewery in a long time. Golden with a small head. Slightly sweet with a gentle citrus flavour rolling around. Well balanced. An impressive session beer.

Cask@St. Urho’s Pub. Clear deep copper color, small white head. Butterscotch and malts in the nose. Light bodied. Slightly earthy flavor, light nutty notes, hints of toffee. Very watery palate. Feels dead.

jjsint (1663) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Cask at White Star, Stoke. Golden with a perfect white head. Very little nose: a bit of hops and citrus. Taste is sweet and salty, with a bit of umami/sour on the way down. Wooden Hand beers are a bit odd in my experience. On another day I would praise them for their bold approach but today I just want a pint. Drinkable but one is certainly enough.

StueyD (1543) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
A mid golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A pungent hop aroma, peach and a hint of orange, then a light biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A fruity hop flavour, a tad bitter, pithy grapefruit with peach, is followed by a dry, bready tasting maltiness. The finish is bitter and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. As a few raters have pointed out, quite dark for a Blond Ale. Dark gold with a tight white head. Fruity aroma. Again, flavours I tend to associate more with bitters: apples and brown bread. A little sweet..
