Cask at The Outlook, Reading. Vivid clear gold with a large white head. Initially it’s a bit thin and bland with just a hint of caramel and citrus. The hops take a while to wake up but eventually come through to give orange and a fresh leafiness and a mild but lasting and growing bitterness. There’s a bit of creaminess which doesn’t quite go with the hops- it needs to be crisper. Nevertheless it’s a better-than-average golden ale.

Cask at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Clear deep golden with an impressive white head and a fair bit of lacing. Grassy cereal aroma with a hint of vegetable. Taste is an improvement: a bittersweet malty base with fades to a pleasant bitter finish. Not much to it though. I remember this being better.

gegwilson (1455) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
A golden ale with a white head. Quite a sweet and fruity beer. A little washing up liquid plus peach and floral notes. Not for me.

Old fruity aroma. Tender and pleasant. Deep golden colour. Unusual clear grassy taste with subtle after hit of hops. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint on Cask at Guy Fawkes Inn, York, England (£2.80):
Mild on the nose with some bitterness and a few fruity notes that included some citrus. I could detect a little biscuit and a faint malt aroma as well. Not bad and pretty standard for the style.
Clear amber with a thin, creamy white head on top & sits about a quarter cm tall.
Biscuit malts and some bitterness with a light citrus flavour start things off. I got a few earthy hops as well plus a slightly sweet taste coupled with some bread and various fruits, most notably some orange.
Smooth with a medium and creamy body that came with low carbonation and a slight tang from the citrus plus a little sweetness. Overall the palate was quite dry.

A decent cask ale although the low carbonation made it seem flat in places but the flavours coming through made up for this some. I wouldn’t mind picking up a bottle of it at some point in the future if I get the chance.
