imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The Wharf House, Oxford. Pale gold colour, lots of condition, bubbly, lacy head. Lovely light hoppy beer with lemon citricity and a warming natural sweetness. Floral, hoppy, peppery, a very fine beer indeed.

dynamiteninja (1590) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2010
Cask. Nag’s Head, Reading. Caramel malt, decent hop aroma. Caramel colour, with a long lasting white head. A little hazy. Average bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Light carbonation. Bitter finish. The name "Guzzler" is very fitting. It’s hard to pace yourself on this beer, it’s so tasty that you just want to guzzle it down!

realalechamp (41) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Pale malts, flowers, & fruits. A more distinct fruitiness gives this one a slight edge to the Terrier for me.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at the Yorkshire Terrier, York. This is just the kind of blond ale I like, and I especially like it when a beer this tasty has an ABV this low. It has a slightly hazy pale gold almost yellow colour, a fruity aroma with lots of citrus and the flavour is grassy with more citrus fruit. Very enjoyable.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Gravity, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Warm copper, small but persistent clean white layer of head. Fresh grapefruit and honey aroma, just a little distracting blackberry/belltone, but a very minor thing. Fresh light hoppy fruitiness, fine textured spicy carbonation, nice gentle warm toast finish. Really impressive beer at 3.6%. (Would still be a good beer at 2x the strength.)

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Pale . Up front leafy hoppiness with tangy fruit and a nice level of bitterness. Firm malty feel makes this drink above its strength. Good. 3.6
Apr 06Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Golden. Served cold dulling any aroma. Light flavoured with some yeastiness and bitter hops. Quite refreshing 3.0

Cask conditioned at Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow. Clear golden colour. Creamy mouthfeel and good good hoppy. Full mouthfeel at this abv-level. Very fruity and incredibly tasty. One of few good cask ales whilst in Glasgow.

Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear deep golden, thin creamy white head, weak sweet malty aroma, nice film of lacing, toffee, biscuit malt flavour, increasing fruitiness as it goes down, good carbonation, nicely balanced

SaintMatty (5536) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
