UPDATED: MAY 16, 2021 Bottle from Asda. Pours a clear light copper colour with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel and floral hops. Taste has more caramel and floral with a little peppery spice, a touch of orange and biscuits. Thin to medium body, low carbonation and smooth oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. it’s ok but a bit boring.

Pingaware (214) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2020 50 cl bottle (BBD), received as a gift, drunk at home 2020-04-18. Appearance is a very slightly hazy pale amber, with the thinnest of white heads that lingers and a surprising amount of visible carbonation. I want more head, but it's attractive enough. Aroma is pretty nice if a little subtle - there's a touch of sweet citrus up front, with some orchard fruits and maybe a grassy hint. Beneath that, there's a malty white breadiness. A little stronger would be appreciated, but this is a good English-pale-style aroma. Taste isn't quite as nice but isn't bad. Up front there's the fruitiness from the hops - elderflower perhaps? - which then moves into more malty bread - brown this time though. A botanic bitterness comes through on the finish. Again subtle. Palate is okay - light bodied, but a nice level of carbonation in the mouth. Quite clean and a touch juicy with a medium length finish. Overall, this is what I think of as a good old-school British cask pale, or more realistically golden. Fruitiness up front but a nice malt core comes through towards the end. I'd like a bit more oomph in the aroma and flavour, and definitely a bit more head, but this is a good beer - I'd really like to try it on cask!

Cimbasso (1869) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2020
UPDATED: APR 16, 2020 Bottle from the Co-op in Williton. Pours a deep golden colour with a white head. Good carbonation. Good malt flavour with notes of toffee and a light bitterness with hints of citrus and leaves. Quite fruity and a decent mouthfeel considering the ABV. A very pleasant light pint suitable for a warm day in the West Country.

dchad56 (1243) - - JUL 22, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2019 Bottle - Clear Golden amber with small head which dissipates to thin. High carbonation. Decent pleasant citrus aroma. Ok mouthfeel. Good tasting tasting, crisp with decent citrus tang finish.

3.3
imdownthepub (22698) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2019 Bottled, 500ml from Morrison's in Tiverton, Devon. Gold to amber with white head. Barbeque beer, there is a biscuity, reasonably light body, some leafy hopped notes, a touch of bitterness, a touch of fruity sweetness. It's fine.

3.5
Sigmund (11908) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2018
500 ml bottle, from The British Corner Shop. ABV is 4.2%. Beautiful clear deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of malts and grain, hints of toffee, also a whiff of dark fruits. Malty and biscuity flavour, a little fruit, again a hint of toffee, moderate hops. Fair enough.
