The natural spring water makes a big different to this ale in terms of texture.

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Slight haze on this gold beer. Residual suddy white head. Light semi dry palate. Mild floralness in this somewhat ephemeral beer. Trace of pea. Barely there hops. Dry finish. Inoffensive.

DruncanVeasey (10316) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Cask, The Wye Bridge House (JDW), Buxton. Very brilliant, thickly laced gold. Lightly buttered, lemony aroma with some pepper. Creamy, oatmeal-soft taste; cashew, light lemony and woody hop. Nice buttery afters. Light pine. Pleasant, maybe a bit Black Country. Surprising, actually.

berkshirejohn (8930) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
Cask at the John Logie Baird (JDW), Hastings. Festivals beers still on sale - so I guess somebody over ordered. THis one is straw coloured with a thin white head; the aroma is sour and grainy - but I didn’t guess that it was made with oats; the flavour has sour grain, some goosebeery fruit, and a touch of honey; the finish is dry, sour and yeasty. This is OK but nothing special.

cask at standing order ... light hazy golden yellow ... thin white head ... soft mellow mellon lemon fruits nose... little dull soft toffee fruits. ... wishy washy

Gravity cask at J J Moons, Ruislip Manor. Pale gold with a loose bubbled white head. Gentle citrus hops and slightly fruity malt profile. Refreshing and inoffensive but I’d hoped that the Chinook hops might have made this a little more distinctive.

downender (10741) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the JDW in Staple Hill, Bristol 22/10/2011. Clear gold with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of light, citrus hops with a touch of cereal malts. Flavour had some creamy malts, a touch of peach and dryish finish. Ok.

2.7
imdownthepub (22698) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with slight white head. How to describe very little is a problem sometimes. Watery, some caramel, thin, really pretty dull and yes, lagery. Didn’t get the Chinook’s.

2.7
leaparsons (12356) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are crisp lemon with honey and clean woody notes. Base caramel malts with cereal grain. Flavours are sweet lemon with thin, pithy grapefruit and yeast. Caramel and honey with a lightly hoppy finish. A bit dull.

Hand pulled at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Smells of nothing. Tastes of mostly, wait for it ... nothing. There is some boiled veg water, but even that is feint. Ungggg raarrrrrrrrrrrrr.
