FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, - AUG 19, 2011
Cask (GBBF2011)
A pleasant hoppy bitter, with a nice wooly finish. Its nice to have some interesting fresh hoppy tastes in my mouth after a trough of boring bitters.

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol, 1/9/2014. Golden with a slight, white, head. Easy drinking for the ABV, with some cereal malts, touch of tropical fruit and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

saxo (17970) - Hjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle. Nice frothy head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sour brett, stable, malt, fruits, flowers and hops. Not sure brett is intentional but I like it.

berkshirejohn (6374) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2011
Cask at the White Rock Hotel, Hastings. Straw with a thin white head; the aroma is grainy and faintly citrus - Im not sure at this point whether this is a Golden Ale or a cask lager; quite thin in the mouth, but with an assertive flavour - some indistinct sour fruit and some strong grains, with a touch of honeyed sweetness; then a dry finish. Interesting, but I dont think Id venture beyond one of these.
