BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Aug 2006: I don’t like doing this, but it has to be said. I think this beer is produced by Adnams (who’s other beers I love)to try and get lager drinkers away from cold tasteless, colourless lager. To do this, they have produced a Real Ale which is almost colourless and tasteless. It is straw blond in colour and looks from a distance like a lager, having a white head also, so the advertising man is happy!. It just does nothing for me, there is no aroma, taste or anything else which would let you know it was a beer from Adnams. It is only produced in the summer, when Southwold is full of tourists and the Londoners who have bought half of the village as second homes, maybe they drink it.

berkshirejohn (6502) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale amber with a thin white head; floral aroma; floral taste; and a biscuity finish. Boring and bland.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Cask. Clearish golden. Fair white head. Served cold despite being on cask! Full-on flowery hops get treated roughly by major yeastiness that comes across extremely bready. Sweet kiss of malts is all you get in the finish. Promisingly aromatic, but really lacking some dryness to allow any level of drinkability this one.

SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
Catford Beer fest. Gravity. Glowing amber best bitter. Nutty fruitiness up front, a touch of toffee in the middle, and a gentle flowery hop finish. A nicely balanced and clean beer, though there are murky edges. Slight toffee in the aroma. A pleasant start to the fest while waiting for the boys to arrive.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2007
Bon accord. Good hop character, a nice light biscuit base. Very drinkable and also in good condition.

mr_h (5542) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Cask, festival ale, 1/3 pint, hand-pulled at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow on 29 Mar 2017, resiny, light citrus aroma, golden with a very thin white head and excellent thin film of lacing, biscuit, citrus flavours, creamy with a sweet aftertaste.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
[email protected] beer festival. Eggy, sulfury nose, bitter hops, nothing special, but decent flavour. Some lemon zest.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
Cask. Yellow beer with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a light fruityness. Malty and grainy flavor, boring.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2005
[Cask conditioned] Golden coloured. Quite boring and rather thin with light fruity notes. It tastes almost like a sweet cider.

BeerViking (4796) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Golden with a lasting fine head, aromas of golden malt and faint lemon, light bodied and sweetish, sort of halfway between a golden ale and a kolsch. Light and easy drinking.
