Handpull pint at the Cock Inn, Madingley. Dark gold, clear. Not much head to speak of... and not much aroma either. A bit of hay and wood. Taste is much improved, some honeyed sweetness with a bitter kick. Nice bitter golden syrup finish. Pretty good.

Not for me Im afraid. Watery old fashioned real ale from back in the dark ages. A little irrelevant (though to be fair before the craft ale revolution I was perfectly happy drinking beers like this).

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance -golden with the odd protein lump. Decent head. Nose - pale malt and lemon. Taste - lemon barley water. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a decent beer but not distinguishable from many others.

500ml bottle, bought at Sheringham by my Dad, drunk 30/06/13. Fuggles & Cascade. Barley from North Norfolk coast. Bit of a lively pour. Good white head, lasting well. Cloudy gold. Med-High carb. Aroma - Quite a nice, strongly cereally malt, bit yeasty and spicy-peppery, citrus hop. Taste - Lightly sweet, good pale malt, caramel, with good, tangy, mid citrus hop finish, lightly bitter & drier. Some nice, soft, juicy citrus flavour. Slightly yeasty & slightly wheaty. Lightly bitter, citrus aftertaste. Med body, rounded & soft. A nice, very drinkable, lightly citrussy golden ale, with a solid malt body.

BlackHaddock (6897) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Gravity poured pint at the CAMRA AGM in Norwich on 20 Apr 2013. Very pale golden brew with not a lot of head on show. Hoppy with a citrus base, nothing too strong: refreshing without testing your taste buds or sense of smell too greatly. Pleasant enough brew, but lacks a punch and body-depth in my eyes.
