Cask handpump. A golden colour with a floral, yeasty aroma. A nice floral hop taste with hints of citrus and yeast. A nice easy to drink bitter.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Cask conditioned - handpump - Fellows, Morton & Clayton - Nottingham. A light amber coloured beer with a whitish thick head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy whereas the taste is clean and balanced and typically Yorkshire in style. I can see the appeal of this sessionable beer which I havent done in the past.Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 2.9

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2010 [689-20070925] Cask @ Royal Oak (Oxford, OX). Sweet and hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet grainy malt flavour has a bitter finish. Medium body has good balance of bitter and sweet. Quite nice, repeatable. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

[3234B-20100801] Cask. Beery grains aroma, not a lot but a little butter and hint of smoke. Clear, amber body with a quick foamy white head. Fresh unbaked bread dough yeast flavour has a hint of dusty smoke. Medium body. Interesting, good to sample. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Clearish golden ale covered by a lasting white cover. Sandy, floral and quite bitter beer with a rather generic maltiness. No real toastiness shows hop, it hesitates on a strawy character that lacks confidence. Nevertheless, it packs a fair bitterness and finishes with punch and length.

downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
Cask-conditioned at the Plume of Feathers, Bristol. Amber coloured with a minimal head. Aroma had some fruitiness and floral hops. Flavour had some biscuity malt and a dry slightly hoppy finish. Ok.

1/2 pint at The Wharf in Aalborg, Denmark. Amber color, off-white head. Floral and some bitterness - but much too thin for my taste.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Cask at Charlies Bar in Copenhagen. Pale brown/amber color with a small head. Light aroma of fruit, yeast and floral hops. Tastes of citrus, banana, some bread, yeast and light hop bitterness. Flat carbonation. Nice, goes down very easy. 080225. Cask at Mathers, Edinburgh. Overall: 3.3

Fin (9796) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask at The Crown, Charlton-On-Otmoor 28-09-07 Poured amber in colour with small white head. A nice fruit beer, sweeter than I recall but with a nice hoppy flourish and dryness at the end, a tasty session beer, and another beer that I cant believe that Ive not rated before.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
Cask. At The Harp, Covent Garden, London. Clear amber pour, with a decent lasting frothy straw-coloured head. Quite a roasty sweet caramel aroma to this, but am I picking up the dreaded diacetyl? - It seems a tad papery and artificially sweet, but the dry herbal hops are decent. The taste - less of that buttery, caramel pudding character, the sweet malt is a little roasty, and the dry herbal hops are again just fine. Very light body, perhaps too much bitter astringency for the sweetness of the malt, a bitter, dry linger doesnt detract too much, but the weakest thing I had at The Harp when all is said and done.
