Drinkable but bland. Have never understood beers like this...why be so unmemorable?

Cask Salmon Galashiels. Certainly hoppy, but the overall experience is marred by an overwhelming harsh citrus acidity.

wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 [on draught at the Old Road Tavern, Chippenham, Wiltshire] Tastes more like a golden ale at first but with a rough-and-ready earthy follow through. Drinkable but nothing special. Re-rate 21/4/2009 at the Peaks Inn, Castleton: Amber, mineral taste with some sulphur, leads into a very bitter, earthy finish. Not to my taste. c6

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 haven’t done in the past.Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 2.9

Pours amber with creamy head. Not much in the aroma. The flavor has some reasonable bitterness.

mabel (9787) - 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 (6177) - 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 (8882) - 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.
