Gary (1908) - Brentford ,West London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2010
Cask conditioned: Good Yorkshire ale ,that even us real(London born) Londoners can appreciate: These low booze English ales are not usually my bag, but the fruity, citric hop notes glide down in the spirit of real refreshment. I got mandiarian and must . Backdrop of sweet , caramel maltiness is good too. Just a straight up, plesant Golden session ale.

the other popular bitter around these parts but not as fine as theakstons. All round not a bad beer but just a poor imitation.

larsga (7337) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2009
Small white creamy head takes a long time to settle. Yellowish coppery hazy body. Faint floral wooden aroma. Dry-sweetish floral fruity resiny taste with wooden notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-to-thin body. Clean and fresh palate. Dryish floral watery wooden aftertaste with dusty resiny notes. Quite nice, but a bit thin. (0.25l cask, The Barony Bar, Edinburgh.)

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2009
From [email protected] Bar, Edinburgh. A hazy, pale amber body with a thin layer of beige foam on top. Yeasty and cellary on the nose, with a discreet, acidulous-fruity hop aroma, along with a scent of sourish malts. Fairly dry, rustic and edgy malt body. Moderate, earthy and slight peppery hop bitterness. Softly carbonated. Dry, bitter ending.
