chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. Gold. Some light hop. Some citrus. Nothing wrong with it but not too interesting. At a festival awash with similar beers, this one was fairly middle-of-the road. More evolution (in the hoppy direction) required.

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Cask gravity at The Bell Inn, Ivychurch, Kent. Dark gold, some haze, lasting thin white head. Earthy hop aroma, bit young in mouth. Good beer though, drinkable. Good stinging finish.

TBone (18216) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2009
[email protected] Clear yellow color, small white head, some lace. Light lemony aroma. Crisp lemony hoppy flavor. Some lime and sweet malts. A bit watery.

imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2009
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Lots of good citrusy hoppy notes from the start on quite a thin malty, biscuity body. Dry and bitter through to the finish, good stuff if a little thin.
