Cask at Woodin’s Shades, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a small, foamy white head. Dirty straw in the nose, some dry, crunchy white bread. Light sweet flavor with mellow straw bitterness, hints of dirt and grass, light lemon rind. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Faint resinous grass, straww and citrus fruit rind to finish, some dirt, light plastic, faint lemon tanginess. Simple little beer.

imdownthepub (15749) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. This had quite a sweaty character to it, scented and quite thin. Some spruce like notes. Not to my taste.

ManVsBeer (11722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2012
Nice subtle aroma and even better taste. Good hoppiness, great medium body.

allmyvinyl (11407) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from Belhaven Fruit Farm. Not much aroma, but some floral and malt notes, taste very similar, not a lot going on. Touch of citrus. Finishes medium length. Not a bad session beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Leeds 15/04/13. A golden beer with a tight white head and lace. A pleasant citrussy hoppy aroma. Hops good in the mouth too. Lemony. A biscuity dryness stops it developing too much. Still very competent.

Sigmund (8152) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
Cask (hand pump) at the Darlington Spring Thing Beer Festival 2011. ABV is 3.8%. Deep golden to amber colour, low head. Nice aroma of toffee, with a touch of citrussy hops. Light bodied. Dry flavour, with a solid dose of unusual hops (Savinsky Goldings and Green Bullet), some citrussy notes and a sharp bitter finish.
