zacgillbanks (5726) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2018
Bottle from Boots and other Christmas Gift Pack. Hazy straw coloured with a thick white head. It has a smooth toffee and fruity flavour with caramel and floral notes on the gentle earthy finish. Not bad.

Leighton (23107) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2018
Bottle at home in Hackney - picked up from the bargain bin at Waitrose Canary Wharf for a quid. Pours clear yellow-gold with a small, creamy white head. The nose holds sun-kissed pale biscuits, light grains, lemon peel straw. Light sweet flavour with mellow bitterness, more straw and pale grains, moderate citric hops, more lemon peel. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Tidy finish, some further crunchy pale grains, lemon peel, lightly bitter straw. Somewhat basic, but also fairly classic. Enjoyable.

Clear golden beer, thin white head. Floral, hoppy scent. Flavour is hop, citrus, malt. Dry finish with an edge of fruitiness. It's nothing remarkable but they're right on the description, it's thoroughly drinkable for it's strength. Very sessionable.

Golden colour with thin soapy head. Aroma and flavour have light floral hops. A little bit buttery.

3.6
explosivedog (1927) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 11, 2016
Straight from the cask at the Horseshoe Inn. Pours straw gold with no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, and there’s peach and flowery notes in the taste. Really very pleasant.

2.9
ForlornHope (549) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a clear light amber colour with a thin white head. Slight aroma of citrus hop. Taste is sweet to start with a gentle balancing bitterness. Crisp malt, some fruit. Lively carbonation, refreshing but underpowered. Nothing special.

4.4
SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Hop Inn, Southampton. Fresh and drinkable. I could drink this all day long. Pleasant opal fruity flavours in a refreshing biscuit malt; all topped by hop leaf fresh English hops. The combination and balance of flavours is wonderful. Perfect session bitter.

2.8
ManVsBeer (11487) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Huddersfield Beer Festival. Golden with a small head. Session ale with a balance of malt and hop, with the former slightly more dominant.

3.5
jamesie1857 (1989) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
On cask at Three Judges, Glasgow - Orange gold body with a thin white head. Nose is orange citrus, with a bit of grassiness to it. Soft mouthfeel, a juicy malty taste, with a rather bitter finish. Not too bad.
