ManVsBeer (11487) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle from Vinomundo, Conwy. Orange-blonde with a thin head. Hopped, but a strong grainy influence, with a rawness in this respect that’s very evident in its nose and provides a mild grittiness in taste.

zacgillbanks (5726) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle from Vinomondo, 19 High Street, Conwy. Straw coloured pouring with a large white head of foam. It has a lemon and gentle floral fruity flavour with slight peppery hops and earhty notes on the smooth finish. Very Nice!

Pint at the Comrades Club, Haltwhistle during, our Tyne Valley beer jaunt: (Return rail ticket from Newcastle to Haltwhistle that allows you to get off and back on at any station on the return leg, £10.60p). I note previous raters didn’t find this in the best condition. No such worries at the Comrades. Bright sparkling pale gold with a dense white 1/2 inch of head leaving lacing down the glass. Pineapple and mango aroma Peach, tropical fruit salad, and sweet ruby grapefruit flavour. Delicate astringency in the finish. Light bodied, soft carbonation. Unanimously voted beer of the trip. I hope we meet again.

Cask @ Bree Louise. Notes of knäckebröd and apricots. A bit skunky (bad beer or bad cask?).

Bree Louise. Cask. Almost.clear gold beer, no head. Palate is light and dry. Very low carbonation. Honeyish pale malts. Little apple. As Leighton said - tired lemon. Trace of dust at the dry finish. It’s okay but hamstrung by the poor condition the Bree Louise served it up in.

2.6
Leighton (23107) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours clear gold with pretty much no head. The nose has grains, toasty pale malts, hay. Light sweet flavor with more grainy, pale malts. Light bodied and mostly flat. Some husky grains to finish with licks of orange rind, ripe lemon and hay. Shabby.
