DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
The Baron, 11/03/16. Barren indeed- 1 festival beer on. Fortunately it’s half decent. Low collared dark gold. Judicious squirt of red apple and tangerine fruit. Enduring cashew and rich tea linger. Smell of apple and melon. Gently perfumed. Plodding, bland, workmanlike, technically polished, unimaginative, entirely predictable but inoffensive as background. But enough about the music of The Stereophonics, the beer is OK.

Desverger (12907) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2016
[email protected] George JDW, Croydon - golden Amber pour with white head. Fruity and malty aroma and taste, with some grassy and light herbal hoppy notes, toasty bready malt backing, so so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerViking (5041) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2016
Cask at the Plough & Harrow, brown with a tight head and a pleasing malty and faintly fruity nose. Taste is hoppy-bitter and lightly tropical fruity. Very nice example of a best bitter, not a golden ale.

downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2016. Amber in colour, with a slight, white, head. Aroma of sweetish, hedgerow fruits, with a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had sweet malts, more fruit and a moderately bitter finish. OK.

Cimbasso (1003) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Sampled on draught at the John Baird. A copper coloured bitter. Caramel and some earthiness in the taste. Lightish mouthfeel. Not bad, but not very memorable.

berkshirejohn (6650) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Golden amber with a thin white head; fruity aroma; sweet malty body, then sour with an under-ripe grapefruit citrus taste that somewhat spoils the finish.
