downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Cask-conditioned at the Ackhorne, York 22/7/2017. Golden in colour, with a thin, off-white, head. Big, floral hop aroma, followed by a jarring contrast of heavy, sweet, malts, leading to a moderately dry finish. Got off to a good start, but tailed off.

imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2016
Cask conditioned at Cheltenham Beer Festival ’16. Hazy gold with white head. There was a dryish, tobacco, dry leaf note to the start of this beer, some bitterness but little else to hook on to. Largely quite a dullish beer.

2.9
ManVsBeer (10650) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Cask @ Three Pigeons, Halifax. Clear golden with a thinnish head. Has a very dry hoppy character, with this characteristic lingering long in the palate.

2.8
gegwilson (3724) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Gravity at the Guisborough Beer Festival. Blond with a thin white head. Not much aroma. Light citrus flavour. Very dull.

3.2
Towey1989 (2922) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of bubblegum, caramel, some orange, slight Belgian yeast, a little lemon and subtle red berries. Taste of bubblegum, Belgian yeast, orange, slight lemon, maybe grapefruit, some caramel, a little apple and subtle red berries. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A short, sweetish, bubblegum finish. A different kind of beer that I’m used to, mainly Belgian qualities about this, quite sweet too. Grew into it but not great.

3.6
minutemat (5659) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Cask @ The Salopian Bar, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold with thin white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Surprisingly sweet, yeasty taste. Belgian yeasty perhaps? Even some banana esters coming through. Very decent.

3.2
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Cask at The John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint. Good looking, golden-amber beer with a smooth, off-white head that leaves loose, speckled lacing. The nose is muted but fruity, with sweet apple, citrus and berry tones. Sweet caramel malts and prominent up front in the taste but there are plenty of more bitter, grainy hop flavours too. The finish is interesting, with sweetness lingering on the palate but the mouth being left quite dry. Decent golden ale.
