Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, - OCT 16, 2011
On cask at The Standing Order. Pours a blonde colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of caramel, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with lingering caramel and alcohol. A little thin with an oily mouth-feel. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Just OK.

Cask Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2011 in Oct 2011 - Yellowy Gold in colour. Very Fruity; sweet tropical fruits, mango, pineapple. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Malty; sweet toasty malts, caramel, toffee. Tasty; tangy. Very good fruit/hop/malt balance. Sweet tropical fruity hoppy over sweet malts throughout. Liked this a lot. Very Good! (2011-10-12)

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Cask, The Standing Order (JDW), Derby, 29/11/11. Brilliant gold with a white halo. Honey on leather, lychee, satsuma aroma. Cream soda and lychee flavour. Thick mousse feel. Very good- the best on a trawl round Derby, which is disappointing.

downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Knights Templar (JDW), Bristol 16/10/2011. Golden with a decent white head. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma with plenty of hops. Flavour of biscuity malts, with more fruit and a lengthy, dry finish. Very good.

andsled (25) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Boston wetherspoons. My kind of beer. Aroma kiwis and pepper. Flavour is spot on. Pineapple predominates with good enough malt background.

3.5
bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Hand pulled cask at the Moon on the Mall (JDW) London. Gold with a white head. Typically hoppy Brewsters US style golden ale but I expected this to be far better considering that Centennial and Citra were in the recipe. Still good but finished a little watery.

3.5
leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2011
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Bright gold with a dense white head. Aromas are biscuit and caramel malts with peppery notes. Tropical fruit with lemon and pineapple in particular. Pine air freshener with hints of soap. Flavours are sweet mixed tropical fruit with yeast and soft spices. Underlying caramel with mellow lemon and some burnt toast. Dry and yeasty on the finish. Good.

DanielBrown (4546) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Hand pulled at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Nice lime fruit pastille flavour. Light oily mouthfeel. Very slight cracker in the finish. Good stuff - certainly appears stronger amongst the weaklings in the Wetherspoons festival.
