[CASK: The Salisbury Ale House, Manchester 24/06/06] A tast pale ale with a distinct flavour. A most pleasant and refreshing ale.

Cask at Ye Old Mitre in Ely Place. Light floral hop aroma. Pale gold color with a slight white head. Starts with floral hop, passing through some mild balancing malt, ending in lightly floral, mildly bitter finish.

I REALLY enjoyed this beer. Smooth and creamy and lovely. Light yellow color dry, malty, with some citrus.

StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
A mid amber golden coloured beer with a thickish white head. A light, floral hop nose with plenty of citrud fruit aromas as well. The taste is dry, floral and citrusy, a little grassy, then a smooth, light malt flavour comes through. The finish is dry. A good session ale, but again, not really an IPA. (Cask - The Ouse Amateur Sailing Club, King’s Lynn, Norfolk).

Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2007
Cask at c4, Odense. Malty with a good dry bitterness. Very fruity flavours (citrus). Good head. Malty & floral. Medium carbonation (cask)! Highly enjoyable Cask ale!

Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam shrouds the nearly clear golden.
-Toasted grain sweetness and mild fruitiness are surely precursors to the tasting experience.
-Juicy citrus fruit and mellow honeyed sweetness know how to please.
-Carbonation’s extremely low, yet this 3.8% brew manages to show a lovely body.

What if you dig deeper?
-Biscuity maltiness shyly lingers, alongside the supporting hoppiness.
-This is an incredibly drinkable golden bitter.

On cask at The Phoenix Inn, Inverness.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Handpump at the White Horse in Oxford. Pours a deep golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, floral with no malt. The body is watery with a fair amount of CO2 esp. for a cask ale. The flavors are really muted. Some sweetish malt, light herbal hops and not much else. The finish is fairly bitter. Not a bad beer but calling it an IPA is downright fraud.

Rune (12777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2006
During a couple of drinking weeks in England, I had three half pint of this Scottish pride. The best kept version was served at perfect temperature at The 11th St Albans Beer Festival. Golden coloured body with good clarity topped by a low filmy layer of foam. Nice floral aroma mixed with hints of roasted grain. The flavour is well balanced with a skilful blend of earthy hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Gentle, dry finish. Moderate bitterness. At its best, this is very moreish drink. But the bottle version is still better(29.09.2006).

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2006
Fully golden colour with a small white head. Hoppy floral aroma with a light citric note. Light malty sweet flavor with a hoppy citric fruityness.
