Beese (2742) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
50cl bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear golden colour, with a medium, white head. Aroma of grassy hop, satsumas and candy sugar. Biscuity malt flavour, with flowery hops and tinned fruit. Finish was slightly metallic, with some mineral and grainy notes.

Cask (gravity) @ The 18th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2012, Reading, Berkshire England.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, open and frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly diminishing to lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, tea, toasted, light to moderate hoppy, grass. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, sweet tea. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120503]

500ml Bottle:BBD 19 Apr 2013. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard 7 days before it’s BBD. Slight haze to my golden beer with a large foamy, white head: carbonisation bubbles rising throughout the tasting. Pleasant blend of flavours, hops first with the biscuity malts taking over mid-way through the sip, which in turn gave way to a semi-bitter dry hop finish. Most likely the best Diamond Jubilee beer I’ve had so far (one more in my stash).

ManVsBeer (10467) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Slightly clouded golden ale with a pale tint. Small head and light malty character with a medium bitterness and fuller body.

zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from Tesco, Wallsend. A dark golden ale with caramel and citrus fruity flavours followed by a dry, woody finish.

mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2012
Aroma is quite fruity with some light floral hop. It’s really smooth and easy to drink. Has a great balance of flavour. Lightly fruity malt and a fresh hoppy finish with just a light bitterness.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle for £1 from Tesco. Sweet weetabix malts, boiled sweet fruitiness and a moderately bitter finish. This showed most of the characteristics of a badly bottled English bitter. Sink pour, looks like I got a bad one.

berkshirejohn (6501) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Still being sold off at a pound a bottle at Tesco’s, Andover. Amber with a billowing cream head; grassy hop aroma with a touch of lemon; soft, malty body; with some clean hops to finish. According to the label these are fresh aromatic hops from around the Commonwealth - but they seem to be maily Fuggles and Goldings to me.
