downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Coronation, Bristol 31/3/10. Pale gold in colour with a decent white head. Light, citrus hop and sweet malt aroma. Soft, fruity flavour with lemony hops and a short, dry finish. Ok.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Cask at Gallows XIII Real Ale Fest. Pours hazy yellow with rocky white head. Taste starts light bitter, develops a deeper bitterness. Light-to-medium body, aromas of light hops, cheese and something nice I couldn’t identify.

weaselkenievil (1609) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Cask at the Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Eventually cleared to a pale gold with thick cream like white head. Hoppy with a fair dollop of fruit, peach and lemons. Pretty dry in the finish, nice bitterness. Good!

zim999 (1) - ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2009 does not count
floral, herbs, pale, golden, clear, white foam, very bitter, hoppy with a kick,full body, lively, astringent, and all too easy to drink

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2009
Cask at Artillery Arms, Ramsgate: Very fruity pale ale with bags of hops. A fair amlunt of citrus in aroma and flavour. Not a bad beer, but I found it a little dull. It would no doubt be more enjoyable on a hot summers day.

peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Pale golden beer with a crisp hoppy taste full of citrus flavours and a lasting bitterness. Poured with a very large white head which doesn’t seem to want to disappear. A really good summer ale that wouldn’t be out of place at any time of the year.
