Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Nice golden with an off white head, that, true to it being cask, disappears quickly. For a British beer this has a very distinctive hoppy aroma: loads of classic British hops makes one feel as if taking a stroll in a hop garden in Southern England.
On the palate the beer is lively (impeccably handled by the staff at The Harp), bursting with hops and a biscuity malty background. Super beer and one, that I’d love to have as my session beer for a night at the pub.
Cask at Greyhound, Hartshill. Pours golden. Full bodied citrus led session ale. Decent. Rubin77 (2128) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 3, 2017

Pint on cask. An excellent golden ale. It lives up to its name, with a good amount of hop flavor at the end, but it’s also balanced and never overpowering. Great flavors of grapefruit and flowers that really come out at cellar temp. beer_head (45) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth.
Pours golden amber with thin frothy lasting head. Decent aroma of hops, grapefruit and some hints of malt. Initial taste of grapefruit and a slight hint of grass leading to a slightly bitter, but somewhat refreshing aftertaste. Light carbonation. Not at all bad and easy drinking. Plenty of flavour for 3.8 ABV. Davros IX (359) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A nice easy drinking light bitter. Light hops and malt and very thirst quenching. I served it on the cool side and that was perfect. It is one of my favourite summer beers.

Cask at Harp in London. Beautiful clear bright pale golden with a lazy one-finger white head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, elderflower, citrus. Flavor is nice, dry, crisp, pale malt with a good hop punch. Light on the feel and drinkable with a nice soft carbonation. Really awesome for the blond ale style. avantbland (15) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
One of my favourite easy-to-drink golden ales, and as it’s 3.8% you can easily drink it all night. Not a particularly intense flavour, but a delicious one... although nowhere near as hoppy as the name implies. thejackpacker (451) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Cask at the crown Eastbourne. A really solid golden ale and I’m really pleasantly surprised at the abv. Incredibly drinkabls, light, with flavour. Yum.
