fonefan (51593) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011

Cask (handpump) @ Southampton Arms, 139 Highgate Road, London, Greater London England NW5 1LE.

Clear medium orange colour with a small, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, orange - citrus. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, fruity hops. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20101231]

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. A biscuity beer with some lemony hops. Digestive notes. It’s OK but unremarkable.

downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Eldon House, Bristol 15/05/10. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Sweet malts and citrus fruit aroma, with a touch of grassy hop. Flavour was similar, with fruity malts and a dry, citrus finish, Ok.

2.8
imdownthepub (15396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Orange gold with some white head. Quite a still, sweetish beer with a fruity malty feel to it. Some light, floral hop, but mostly a lemony, sweet flavour. Light finish.

2.8
DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
BC from The Wine Cellar. Lager gold with a slender white head persisting solidly. Quite an attractive aroma mingling faint sulphur,occasional farmyard, beeswax, orange and lime citrus, hop leafiness, boiled sweet caramel and almond. Dry, nutty and bittersweet with a lingering hop bite but plenty of softening vanilla, peanut and dunked biscuit. Too much acidity. Slick and soft with little fizz but plenty of condition. Like an unfiltered real lager, but enjoyable. Dowbridge are worth checking out, and whilst their bottle conditioning seems to occasionally impart an unwelcome acidity to their beers, it doesn’t detract hugely from their enjoyment, and embarrasses some of their local counterparts.

2.5
RichardGretton (4796) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly grassy and the flavour is grassy, yeasty, slightly malty and gently bitter. Overall a poor beer.

2.6
haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2004
Cask at Babington Arms, Derby. Orangy browm body, very thin white head, subtle lemon sherbert to the taste, bitterish in a thin finish. Yep; Another Average British Bitter.

3.1
leaparsons (10802) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2004
Hazy amber in appearance. Aromas are dry and spicy hops with pine. Flavours are dry, peppery with juicy malts. Dry on the finish. Pretty reasonable.
