omhper (25378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2016
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden. Fruity nose with some spicy hay. Mid sweet with light-medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Ripe fruit, hay and vanilla, notes of butter. Mid bitter finish.

Pump clip said Elland Blonde in The Station, Oakengates Shropshire on 2nd Jan 2016, so I had a half for the tick: this was the third and final citrus flavoured golden brew I had in this pub on this occasion. The lemon aroma and taste were subdued or subtle depending on your stance, the malts trying to overpower the citrus hop base nose and flavour. The best of the three I had.

Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Cask at JDW. As ’Elland White Hart’. Clear dark golden shade. Rings of white head. Notes of candied fruits and straw. Moderately bitter taste with some dryness. A bit heavy for 4% so not the most drinkable but some nice flavours within.

mr_h (5752) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Cask, hand-pulled, Bon Accord, Glasgow, vanilla, pale malty aroma, golden with a thin white head, sparse lacing, cereal, creamy malty, good carbonation, very easy to drink.

ManVsBeer (10806) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Pale yellow with a small head. It’s pretty much what it says on the pump clip, it’s a fine bitter with a high bitterness and lots of malty-hop character.

markas101 (2483) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Cask, The Sheffield Cathedral Beer Festival. Medium gold, slight haze. Sweet honey and ginger aroma. More ginger and lemon on the first sip, then warm citrus hops. Finish is bright with caramel at the end.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel Northampton. A pale blonde beer with a white head and lacing. A dry Yorkshire bitter. Decent light hop flavours. Some orange notes but a bit of rubber. Quite normal.

imdownthepub (15008) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’11. Clear gold with white head. Crisp, sharp malts wit a rich tea biscuit type character. Reasonable hop notes to balance up quite nicely. A decent sessionable bitter.

harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2011
Cask gravity at K&ES Railway BF 2011. Pale clear gold thin white head. Cracking condition bit of hard candy but extremely pleasant. Easy drinking but not a best bitter.
