Tasting notes from 2002 Harbury beer festival. Straw-Golden with slight haze. Mild citrus and fruit aroma notes. Hop bitter front with mild sweet malt finish. Dry Hop finish. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
Cask Stillage at the King George’s Hall, Blackburn 06/09/2001
Golden coloured hoppy and slightly fruity. Full hop finish. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Cask (handpulled) at the Bishop Blaize, Derby. Well, we had the hot summer day for it but this beer underdelivered. Pale, undemanding gold, slight malt but not thirst quenching stuff. DanielBrown (4520) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2005
Hand pulled at the Corner House, Birmingham. Slight cloud to this golden ale, with a nice, long lasting frothy head. Quite a bit of flavour here I thought, with a distinct and sweetish hoppy flavour. Finish is good and long and this does pack in more than 3.8% of taste. Has the slightly swirly hop juiciness that good UK beers do not manage as often as they should. Liked this. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2004
Another gold lager coloured summer quaffer, much like the Downton Chimera Wheat I had immediately before. This one had a bit more sweet malt and a soft mouthfeel, but still managed to be refreshing. Not much in the way of aroma. Cask (handpump), Crosse Keys (JDW), City of London.

Cask Conditioned, at The Crosse Keys, in The City. imdownthepub (14755) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2004
Light pale colour, white frothy head. Looks for all the world like a larger, frozen in time, motionless. Pleasant bitter flavour with moderate to good length on the palate.
Cask conitioned at a Wetherspoons. Light golden beer woth thin head. Light dainty thinnish beer with a sweet gentle malt. Gets to be a little crystal bitter in the finish. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2003
Coudy straw in colour, this beer has a zesty fresh aroma. Flavours are light and fruity and as crisp as an autumn morning. T'aint bad. Ungstrup (37889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
The aroma is slightly hopy. The color is golden and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor starts out bitter, turning sweet in the middle, to give way to the bitterness again. A very drinkable summer beer, but nothing special. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2002
Golden; hazy; wheaty aroma, w/slight citric hop note; soft, creamy body; still finishes refreshing despite its lightness, lack of acidity and general malt-accent.
