DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy amber ale with lacey white head. Fresh fruity malty aroma. Dense mouthfeel, well balanced with good carbonation. Pleasant blend of malty sweetness and bitter slightly metallic hops. Notes of bitter orange marmalade, citrus rind, spruce. Slightly dry finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2006
Rating #500, and it’s a cracking session beer from Glastonbury. Cask at Devonshire Arms, Bedford BF. Golden amber colour with a small white head. Wonderful honeysuckle and citrus aroma. Sweet, herby taste and a medium bitter finish.

jackl (8301) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Cask @ GBBF ’12. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. The nose is sugary, raspberry some cream. Notes of buttery sweet shortbread. The taste is much the same. Light zippy lemon and orchard fruits, creamy soft palate. Medium body, soft. Overall, very enjoyable. A suprise find!

Bottle. Golden and very clear.pored with a small head and was slightly bitter. Plenty of body considering its fairly low strength. A peasant and impressive bitter.

legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark urine- brass color; no head from cask. Some depths towards the middle of the glass. Very nice lingering hops. Surprisingly complex for a 3.8% beer.

Fin (10841) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2006
Cask at Merton Beer Festival July 7th, 8th 2006. Golden bitter with fruity, hoppy and flowery notes. Whilst the overall impression was that of a decent session bitter that maybe a touch on the sweet side there was also a slight fruitiness throughout constantly underpinned with a grapefruit zesty tang.

FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki) Golden amber, pure and clear. Citrus - orange and lemon - aroma. Full combination of malt and hops in the mouth. Classic English session bitter.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Juggling pints with Octo. A golden/blonde ale not a bitter really. This one wafts with lemony green hop crunch like a fresh pint of CE. Lagery gold with a slick of white. Whole hop tang with a digestive finish. Very simple, very hoppy, very nice. (Bottle) Filtered and pasteurised by the look of it. Watery citrus mingling with almond and pastry aroma. Feeble lemony notes, heavily diluted citrus with absolutely no hop sting in the finish. Lingering corn and crackerbread sweetness. Wet air, but the cask rate stands.
