JorgeLee (2227) - Greater London, - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle. A pale yellow gold ale, this has quite a coarse grainy and slightly yeasty feel to it. The finish is a bit better with a decent hop bite. Ok. Rerate, GBBF 2013. Forgot I’d had this rather average beer before. Less grainy/yeasty this time, maybe because on cask, but still a bit dull.

Cask at The Forth Hotel, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Moderately hoppy, quite drinkable blonde. Nothing special, but not bad.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Cask @Malt & Hops, Leith [on or about 22.07.2017]. Pours yellow, slightly hazy, small white head. Nose and taste are all along the same lines with a big caramel nose, its yeasty, toffee, floral and grassy. Its also a bit thin.

Cask (Clarendon Arms, Cambridge) (6:3:6-:3:12-=3.0--)
Sweet popped corn aroma. Very sulfury taste, almost Greene King-ey. Finish is peas and pulses. Hmm, it’s not objectionable, but I suspect 3.0 is an overrate.

2.5
EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Cask in Crown Posada. Very pale Amber looking golden ale with a thin white head. Nose is sulphury eggy Burton snatch, fruity lemon n boiled sweet, light grains, slight pineapple. Taste is lightly fruity, pineapple, light cereal grains, but some of that eggy Burton snatch. Kind of spoils it.

Bottle. Pours a dark gold orange colour with a slight white head, aroma is light and hoppy with hints of fruit, taste is bitter and a touch watery with a dry bitter finish. ,

gegwilson (3793) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Cask in the Cottage Inn near Craster. Pours blond with a white head. No aroma. Ligt citrus flavour with a little spice. OK.

2.4
RichTheVillan (8213) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Cask at the Red Lion Kings Heath; clear golden yellow pour with a bubbly off white head, aroma has pale malts and a citrus edge, taste is your typical golde, citrus some malt action refreshing enough.

wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Cask at the White Hart. Gold with a white head. Citrus up front with a decent balance of biscuitty malt and a crisp finish. Just your average golden ale, but done well.

theprof (1236) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2016
Cask. Aroma mildly citrus and floral. Pours golden rather than yellow. Strong lacing. Medium carbonation. Solid with residual hop bitterness but I wouldn’t seek it out.

2.5
BeerViking (5041) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2016
Cask at the Crown & 2 Chairmen, gold with a very thin head, dry-sweet grain, light bitterness, meh.
