Cask conditioned - handpump - Globe Leicester. A bright gold coloured beer with a sparkled white head and lacing. The aroma is lemony citricity with creamy head. The taste is light lemony hops. Drinkable but nothing fulfilling.

Fresh, light hop aroma. Flavour is light and slightly sweet with a sharper finish. Easy drinking and refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Nov, 2007 Medway Beer Fest A dry and robust blonde with honey notes and an English hop finish. A golden coloured best bitter. [2.8]
Feb, 2008 Gardners Arms, North Parade, Oxford. Part of the Oxford Pub Crawl. A fragrantly hoppy best bitter which is let down by an indifferent malt. Decent enough though a little too sweet. [2.8]

Cask @ The Masque Haunt, EC1 Oldstreet, London. Clear light yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate hoppy, apple, stewed apples w. macaroon. Flavor is moderate sweet and light acidic, with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Cask. Golden colour, mediumsized white bubbly head. aroma is very fruity, nectary and pleasant. Flavour is the same along with very wooden hints. A good and pleasant session drinking thingy.

johndoughty (5452) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle.Lively upon opening.Has that signature Holdens taste. Quite gentle with some bitterness.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2007
Counting house. A bit to cold, meaning minimal aroma, grassy anf oural is whats there. Taste is pale biscuity base, again floural with hints of citrus coming through.

berkshirejohn (6502) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Amber with a dense off-white head; fruity bitterness with some honey; pleasant bitter finish. Rather average.

50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Very similar, with a good fresh bitterness that’s unusual in a bottled beer.
