downender (8939) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 2/12/08. Deep gold in colour with a frothy, white head. Tropical fruit and elderflower aroma. Flavour began with some sweet malts, before citrus hops and apricot fruit took over, leading to a decent dry finish. Good stuff.

3.6
imdownthepub (15426) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. Bright, light hoppy beer, fresh and tasty, packing a bigger hop note than expected. Grassy with hints of Kiwi fruit and peach. Really quite pleasant.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2007
