Appearance - amber with a very thin head. Nose - toffee and apple. Taste - more apples. Toffee again. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish . Overall - decent bitter.

Cask half pint at No. 7 Market Tavern, Mayfair. Deep golden colour. Malty aroma, a hint of malt vinegar. Smooth and malty flavour, pleasant to drink, but could use a bit more hops.

A bit insipid. An inoffensive golden ale. Bit too light and carbonated but drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Rose & Thistle, Frimley Green. 15/09/16. Sweet floral aroma. Medium amber. No head to speak of. Short touch of sweetness followed by medium bitterness. Finish gets more sour. Light bodies. Slightly watery. Not bad. Wouldn’t seek out.

Cask @ Sawyers Arms, Manchester. Golden with a small creamy head. Has a light, pleasant fruity character and is very easy drinking. Some sweetness in its nose.

Cask. Ljus bärnstensfärgad med ett långvarigt smutsvitt skum. Frukt, blomster, karamell och gräs i såväl smak som doft. Fin beska. Medelkropp.

Cask, hand-pulled, Drum & Monkey, Glasgow, fruity, grapefruit aroma, straw, good off-white head, negligible lacing, earthy, citrus with a prolonged bitter near sour finish, oily.

I think this is the correct beer, I had it on tap in Witney and I wrote down The Godfather. Fruity smell, floral with caramel. Lots of flavour in the taste. Long strong bitterness.

275ml Bottle. slightly hazy amber beer with a decent steady white head. Aroma a lovely malty lemon, quite potent. Taste is rather full with a yeasty flavour encompassing a lemon bitterness. Slightly "floury". Light ABV, High taste! Quite impressed! :)
