Lacking the depth of flavour that the colour would suggest! Not the best from Itchen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the source. Pure golden color, white head. Aroma of papery straw. Taste is papery hay and straw.

Cask at the Edmund Rayne, Raynes Park. Pours light golden with a white head. Citrus aroma. Sharp edge. Bitter sweet finish.

Cask at The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light golden amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is tropical fruit and I swear a little honey. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth watery flowery spice hop palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. A super session ale. Lots going on.

This is nice beer. Aroma and taste come through nicely - light and hoppy. Pleasantly bitter. Just moved to Hampshire so trying out the local beers. This one is right up my street.

Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
Cask at wetherspoons. Pours a clear gold colour with a thin head. Nothing happening in terms of aroma - maybe a bit of light malt. Light body, thin. A touch appley, with lemon and grapes - quite winey. Dry and nicely bitter. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Desverger (12539) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2013
[email protected] Tringham JDW, Streatham, London - Pours a gold colour with small white head. Aroma of grass, slight hops grass, and mild malts. Not overly sure on this one, didn’t seem to be in that good condition, will maybe need a re-rate on this.

minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Cask at The White lion of Mortimer, Stroud Green. Mild citrus, pleasant and cool although would’ve preferred a much colder pint. Fairly pleasant session beer, but not enough flavour to get me buying another.

Theydon_Bois (20452) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence, 15/05/13. Very lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head that clears to the edge and a film. Nose is pale malt, light grapefruit, grass, citrus. Taste comprises floral hop notes, pale malt, grass, light orange, citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff.
