On tap at the Grape and Grain, Crystal Palace. Bright amber pour with a white head. Malty-fruit nose. Pear, kiwi fruit and yellow melon flavour. Fruity finish. Nice.

minutemat (5471) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Cask @ The Salopian Bar, Shrewsbury. Pours pale gold, small white head. Aroma is light citrus hop. Taste is moderately hoppy, lightly sweet malts, citrus fruit. Decent.

The_Osprey (7980) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Cask at Priorty Arms, Stockwell as ’Kent Pale’, 4%. Pale yellow, clear, bubbly white head. Aroma is bready wort, soft citrus, dried out lemon. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is a touch soapy, biscuity wafer malt, wort and malt sugars, soft bitterness. Mild and sweet. Has a touch of my homebrew about it - simple malt sugars and hop flowers and not much complexity coming from anywhere. But it’s still a very drinkable beer.

On cask @ Stormbird, London - UK. Color: clear golden blond beer with no carbonation and really small white foam. Smell: nice malt nose, good cereal and bread balance. Sweet enough, superb nose. Taste: light body with good malt taste with cereal and sweet notes. Well balanced with hops, grassy and floral. Very tasty, good attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet hoppy and wet bitterness. Superb pale!

yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2015
From cask. Pours clear and golden yellow, small white head. Aroma is citrusy and crisp hoppy. Flat malty, light fruity and rather bitter. Dry and toasted to bitter dry finish.

Cask (Craft, Islington)
Simple citrussy hop aroma, pleasantly bitter, nice sweet malts, but alas some diacetyl. Pretty boring golden ale. Just about interesting enough to not be actually bored by it. Sarah disagreed - "horrible"!

adasko (2232) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Jest dokładnie jak podano w opisie. Bardzo lekkie, bardzo pijalne piwo o ciekawym aromacie i pełnym smaku.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
On cask at Door Hinge, Welling. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Good hop aroma. Easy drinking well hopped pale. Citrus balance, not sharp at all. Good stuff.

Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Cask @ Craft Beer Co. Clapham. Clear very pale yellow color, small white head that leaves good lacing. Smell and taste lightly malts, nicely hoppy, nicely fruity. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice.

Oakes (17642) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Light bronze. Fruity ( orange) and herbal (savoury) hop nose. Slightly sweet up front, middle has just a splash of English hops. So it’s strange in construction but ok overall.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Islington. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Light citrus and floral aromas, caramel malt. Decent bitter taste and a clean slightly sweet finish. Good.
