JorgeLee (2167) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Cask at the Little Venice boats festival bar. Paleish golden colour, white foam. Smooth biscuity malts, satisfyingly rich, with a nice prickly spicy hop bitterness. Not hugely bitter but decently balanced. A nice strong bitter.

MRMedellin (319) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAR 5, 2017
Tasted at Ludlow Brewing.co in Ludlow. Clear golden beer with standar carbonation and stable white head, it’s quite hoppy and that is clear from the beginning, several floral notes and slight caramel ones are felt by nose, in mouth is a full body beer, with a moderate bitter aftertaste.

DeanF (2471) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Has a minimal aroma, okay appearance of brown-orange with little head. Flavour is soft gain and nothing more. Okay on the mouth, kinda weak, but drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (6772) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle from Appleyards Deli, Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden with a slight haze and a nice head. Nose - creamy lemon. Taste - lemon and barley. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - tastes better than it smells. Well balanced if unexciting.

Leighton (21853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a bubbly white head. Nice beer, with biscuity pale malts, lemony hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with sugary pale bread, a bit of bitter hay. Very simple but not offensive.

2.8
Theydon_Bois (20190) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Cask at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Pale golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is yeasty, straw, bread pangs, lemon rind. Taste comprises much the same. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a bitter linger. So so, doesn’t really do enough to justify its 5%!

3.2
madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
12th August 2014
GBBF Day 1. Cask. Clear pale gold beer, few white bubbles for a head. Palate is light and crispy. Light pale malts. Sweetish floralness and mild tangerine citrus. Whisper of lemon. Light dry finish. Not too bad.
