1/2 at Gateshead ’spoons. Hazy gold with a dense white head. Grapefruit in the aroma, and predominantly in the flavour, tempered by sauvignon blanc flavour, and a candy aftertaste.Lots of tangy bite, fuller-bodied than you might expect. At the first sip I thought"Oh well, another of those grapefruity blond ales that are so ubiquitious at the moment", but this is more than the sum of its parts. Nice beer
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 15th April 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Fragrant hoppy aroma with clear elderflower notes present. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a light digestive biscuit base with fruity sharp flavours of gooseberry and kiwi juicy in the mouth. Pleasant hop resins give a floral aspect to the bitter hop resins and combine well with the malt. Finish is well balanced with biscuit and tart gooseberry coming through. Refreshing summer session Bitter.

Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as Mauldons Silver Adder. Pale golden yellow, clear and still with a bubbly white head. Aroma is airy, some muted biscuit. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is straw, woody, light biscuity malt, gooseberry, touch of lime. Condition seems pretty much perfect and it drinks pretty well, if a little simple. Maybe gets a bit too astringent and perfumey over time. Surprisingly hoppy. Quite a slow contemplation beer considering the lowish ABV. Hopverdju (1426) - BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2017

Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear straw colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, some mint, slight straw, subtle cereal malts and floral hops. Taste of lemon, mint, some herb, slight cereal malts, a hint of honey, subtle straw and floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A traditional golden ale with floral, slightly minty hops and a pleasant malt base. Surprising nice. Cunningham (8247) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2016
Soft to flat carbonation and warm…not very inviting and good. Hard to give a decent rating also.

Orange, small frothy head. Nice grainy aroma, pale malts. Very nice husky bitterness. Very refreshing and quaffable. Solid traditional bitter.
Bottle from a Suffolk farm shop. Blond with a frothy white head. Light citrus aroma. The taste is grassy with lemon citrus and light spice. Some madarin too. Refreshing summer drinking. jjsint (3425) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask @ Secklow Hundred (JDW), Milton Keynes. Deep lager yellow, perfect tight white head. Light aroma of lemon with a minty, almost astringent, sharpness. Taste is a bit more pedestrian: a fresh, sweetish start succumbs to a slightly acrid bitter finish and aftertaste. Still, a decent enough beer for a tick. allmyvinyl (10912) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Cask at The White Lady JDW. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of lemon and honey malt. Taste is light sweet, light lemon. Bit sweet and thin on the finish. OK.
