Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Inn Northampton. A bright gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A fusty aroma with a bit of stale citrus hop. The hops are better in the mouth with nice orange notes. Served a little warm. ladnewton (1961) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 11th February 2010. Crystal clear gold with small, thickly lacing off-white head. Slight yeasty aroma, soon hoppy with grassy bitterness. A lingering, tickling bitterness on the roof of the mouth with a bitter, but rather short-lived finish. imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2007
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Pale amber with white head. Gentle little session bitter, nicely balanced with a sweetish biscuity malt, a touch of peach in the background then a gentle fragrant, bittersweet hop. An enjoyable start to the days festivities.

Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Yorkshire Terrier, York. Biscuity malt and slight caramel sweetness. Peppery hops to start but they are quite restrained in the finish. Light and refreshing chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2011 Cask (handpump) at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival 2005. Pale amber colour. Distinct diacetyl notes on the aroma, which I found off-putting. Otherwise, it’s a reasonably well balanced, moderately hoppy, but unremarkable session bitter. Too delicate to cope with the intrusive butterscotch. Sadly, not in peak condition methinks. [4/3/6/3/12 = 2.8]
RE-RATE. Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 17 January 2011 - meet the brewer night, with 10 Mighty Oak beers on tap. Looks good - bright darkish amber with sparkling condition and a thin white head. Much fresher and cleaner than when I tasted it before. However, tasted next to a lot of ebullient golden ales it came over as a rather staid traditional English session bitter. Solid but not too exciting. Score updated [6/4/6/3/12 = 3.1]
