mR_fr0g (13523) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Cask gravity at the Watford beer festival 2017. A clear golden yellow coloured pour with a a fine white head. Aroma is sweet vanilla, diacetyl, grassy sweaty hop. Flavour is composed of semi sweet tangy malts, apple, sweaty, tangy apple. Nutty malts. Palate is tangy, moderate cask condition. Meh.,

The_Osprey (9163) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Cask handpull at The Pembury Tavern as Milton Sparta, 4.3%. Pours a translucent orange, still, scummy off white head. Aroma is airy, some lemongrass, lemon rind. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is astringent with notes of apple, grapefruit peel, waxed citrus, plasticky and quite astringent, little buttery almost. Just a touch out of balance but has some decent characteristics. Grew on me. (5-4-6-4-13=3.2)

3.3
BeerViking (5049) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Amber gold, thin head, toffee and lemon nose but light. Dry-sweet, light floral note, sweet-bitter finish.

john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Cask. Yellow Gold in colour. Aromatic. Citrus fruits. Grassy hops. Toasty caramel malts. Subtle bitterness. Good stuff. Very drinkable. (2008)

3.1
Mr_Pink_152 (5554) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Tried at the Strugglers Inn, Lincoln. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is citrus hoppy, so is the taste which is also light bitter.

2.8
minutemat (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2016
Cask @ Coach & Horses, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aroma bears malty hallmarks. Taste continues, not a lot in terms of hops, but the bready, grainy malts are there for those who want it.

3.7
tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Cask, Queen’s Head, Chelmsford, 16th January 2015. Typically benchmark golden colour with substantial white lacing. Hoppy Aroma. Some perfume, floral notes. Not ott grass or hey. Descent. Taste is grapefruit, lemons, orange peel, lemon bonbons, really good malt backbone. One of the better golden ales on the market. Top work.

3.2
Theydon_Bois (20646) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, 03/01/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is citric sherbets, tangy orange, tangerine, straw. Taste comprises orange pith, citric sherbet, straw, tangerine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent hoppy sessioner.

3.3
jjsint (3502) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 Cask at the Prince Albert, Ely. Deep, dark gold, with a ring of loose white head. Scent of orange peel, cherries, pine, a bit of astringency. Mostly sweet fruity taste, but a soapy hint near the finish takes the experience down a notch. Reasonably bitter aftertaste. Fuller palette than you’d expect from this style and ABV. A mixed bag but mostly a very positive experience.

2.8
kwik-lime (2044) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Cask at the Pemburey Tavern, Hackney. Pleasant citrus and grassy hops but low carbonation made it pretty lifeless and forgettable.
