BlackHaddock (6796) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
9th Nov 2016: cask half-pint in The Shrewsbury Hotel (Wetherspoons in Shrewsbury). They appear to have removed Pinnacle from the pump clip. I found this blonde/light golden brew to be a little underwhelming, bland and little boring. Refreshing enough, but lacked depth and flavour for me. Scored kindly.

wheresthepath (2230) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Cask at the Bridge House (JDW), Chippenham. Golden-yellow with a thin white head. Sweet and malty, some lemon, some butter and vanilla. Ok.

stravale (2937) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2016
Cask @ Linen Hall JDW, Enniskillen [170916]
Blonde, clear, dense white head
Aroma of soft pale fruits, light sweet malts
Taste of lemon, light sweet pale fruity malts, citrus zest, quite hoppy
Palate is a bit dry, light bitter, soft sweet background. Finish is more bitter then a light bitter linger
Overall - Refreshing, quaffable

kwik-lime (1808) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Straw-coloured pour, nice balance of biscuity malt and light, grassy hop with plenty of citrus. Very drinkable session ale.

The_Osprey (7440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Naylors Pinnacle Blonde, 4.3%. Golden, still, pretty clear, small foamy white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is socks, rubbery, boiled sweets. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is more fruity than the aroma, light melon and citrus, smooth biscuity malt, soft bitterness in the finish. I could definitely drink a lot of this one.

rauchbier (3847) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and good condition. Some grainy malt, honeyed sweetness and a pleasant peppery spiciness in the nose, full flavoured and grainy in the mouth with a solid hop bitterness and a slight grapefruit citrus note. Finish is chalky with a lingering dominant hop bitterness.

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Light gold with a lasting frothy white head. Smels flowery with citrus, wheat and malt. Medium sticky body. Slight sour element to the taste of citrus but mild compared to an IPA. Dry hoppy finish, with a bit of plastic. Sweet taste that finishes bitter. Goes down easy. Refreshing.
