thepatrickman (1286) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 18, 2017
On cask in Edinburgh. Pale and golden, just right for the style. The flavor was pretty restrained -- there was a bit of floral hop notes, but not what Id expect for "a blend of five different hops from the Yakima Valley" like the description says. Slight sour edge, although that was probably from the tap lines. Decent, but not terribly interesting.

Parmenion777 (259) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2017 Pours a light golden colour with a smooth foamy white head. Aroma is predominantly light malt, some grass and citrus hops. Robust grassy, astringent bitterness with some light malty sweetness and lingering bitter finish.

Cask @ The Masque Haunt, Old Street, London. Clear golden body with a nice white head. Mild but pleasant aroma of malt and light fruity hop. Flavor is smooth malt with mild fruit and moderate bitterness. Balanced body and OK aftertaste. A pretty smooth and soft ale that suits the cask.

The_Osprey (7835) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys, London as Oakham Inferno. Golden orange, totally clear and still with a diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is lemon boiled sweets, elderflower, some soap. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is lemonade and elderflower, white rose petals, assertive dusty astringency builds. A tasty hoppy golden ale but maybe a touch too astringent, reducing drinkability.

prawlie (1578) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Draft at Old Manor in Bracknell. Zesty, bitter and dry, yet still refreshing. Not the most fragrant of beers but smells quite nice. Fair body for a relatively weak beer.

mR_fr0g (11637) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Cask at the brewery tap, Peterborough. A mostly clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting soft white head. Aroma is soft bready malts, cereal straw and faint leafy citrus hop. Flavour is composed of rounded soft pale bready malts, lemon, slightly grassy. Palate is superb, mellow, easy going and perfect cask condition. Assertive clean hop bitterness. Good stuff.
