Tap, Market Porter. Light golden with a thinner white head. Bit of windex and soap in the aroma. Very wood bitterness in the flavor, dry, and crackery. Medium to thinner. Not bad. mile (3947) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2011

[3279-20100803] Cask sample. Leaf mustiness and a little floral hops in the aroma. Clear, light bright yellow with a medium-lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Bitter musty mossy log notes in the flavour with a long leafy hops aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting to try but not a favourite.

Cask, The Rake. Half. Excellent lager-hell meets pale ale appearance, stunningly clear, low particles, floral hops on the aroma, off-white lacing, sweet malts, grassy, traces of tropical fruit, exceptionally easy to drink, can make a perfect Spring ale if it is hot. Great work. Very very very drinkable. Leighton (21298) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2010
Cask at Bree Louise. Pours a pale yellow with a thin head. Hoppy nose with citrus and straw. Sweet flavor with light cereal and lots of hop bitterness, lemony. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Crisp, lingering bitters. Almost like an IPA. Very good.

Cask at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Clear gold with thick fluffy white head. Typical of the beers in Brian’s pub, fairly familiar Oakham style, nice bitter hoppy golden ale. Which ain’t so bad. What I would call barber’s type of beer. That’ll mean nothing to you but it does to me. Clean (almost too clean type smell) citrus hop aroma Flavour is hops, grapefruit, bitter finish. Nice. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-03. Crisp pale yellow, small frothy white head. 3+ Flavor is mild, light bitterness, odd hop profile, light lemon and some grassy notes, lingering bitterness. Aroma is floral, lightly grassy hops. Average to light palate. Do not care for it. perhaps Ember would be more appropriate? Cask at GBBF 2010

Cask at GBBF ’10. Pale gold pour with a white head. Citrus, caramel and malts in the nose. Fresh, sharp flavours of caramel, nuts and fruit. Malty, bitter flavours. Quite nicely balanced. Good bitter finish.
