Towey1989 (1997) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Cask at The Reginald Mitchell, Hanley (JDW) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, lemon, slight lime and subtle floral hops. Taste of biscuity malts, lemon, some lime, slight orange and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, subtley tart, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Quite citrusy, some sweetness from the malts bit overall just a very average golden ale.

tombyars (1621) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 24th September 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Floral dry hops present in the light hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a slight biscuit base with weak lemon coming through. Hop increases in the bitter aftertaste with resins imparting an astringency. Finish is light but hoppy with dry oak cask and lemon tart notes evident on the palate. A poor summer session Golden Ale, lacking in complexity - and bananaís!

Biroholik (969) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Cask @ White House, Luton
Kolor ciemnozłoty, czysty jak łza. Piana biała, umiarkowana, drobnooczkowa, lacing odpowiedni w kierunku dobry. W aromacie i smaku słodowe z minimalnym muśnięciem chmielu. Przez chwilę powiało lekkim masełkiem, ale půźniej było już OK. Dominują zboża, ciasteczka, biszkopty, płatki owsiane, odrobina miodu, na koniec delikatny cytrus. Jest także spora kwiatowość. Ciało lekkie, tekstura podobna. Nie jest złe, ale nie ma się też czym tutaj zachwycać.

The_Osprey (6826) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask HP at Hamilton Hall London as íHanlons Yellow Hammerí. Golden yellow, still, pretty clear, small white head. Aroma is mostly battenberg cake, sugary malt, sweet fruited breads. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is nice and balanced with musty floral hops, touches of lemon cake, malted milk biscuits and wafer, with a resinous finish. Certainly something I could drink all night.
