Cask, Dispensary, Liverpool. Clear golden colour with a thin lingering white head and decent lacing. Citrus hops the main theme here. Bit soapy, and started to tire of this as the glass went down wishing I hadn’t ordered a pint. Just not very interesting cgarvieuk (25693) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2008

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale straw with a thin white head; citrus aroma; simple citrus flavour with an underlying bready dough body; puch bitter finish, and an aftertaste of powdered ginger. Strange. dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2008
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Clear straw appearance, with a short head and some suspended particles just below the head. Fruity, grapefruit scent. Watery, bitter and very dry. Lots of lemon, and floral in the mouth, with a hint of a sweeter peach on the end. Nice but the bitterness was maybe too overpowering.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 1)The Buck and Bell, Long Itchington ’08. Anaemic yellow, slightly misty, nitro-creamy. Shandyish flat lemonade aroma. Hay, watery citrus, pleasantly mealy cornflake afters. 40% lager hops. No off-notes or anything, but Heineken’s got more hop character than this dribble of tedium. What’s the point? 535211.
2) The Mill Hotel, Chester. Straw with a dense white collar. Soapiness, wafers, impression of corn, lingering bitterness and peanut husk, cream custard crumbs. Faint tropical hop aroma. Lime coming through; good leafy hop and lime on nose as collar subsides. Just needs the hops turning up. Solid. 373613.

Cask at the Blue Bell, York. Aroma and taste of hay and citrus. A bit disappointing in its blandness. Not bad, but not great. Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2008
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with a light malty note. The flavor is sweet and more malty, combined with citrusy notes of hops, leading to a slightly bitter finish. The body is thin. Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2008
Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Yorkshire BF ’08. Golden colur with small white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, hoppy. Taste is pretty much the same with nice bitter finish. Decent enough beer. DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Putney Fest 2008: Citrus, cream, honey. Pours a clear golden yellow beer. Light bodied, sulphur, metal, grapefruit. Moderate bitter finish. albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. I’m sure I’ve had this better before; I wasn’t very impressed this time. It’s in the style of a Castle Rock Harvest Pale or Oakham JHB but without having the strong hop flavours or satisfying finish.
