downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 7/08/10. Sweetish, golden pale ale, with some citrus hips in the finish. Easy drinking, but not memorable.

RichardGretton (4686) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2010
[email protected] Beer Festival 2010. Golden beer with an airy head. The aroma is lightly bitter, and the flavour is bitter tap water. Overall a diappointing beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2010
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Royal George Cottingham. A copper coloured beer. Blighted by diacetyl. Some earthiness and tea. There is a little fruitiness but otherwise really quite poor.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Quite a nice buttery malt aroma. Taste is best described as sour butter. Mid bitter finish. Better than it sounds.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2008
The usual from Phoenix/Oak. Lovely golden colour. Although malt features in the aroma it’s predominately flowery/hoppy; so much so it may even be dry-hopped. Plenty of hops in the flavour with a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Shame it’s not available more often.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Pale amber pour topped by a lasting off-white head. Fresh grainy and herbal nose combining hops and malts in a rather bright fashion. Dry flowery hops take more place in mouth, but again, a pretty grainy, hay-like almost, nutty maltiness midway between pale and dark takes a lot of room as well. Perhaps a bit clashing, but not a bad ale.
