Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, - FEB 5, 2013
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a moderate, frothy white head. Dried pale malts in the nose, some straw and lemon rind. Light sweet flavor, some pleasant dried citrus notes, lemon and tangerine, some biscuity pale malts. Light in body with fine carbonation. Well conditioned. Clean, lightly bitter finish, further biscuity pale malts, dry lemon. A very pleasant, easy-drinking golden. Good work.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Gold with white head. Sweet, grainy maltiness from the start, there is a doughy element to the flavour, yeasty and a touch earthy. Fairly average fare.

(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 9 May 2015) Pale amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of apricots, orange peel and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, biscuits and a balanced floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and refreshing. Quite nice.

olsvammel (6440) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2015
On tap at Akkurat. Bready and malty smell. Similar taste with a light flowery and toasty aroma. Also has a light sour aroma. Actuallly its a noticeable sourness and the beer feels flat in a bad way. Maybe its been to long on the tap?

Very hoppy fruity aroma. Very slightly cloudy and yellow appearance. Quite soft but with strong bitter undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gary (1907) - Brentford ,West London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Cask @ Magpie. Brentford. Golden rake. Golden ,dub. Floral hop nose. There is some decent hop texture aromatic suggestions of earthy lime grapefruit. pine wood. Dusty. A backbase of sweet malt caramel. This is ok but the style usually bores my ass. Turn the hop volume up!!!

Cask handpull at the ring bar Southwark. Nice clear pale golden coloured pour with a lasting light white head. Aroma us straw wet grass, earthy and yeast esters. Flavour is light base malts with classic English hop, slight grass, chalky water profile and assertive bitterness. Clean ferment. Palate is dry with moderate carbonation and good bright condition. Nice lingering zing of citrus. Tasty drop.
