JorgeLee (1945) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016. Golden colour bitter with a reasonably satisfying floral hop punch - probably at the upper end of scale for pre-craft beer bitter bitterness. A decent pint, quite smashable.

ianwelby (1247) - SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Hazy golden beer with a sort of mottled head of white and amber from the bottle. I assume this has arisen from sediment in the bottle or something. Faint grassy aroma. taste has the same quality, with some zesty citrus coming through from the hop. Other than a faint bitterness there isnt much flavour which lingers. Nice though.
