Cask (Radegund, Cambridge) (6:3:6:4-:13-=3.2--)
Tons of berries - even strawberry - pale malts too. Pale, very little head. Wet sheep bitterness - so wooly. Finish is very dry and resiny, husky and acidic. Light malts are pleasant. Drinkability good. Palate so soft. Surprisingly decent as it seemed to have some tiredness and flaws.

imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Asda, Milton Keynes as Foxfield Finest Regional Blonde. Clear gold with white head, a very careful pour required. Mine was quite dry and citrusy, maybe a touch too sharp and tinny, but much more refined than it’s sister beer. Reasonable and tasty.

Rune (12827) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2017
By gravicask at Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival, shared with Cunningham. Bright yellow-gold body. Modest aroma of ripe lemony hops. Peaches and mid-sweet citrus to the taste buds followed by a fresh fruity ending. A bit diluted in the mouth. Accepted (rating no.11800) (17.02.2017).

Bottle from Asda, Wheatley, Oxon 27-07-09 This version was Foxfield Finest Regional Blonde Ale 4.3% Pours gold with white head its full of sediment.

Clear golen color with a small layer on top. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium light body and a soft carbonation level. Ok balanced sweetness versus bitterness. Malty, mild fruity and herbal flavor. Typical dull blond with a low carbonation level.

Bottle (bottle conditioned), May 2008. Hazy blonde. Rather fizzy. Clean, dry mouthfeel. Clean. Some dry, toasty malt. Slightly earthy hops. Drinkable enough but not a particularly vibrant Golden Ale.

berkshirejohn (6505) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2009
50cl bottle from Asda, Earley, Berkshire. Straw with a fast fading white head; moderate carbonation; slightly musty lemon aroma; creamy texture with some citrus and light caramel malts; well-balanced gentle bitter finish. A rather elegant and refined beer, and excellent value for money.
