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.
[Cask at Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival -17]

Rune (12803) - 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).

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.

Cask; JDW Spoons. Dropped bright. Golden with white lacing. Pretty standard golden ale. UK hops. Some bitterness but not very exciting. Drinks ok but boring.

StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A light, corn aroma, breakfast cereals and a hint of hop. Dry mouthfeel. A dry, cereal taste, cornflake, plus a hint of hop, with a light Limey citrus flavour. The finish is dry and cereal-like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Chapel Beer Festival. Clear gold beer, thick frothy head. Sherbet fruit nose. Palate is soft and semi dry. Lively taste - sherbet pineapple, grapefruit and subtle orange. Soft creamy biscuit malt alongside. Tasty!

imdownthepub (14556) - 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.

Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
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. There is more than a touch of sourness on the nose. Taste is tangy but actually more sour, this isn’t, great possibly infected, will possibly try again at some point A4 A2 F4 P2 Ov8
