Cask in the Thomas Sheraton, Stockton. A blonde ale with a white head. Nothing too much to report really. Some caramel and hay notes, but a little short of flavour, although it is pleasantly creamy in the mouth, refreshing and goes down easy.

Bottle from Booths. Pours a clear pale gold, nice bubbly white head. Light aromas of straw and herbal hops. Taste is light sweet, very light bitter at the start, but this builds as you get down the glad. Easy drinking and refreshing, but with a slight astringent finish.

Cask at the Metropolitan (Wetherspoons), Baker Street, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white fluffy head on top. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, malty. A refreshing and highly drinkable golden ale.

Cask a Willow Walk 'spoons, Victoria. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma has a hint of orange and caramel. Medium body, mild carbonation. There's lemon and a hint of marmalade alongside a solid maltiness. Tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Watford jdw. Pale golden coloured pour with a lasting white head and decent lace. Aroma is iron, wet grassy hop and some caramel. Flavour is pale English malt with some caramel. Fruity yeast esters with hints of belgian blonde. Finish is sweet sweet honey and mineral. Medium light palate and average carbonation light slick. Not sure I should have had a pint of this.

BlackHaddock (6978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint in my local Wetherspoons on 13th Jan 2014. As the name suggests, this is a blonde coloured beer: the head being white, full and staying. Slight citrus aroma, very little malt in the nose, all hop. The taste was also hop leading with the malts well below the surface: the beer was refreshing, crisp and very easy to drink. One of the better citrus flavoured light beers currently about in the UK.

Nice would definitely drink again. Good strength it seems as well. One of the best on my list so far.

Bottle at home. Light lager-like appearance and taste. But a good lager taste, light and crisp, although fairly insubstantial (probably means less sugar compared to standard lagers) Gives way to a lovely subtle hoppy finish that endures. You'll feel like you want to glug it, but it's better not to.
