fonefan (49343) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2007
Cask (handpump) @ Market Porter, SE1, London. Clear light to medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, virtually none, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Very nice and refreshing. Body is medium to light, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

From cask at Bow bar. Pours clear and somewhat pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light fruity hops. Starts sweet flavoured and descending into a nice fruity note. Vague malty note. Holds a more spiced flavour from the hops towards the finish. Ends medium dry yet also light fruity.

Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, herbal and grassy with mild grains. Flavour is very similar in a quite dusty way. Also rather flat as for carbonation. Failed second fermentation in the bottle?

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden. Appley grassy nose. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and light body. Lightly soapy with notes of vanilla and orange. Fairly low bitterness. A very quaffable easy going ale with an unfortunate touch of apples.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2011
Cask at the Old Fountain. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Sweet nose, honey malts, light straw. Nice flavor, not too intense, some easy bitterness, hay and sweet, juicy citrus, some sugary malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, faint grass and straw, nice and light toasted bread and some residual sugars. Very pleasant.

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London</i>
Hazy blond color. Hazy deep blond color. It has a light hoppy aroma, with a hint of elderflowers. Light malt aroma, very light residual sweetness, some toffee, lightly fruity hopping, good bitterness. Refreshing Golden Ale.

Served on Cask at the Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport - Jan ’12. Pours to a very clear golden blonde colour, you can literally see right through it! Small white head that thins slightly during drinking. Defnitely a citrus nose to this beer and a light sweetish malt aroma also. On the palate this beer also gives off a citrus flavour and slightly grassy with a very subtle hop taste and finishes slightly bitter Quite a thin beer in the mouthfeel but fairly crisp and refreshing none the less.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2007
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Pale gold, thin white head. Nettly hoppy aroma. Some softness in mouth. Nettley hop finish. Bit like a gooseberry, new world Sauvignon Blanc. I like it. A bit spikey, and I really like it.
