Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Cask at St. George’s Tavern, Nicholson’s - London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a foamy white head. Crisp, biscuity malts in the nose, some straw, lemon pith. Light sweet flavor with bitter grain husk, damp hay, lemon rind, biscuits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. OK finish, more wet hay, grain, pale bread, crackers. So so overall.

2.8
imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Chequers (Nicholson’s), Oxford. Gold with slight white head. This beer had a slightly sicky tartness to it, bitter, peachy with a citric edge. Rather one dimensional as the body offered little. A bit of a struggle.

2.9
KPC (8) - Solihull, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015 does not count
Cask at Old Contemptibles Birmingham 6/05/15. Slightly hazy golden beer, medium bodied with a citrusy, lemon, slightly sweet bitterness. Pleasant enough.

From cask at The Bank, Manchester, with KL and AKH 07.05.15. Golden. Dense and persistent beige head and lacing. Aroma of citrus, lemon biscuits and lime. Perfect condition. Very quaffable.

ManVsBeer (10973) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Cask @ Old Wellington, Manchester. Nicholson’s Beer Festival. Clear gold with no head. Has a sticky sweet texture and taste with a berry fruitiness, but a light one so pleasant enough in the palate.

3.4
The_Osprey (9361) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at Railway Tavern, Richmond. Pale orange, still, hazy, compact foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is light - sweet and biscuity. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet caramel malts, salted caramel, Foxes cream biscuits, some astringent lime peel. Up front this is a rock solid cask ale, but I found it a bit drying and tiring over time. Still, pretty good.

3.3

Cask, fainlty hazy gold with a thick lasting fine foam, bread and tropical fruit aromas reminiscent of a Hopfenweisse, Fairly full bodied with a bitter finish.
