Leighton (20170) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask at CBC Clerks - London. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Crispy biscuit in the nose, some grass, straw. Light sweet flavour with more crispy pale malts, light bitter grain and hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Findings with nips of lemon peel, hay, more biscuity sweetness. Nice one.

jjsint (2768) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Criterion, Leicester. Mid- to dark gold, clear with a decent tight white head. Slight orchard fruit aroma combined with some grain and wiid shavings. Lovely full taste with sweet apricot at the fore. Full body for a beer of this strength and you can really savour the natural carbonation. Not one of Thornbridges absolute best but solid all the same.

ManVsBeer (9508) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a thin creamy head. Hopped with a high fruity sweetness - and too sugary to comfortably enjoy.

stravale (2955) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask @ The Hallamshire House, Sheffield [210314] [From memory as notes lost]
Has soft citrus tropical notes and similar flavours. Fairly hoppy, with soft sweet fruity malts, but not as hoppy as Kipling. Was quite decent as I recall...remember scoring it 3.4

minutemat (5050) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Cask @ The Dolphin, Shrewsbury. Pretty uninspiring and quite mild for an American pale. Citrus is there, nice cool & smooth with some lemon and a touch of tangerine but it just lacks some bite.
