Cask at The Pint Shop in Cambridge, UK. What, is this town some ripoff of Massachusetts? Those crazy Brits, what's next, ripping off Birmingham, Alabama? Manchester, New Hampshire? York, Pennsylvania? Oh wait, all of those have happened. Copycats. Anyway, the beer... Clear golden with a small lacy white head. Aroma is nice, restrained citrus, lemon, grass, bread. Flavor is nice, mild, slight sweet and slight bitter. Pale malt and citrusy grassy hops. Lighter feel, somewhat crisp and drinkable. A good morning pint. Is being a ticker just a thinly veiled cover for my alcoholism? Maybe. Who cares, time for the next beer. Liver be damned.

Gravicask (Ale House, Chelmsford)
Very nice light floral and citrussy aroma. Pale gold. Light malty bready body. Thinnish palate. Gently perfumed finish. More emphasis on the aroma than anything else, which as always leads to a bit of a letdown. However, for a golden ale, it’s pretty darn solid.

CBC Clerkenwell. Cask. Clear paleish gold beer, small white head. Palate is light, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. Light malts, not that sweet. Bitter floralness. Modest citrus. Fluffy finish. It’s okay but frustrating. Thornbridge are better than bog standard golden ales.

Towey1989 (3270) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Cask at The Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, slight grain, lemon, a little grapefruit, a hint of lime and some floral hops. Taste of lemon, grapefruit, some bready malts, a little grain, subtle elderflower maybe and some grassy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, lemony, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A hoppy golden ale yeah but not refined enough, a little pissy at times and quite grainy. Ok.

3.1
Scopey (15747) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask at Thornbridge. It pours clear pale gold with a medium white head. The aroma is bready, white bread & butter, barnyard, floral and straw. The taste is big bitterness, straw, floral, white bread, grass, some astringency and earth with a very dry finish. Medium body and and soft carbonation. Pretty punchy and a touch harsh. Not exactly fruity like it says on the label. Fair.
