Zer0 (1227) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2013
Cask, somewhere in the City of London. Pours clear golden with not much of a head. Aroma is floral and grassy. Quite dry, medium bitter and not sweet at all. Medium body and no carbonation.

HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Old Bell. Slightly hazy amber with a small mottled white/off-white head. I like that aroma - sharply floral but pungent and not sweet (yay!) - some alcohol, a little estery. Taste follows - a little acetone sharpness but mostly pungent floral/grassy bitterness, very light alcohol. Light body, slick, mildly carbonated, fairly quick-finishing with a slightly dry and catty linger. Pretty nice session beer after all those bitters.

ladnewton (2075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Cask at CBC, London on 27th July 2013. Gold with thin white part-lacing film. Grassy aroma with sweetish biscuit malt. Richly malty in-mouth with grassy and citric hops. Finish balances out on the sweet side with berry fruits. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body. Rather pleasant.

On cask Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Gold with a white head. Lemony hop, quite mildly flavoured and refreshing as a session ale. Sweet malty undertones. Smooth texture. Pleasant, but one was enough.

Magpie. Clear amber beer, little white head. Smooth palate. Sweetish pine and sublte sherbet candy fruits. The malt is light and dry and has a touch of rawness about it. Floral dry finish. A bit different!

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This Blond Bitter’s citrusy hops and honeyed malts dwell in a welcoming, velvety body, perfect for eventful quenching.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy slice of foam covers the clear honeyed gold.
-Light hop resins efficiently seal the finish.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The craftsmanship is obvious in this one, even though the final result itself is not too memorable.

On cask at The Mitre, Cambridge.

stravale (3150) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 30, 2013
Cask @ Haymarket, Edinburgh [280613]
Golden amber, clear, dense thin white head. some lacing
Aroma of mellow citrus grapefruit, soft sweet fruity citrus malts, good aroma
Taste of mellow citrus, grapefruit, background of softlight fruity caramel malts, some lemon, slight floral notes, really nice delicate flavours
Palate - Medium thin body, bit oily, tangy soft bitter with a soft light sweet malt, good well balanced palate. Finish as main flavour, fruity light caramel, some lemon
Overall - Well made and balanced refreshing bitter

allmyvinyl (11189) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2013
Cask at The Haymarket, Edinburgh. Pours a golden yellow with a good, tight white head, good lacing. Good hop aroma, considering it’s cask. Good bitter taste, some malt sweetness. Creamy, with flat carbonation. Good bitter finish. An OK hoppy bitter.

mr_h (6069) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear golden, creamy off-white head, meadow hop aroma, excellent lacing, toffee malt, creamy texture, nicely balanced, understated but decent hop finish
