Cask in Manchester. Slightly hazy yellow color, fine white head. Light straw aroma. Taste is earthy lemon.

One of my favourite session ales. Had 3 pints at the Star pub in Willerby on cask. Lovely straw coloured golden ale with a long lasting head very easy to drink & very enjoyable

golden ale, very bland, very light, nothing special , some malt comes through but this needs to be a lot stronger

The_Osprey (7984) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond as ’Thwaites Wainwright’. Clear yellow, still, small scummy off-white head. Aroma is chewed bread, some astringent pithy citrus. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet malt sugars, light passionfruit and pomegranate. Pretty solid overall. Better than expected.

Yellow pint that starts hazy but slowly settles. Thin white head. Very light fruit aroma, slight lemony taste. Bit bland and due to that could go being a bit crisper but it’s light, refreshing and pretty drinkable.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.40/pint. Good looking straw-coloured beer with a smooth, white head. There’s light citrus and passion fruit in the aroma as well as citrus and malty sweetness to the taste. It’s a one-dimensional beer but does what it does very well.

Cask at old mill baggington. Poured light gold white head. Straw malt nose light floral malt notes but pretty bland.

prawlie (1591) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
On draft at the Tennants Arms in the Yorkshire Dales. Floral, dry hop flavours, and overall tasty. Clear golden appearance. I thought this was pretty decent, good for a session.

Drinkable if bland ale quickly dissapearing head quite watery some malt and pine pretty weak stuff but non offensive.

Just average I’m afraid. Aroma nothing to speak of. Appearance cloudy golden. Taste forgettable. Bland on palate. Overall below average. Dissapointing.
