UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 Cask on a visit back to Preston. Could hardly seem to move for the stuff! Pale gold, good white head. Light floral/grassy hops, light caramel. Nice balance on the taste, good finish. Not bad.

(Cask): Clear gold with a small white head. Slightly weak aroma of grass, malt and citrus. Flavour is sweet fruits, grassy notes and a malt background. Fairly average but drinkable.

TimE (5808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2013
Golden color. Frothy white head, fairly indistinguishable from any other English bitter but decent enough.

Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Slight aroma of newly mown grass allied to a flavour of freshly baked bread. Gently hopped and slightly sweet with a short-medium finish. Refreshing.

Imaena (2319) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 7, 2013
Draught. This is another classic bitter that I was not terribly fond of. Too malty a sweet for my taste.

CasK @ Thomas Frost, Merseyside .. . hay and dried grass with a soft hoppiness, some light perfume too .. . light carbonation .. . touch sweet .. . a half pint was enough .. . . All women are beautiful. Well, except for the ugly ones.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Light gold, hazy, tight creamy white head; no aroma; weak, flowery hop taste; thin; light, dry bitterness; mediocre at best, quite possibly ruined by Poole Quay Wetherspoons inability to serve it in proper condition.
