UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Cask in Turner’s Mill, Redcar. Golden with a white head. Faily sharp citrus flavour over a mild syrup base. A pretty generic golden ale.

Bona cervesa, bastant equilibrada i gustosa. Buena cerveza, bastante equilibrada y sabrosa.

Hand-pulled half-pint at The Stafford Cricket and Hockey Club on 28th June 2014. Clear, light golden pour with a full white crown. Mildly maltier aroma than hop notes. The taste is also leaning slightly towards light malts with a mini citrus hop presence towards the finish. Medium bodied and easy to drink.

Lovely aroma to this beer. Great depth of flavour and a value for money beer all round. Will buy again.

An easy drinking session beer. Not overly hoppy. Often on special offer in Morrisons!

Cask at The Railway, Tulse Hill. Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head. Malty, doughy aroma, a hint of lemon. Medium body, mild carbonation. Cereal, white bread toast, a hint of marmalade, lemon with a mild bitterness. Not offensive, but pretty mediocre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear pale blond appearance. This is a light and refreshing bitter with a touch of citrus. Not very flavoursome.

Light golden colour with creamy head, sweet malt/fruit aroma with taste to follow. A fairly sweet beer overall but with some nice hop flavour and good body for a fairly light ale. Another ale that might appeal to lager fans. Delicious and easy drinking.

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 the george ossett. Clear light amber colour. Good frothy white head and lacing. Slight citrus sweet malt nose. Simlsr taste. Great body and smooth feel very good.
