madmitch76 (25817) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2010
14th April 2010. Clear amber beer, tiny head. Softish sry palate. Nicely balanced. Fruity start with sweetish pineapple and orange and even a little melon Dry even malt underpins and then some hop bitterness kicks in fairly strong in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste.

3.2
DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 13/04/2010
Fruity aroma. Golden coloured fruity and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a bitter and slightly peppery malt finish.

3.4
imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. One of the better festival beers, some hop notes, deeper malty body with a freshness belying its age. Moderate fruity notes. A decent drinker.

3.6
DanielBrown (4549) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Hand pulled at the Billiard Hall, West Bromwich. Tried side by side with Amber Rambler, which it comfortably outflanked. Good balanced hops, with lemon and watery sweetness to equalise. Very refreshing and drinkable and compared to the Amber Rambler it seemed much fresher and more satisfying.

3.4
DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
The Baron, Hinckley. Not chestnut but still honey-gold under a tight, nitro-like collar. Lovely lemon and orange hop juiciness upfront receding into crackerbread and dry roasted malts. Hints of softer, more exotic fruit, good well judged clout of departing bitterness, slight earthiness. Surprising flavours wrung out of First Gold and Styrian. Not much aroma leaking out; woodsy spice, lemongrass. Fresh and excellent.

2.9
bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Village (JDW) Rayners Lane. Amber/ brown with a healthy off white head. Malty with a little fruit, limited hops but a slightly sickly finish. Unimaginative.

3.1
downender (8937) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Greyhound, Bridport 19/04/10. Deep gold in colour with a slight white head. Citrus hops with some sweetish malts and moderately bitter finish. Ok.
