Cask handpull, Turf Tavern, Oxford, RB Pub crawl 08. Pale gold with lasting white head. Typical citrus grapefruit. Very good condition. Better than average gold/blond ale and really my kinda beer.

FatPhil (15964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Turf Tavern, Oxford) Yellow, no head. Sweet hoppy aroma, citrus - orange, and lemon aplenty - and a little corriander. Taste to match - very fresh and sharp bitter taste, but very balanced.

imdownthepub (14467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Easy lemony, citrusy pale ale. Bright grapefruit type flavour with a bittersweet finish. Nice easy drinking without getting too exciting. Reasonable beer.

Cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford, England.
Clear pale golden colour with almost no head. Lots of fruit in summery aroma. Especially lemon, grapefruit and orange. Mild fruity hops, fruit tea and orange in citrusy flavour. Very summery I have to admit.

Cask conditioned at Turf Tavern, Oxford on the Ratebeerian day around Oxford 09-02-08 Poured light-mid golden with slim white head, sweet flurry comes through first of all, quite fresh tasting but the bitterness clings along with some honey, nice good looking clear beer with hoppy nose.

Cask at the Turf in 2008. Blonde. Rounded, fruity aroma with good hops. Nice hoppy bitterness, with fruit, bubble gum, citrus and grapefruit. Lots of hops. Clean and well-balanced, tho a very light body.
