June - JDW, Rochester. Flowery citric blonde - very hoppy. Sweet elderflower and honey, spiked with a raspy bitterness. Perhaps a little too hoppy for my personal taste.
Cask at The Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Feintly floral/citrus aroma. Bright gold, no head, flat. Appearance reminds me of cider - also got a bit of a cider impression from initial taster. Medium bitter, sour. Very light bodied and as flat as its appearance. Dry finish. Citrus, lemon grass. It’S refreshig enough but a bit boring. And to go with the theme again, it’s got an Apfelwein thing going on, must be the sourness. BeerViking (5133) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Cask at the Plough & Harrow JDW. Lovely clear amber with a lacing head and a grainy lemony nose, but with a hint of acetic. Body is nutty and wheaty-spicy, but again slightly acidic. A decent beer but not quite right, I reckon. The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Weltons Sun Oak Clog’. Pale amber orange, clear and still, foamy beige head. Aroma is wheaty, rusk biscuit, Jacobs crackers, touch cheesy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has more Jacobs crackers, sugary malt, touches of dried apple, slightly buttery with a thin finish. A bit thin and buttery.

John Oldcastle, London. Yellowish golden colour, small creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, wooden, caramelly and mild lemony notes as well. Flavour is fruity, floral, cheesy and mild bitterness. Balanced and quite pleasant.
Cask (handpump) at the Hobgoblin, Reading, 25 June 2009. Something to do with a Sussex-based clog dancing troupe. I thought clod dancing was from up north. Whatever. Fairly pale colour. Crisp and lemony. Refreshing with good bitterness. Not the most complex but does what it does rather well.
