Cask conditioned gravity dispense Olde England Northampton 20/09/13. A golden beer with a bubbly white head. A zesty citrussy hoppy aroma. A bit grassy and overclean in the mouth. Late bitterness. Ordinary really.

tombyars (1666) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this ale in Esquires, Glasgow (JDW) in August 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin open white head. Short hoppy aroma with a tang of grapefruit zest. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts gives a juicy mouthwatering whack of grapefruit and zesty lemon peel which is quite intense. Resiny hop flowers gives a really dry aftertaste and elderflowers comes through in the increasingly dry, tart finish. An ok session ale but this is rather too bitter for me.

Oakes (16961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2010
@ Royal Oak, Twerton. Golden colour with a slight haze. Fresh, leafy hop nose. Pithy, slightly sticky hop character. Long, dry and very appetizing.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Cask, 3rd Hinckley BF. Hopped up and pale to the point I had to go back and get another half, just to make sure it hadnt been crossed with the Oakham (Citra). Straw with a white rim and lace specks. Grapefruit and pollen aroma- 8. Huge grapefruit punch, background earthy malt, peanut husk, Rich Tea hints. Wow. Lean, punchy, basic. Some really resinous, green, well-wrung citrus here. Pale/dark horse of the festival, no pun intended.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ Royal Oak Twerton. Medium gold, frothy head and lacing. Fairly bright hoppy aroma is pleasant, although some pedio does emerge by pints end. Smooth and soft. Really great bitterness here. An excellent hoppy mild I could drink a lot of.

Fin (10300) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Bell Beer Festival, Adderbury, Nr Banbury, Oxon, 04.09.10 I am not 100% certain of the colour as I had this poured straight into my tankard, though I think it is looking a bit golden, there is a white head atop. Crisp citrus showing from the off. There are big grapefruit flavours, its a crisp, refreshing beer, with a constant bitterness running through and loads of grapefruit, tasty stuff and one of, if not my favourite beer of the day.

[email protected] Southampton Arms. Golden collour, small white head. Aroma is bready, malty, mild wooden, fruity and herbal notes as well, Flavour is quite similar. Hayish and quite grassy finish.

ladnewton (1911) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 26 July 2010. Gold body with slight haze, and a thin lacing off-white head. Grass hop kick and citric back-taste of lemon, then grapefruit. A fine finish results from grapefruit and herbiness of the hop, and the mouthfeel texture is zingy. A very pleasant enjoyable pint.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a white head. Citric hop aroma. Rather a thick, heavy, brutish citric taste and sharp bitter finish. Im getting fed up with this sort of hoppy golden ale to be honest.

wheresthepath (2258) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2009
[Cask at the Back of Beyond] Murky gold with a slight white head. Farmyard/straw aroma. Tastes harshly bitter at first, but this mellows to reveal a farmyard/straw taste with grapefruit bitterness coming through at the end. Its OK, but I was hoping for something better from my first beer in over 2 weeks (due to flu).
