bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Cask at Churchills, Ramsgate: Not impressed with this beer. Overly sweet and very cloying, also a strange harshness to it. Ive tried it a couple of times now and I just dont like it.

Cask @ The Wenlock Arms, London.
Pours dark golden with a nice, small, creamy white head. Aroma is soft, some vanilla and flowery hops - some roses, even. Quite lively mouthfeel for a cask ale - maksing it rather fresh. Lovely bitter flavour, lots of fruity and flowery hops. Wonderful dryness. Gimme more!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark golden with a low white foam. Vague notes of citric notes in the aroma with notes of melon. Fruity but a tad thin flavour of caramel, yellow apples and currant-leaves. Medium bitter finish of grapefruit. Not an IPA, I would put it in the english golden ale category
