imdownthepub (14353) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Cask conditioned at The Drillmans Arms, Stratton, Gloucs. Burnished gold with white head. This has quite a caramelised character to it, boiled cereal notes, some bitterness, some fruitiness. Just okay.

madmitch76 (24303) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
April 2009
Clear gold beer. Soft and semi dry palate. Very mild everything! A little bit of malt and a touch of pineapple and grapefruit hop. Apologetic beer but drinkable. Too dry!

leaparsons (10467) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Hazy gold with a small white head. Aromas are biscuit malts with grain and peppery hops. A bit rough. Flavours are dry biscuit with hints of toffee. Bitter green, dry finish with grapefruit pith. Not great.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 13/4/08. Pale gold with a decent, frothy white head. Aroma of hay with some floral hops. Flavour started sweet before some citrus hops and a short bitter finish. OK.

harrisoni (18232) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Cask handpull at Willow Walk, JDW, Victoria. Decent hoppy finish, good condition, good wideish mouthfeel on this light English bitter. Excellent lacing. Very light bitter, but lemon citrus is good.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at JDW. Citric hops and a bit of bacon fat in the aroma. Odd lemonade lolly flavour. Kinda like it, just its all too mellow.
