Sampled this bitter in the Three Judges, Glasgow in February 2004. CXask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper red in colour with a thin loose white head. Slight malt in the aroma with a juicy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt complexes giving a digestive malt flavour along with a note of redcurrant fruit. Dry hop in the aftertaste giving a faint metallic tang. Finish is malty with dry vinous notes in the mouth. A good session ale. cgarvieuk (24800) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2011

Cask, South Causey Inn, Stanley, Co Durham. Golden colour with a minimal head. Fragrant, slightly fruity aroma.
Flavour malty and slightly sweet, with vague bitterness in the finish. Hugely average and dull like the loud conversation being played out at the bar while I was supping this. imdownthepub (14776) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’07. Orange gold with white head, hazed. Beer with a big dose of caramel in the flavour and a sweetish toffee note with a chalky powdery feeling. Some malty graininess and a little late bitterness, but certainly not a session bitter of class. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Squashtness is at a minimal here, but he must have been on glue here anyway as its one of the palest beers iv ever had. Excellent condition crystal clear. No aroma at all. Taste is honey with pale malts, lightly bittering pale malts. Easily drinkable but somewhat nothing as a beer.

[Cask at The Three Judges] Clear and golden with a minimal head. Aroma of dried apricot, slightly floral. Body is on the thin side, lightly sweet with a dry finish. I agree with Nekronos here, this one is not squashy at all. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2006
Cask conditioned@ Guide Dog, Soton. Light copper. Some spicy hop and fruit aromas. Lightly sweet with a fruity vinous acidity which although pleasant in darker beers seems slightly misplaced here. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Star Inn, Huddersfield 11/03/2006
Golden coloured with some fruit and wheat flavours. Dry on the palate in the finish. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 6, 2006
Very interesting, sweet in some way and not squashy at all. The colour is a little dark. But it is still a bitter. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2004
Although the brewery describes this as a session bitter, the colour is pale yellow and the aroma betrays a very obvious Cascade hop presence, so it is really more like a golden summer ale. Slightly cloudy. Lemon & citrus notes in the aroma as well as aromatic floral elements. However, the palate was very grainy and dull, with murky flavours and just the merest hint of peach in the background. Dull finish. No zing at all. Not in peak condition. Cask (gravity), Cambridge Beer Festival.
