The Bridge End Inn, Ruabon, Denbighshire

Bear & Ragged StaffAcceptable14 Oct 2012 Golden beer. Citrus and malt flavours were too weak and watery, body was thin. In my opinion, there are far tastier session beers of this genre available.

The County Hotel, Ashford, Kent

IanExcellent01 Sep 2010 Stunning hop on aroma. Brilliant session beer you could and would want to drink all night.
IanExcellent01 Sep 2010 The cascades in the aroma are stunning. Lovely session golden beer.

The Archibald Simpson, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire

RayExcellent22 Jul 2010 Pale straw hoppy, floral ale. Well balanced with light sweet malt. Very satisfying hoppy finish. Almost there with the Dark Star original. Well worth 4*.

IanAcceptable06 Apr 2007 Again another beer I've had before which I was expecting to be as good, but wasn't. Nice hop though.

Nottingham Beer Festival 2005, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

AndrewExcellent21 Oct 2005 Very drinkable pale coloured bitter that tasted very similar to JHB
IanExcellent20 Oct 2005 Golden beer with white lasting head. Along the lines of Darkstar Hophead and JHB. Grapefruit and tangerine citrus, acidic in mouth with drying hoppy citric finish. Mmmmm
