Cask at Cloisters. Slightly hazy orange pour, thin persistent white head. Slight orange peel, soft musty honey, lightest peppery citrus hop nose. Slight bread sweetness, just a light, slightly suspicious yeasty flavour followed by a soft peppery bittersweet linger. Not too bad.

jamesie1857 (1344) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
On Cask in Litton, Derbyshire - a decent looking pull, took time to clear, but golden with a lasting head. Slight citric note to this, a mellow taste of limes (?) and tropical citrus fruits, with an aroma to match. Good feel to it, and nice aftertaste.

Cask. Yellowish golden colour with a small head. Aroma is very citrusy with some bready and earthy notes as well. Flavour is citrusy, mildly dishwatery notes as well as some bready and mild herbal notes. Easy to drink, but nothing very special.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. A golden ale with a thin white head. Musty honey - meady caramel nose. A little thin with a definite mead like yeasty / honey flavour. Deceptively drinkable given the abv.
