Cask at the Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 21st November 2012. Pale gold with dissipating white head and initial lacing. Rich fruitiness in aroma and liquid, with grassy hop and citric tang on tonghe. Grapefruit and peach with touch of salt form a tangy finish. Light mouthfeel. Delicious.

imdownthepub (10981) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Market Porter, Borough, London. Gold with white head. This was a fresh, crisp, quite clean hoppy beer, maybe a little lagery, lemony perhaps, but certainly very decent on a warm summer evening stood out the front of the Market Porter. Lovely.

Cask@Derby Winter Beer Festival 2013. Bright golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is very dry with grassyness, and the flavour is also dry with hops and grassyness. Overall a nice dry golden beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
