2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask @The New Oxford, Salford.
Clear golden body. Fresh malt to the nose. Tastes of carrot, with a hint of orange. Not what I would call a good IPA, but still...It was good with dinner and the company and the day was good. (5.Jul.2012)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark golden colour with a thick white head. A citrusy aroma of pine, lemon, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with decent bitterness. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand-pulled cask ale, half pint at New Oxford in Salford. Amber coloured body with a slight haze. Fading white head, blanketing the glass. Aroma of sweet hops with notes of berries. Spiced fruity hops in flavour added by hony sweetness and a nice bitter finish. Rather well bodied, but perhaps a bit restrained in flavour (Greater Manchester, 05.07.2012).
