Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 8 April 2013. Poured a clear, bright amber, with a dense off-white head. Aroma was slightly dulled; some citrus, copper and caramel. Flavours have more assertive hop character, with grapefruit, marmalade and biscuity malt. Finish was bitter resin, dry grain and soda bread.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Amber-red with a beige head and a moderate fizz - really quite fizzy for a cask beer. Ooh, unusual aroma, can’t quite place it. On tasting it there’s some chilli, a deep toffee malt background, then definite pine, orange and grapefruit. It draws you in - it’s very more-ish. A big like from me on this one, I do enjoy Adnams’ efforts as these festivals. Lengthy grapefruit finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in April 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear russet in colour withn a thin light buff head. Orange zest in the citrusy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive tea biscuit base with strong zesty fruit notes of tart grapefruit pith. Hint of rye grain in the mouth. Strong citrus flavour to the bitter astringent hop resins evident in the mouth. Finish is slightly malty with orange peel notes present. An ok amber ale but lacking in complexity.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 The Felix, Nuneaton, 24/04/13. Eponymous with a tight drum of head draping the glass. Soft chocolate, chestnut, possibly coriandered aroma. A decent red jelly, coriander, Hovis biscuit mixture of flavours more in the Belgian camp than US. Reminds me of those slightly flowery, biscuity Belgian impersonations of an English ale. Good fresh malty finish; nut husk and digestive afters. Good.
