I'm not much on coriander so it will reflect on this review. Cloudy cream head pour. Citrus and coriander. N oddly bitter saison buying liked the originality. Didn't taste any fruit more floral outlay. Not bad but not that great either. Will recommend to my coriander buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bomber pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, yeast and lemons. Taste is malts, bread and a bit of citrus hops.

Very pleasant, drinkable, goes down easy. Maybe that's just because of my state of mind at the moment...

Leighton (10682) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Cask at the Liberty Bounds, JDW - London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a creamy head. The aroma holds doughy white bread, light yeast and hints of lemon peel. Light to medium sweet flavor with Belgian yeast, doughy white bread, faint spices, citrus rind bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more doughy malts and moderate bitter citrus rind. Good effort all around.

Beese (1625) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 26 November 2013. Poured a light amber colour with a light haze and a tight, white head. Aroma of soft fruit, Belgian yeast, cereal and banana essence. Citrus hop on the initial flavour with notes of candy sugar and cereals. Finish was a bitter hop bite, balanced with brown sugar, orange peal and passion fruit. Unusually tasty beer to find in JDW.

BeerViking (2424) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Cask at the Michael Balcon JDW, golden and very lively, with a big tight white head. Aromas of lemon, banana, freshly turned earth and a little spice. Full bodied for a golden ale, with warming alcohol over a spicy, and juicy-dry fruity body. Delicious, and a definite credit to Adnams.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Slightly hazy gold with a lively white head, in the peak of condition. I enjoyed 3 pints of this with a curry and returned the following evening (having enjoyed it so much) to neck a few more. It’s one of those beers that seem to improve, the more of it you drink and I feel lucky to have caught it in such excellent form on an evening when I felt no pressure to tick other beers on offer. The Belgium yeast and US hops work brilliantly together and the strength is evident, but not in the least cloying. A great example of why not to rate on small measures and a compromised palate. Another great beer brewed (without evident economies imposed by the plant owners) at Adnams.

allmyvinyl (3091) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Cask at The White Lady. Pours clear golden yellow with a good white head, nice lacing. Aromas are subtle, but white pepper and lemon in there. Taste has a biscuit malt note, more spice. Structure is very interesting, cream, spice, long finish. one of the best Adnams beers I’ve had, and one of the best at my local JDW for sure.

davidtjm (320) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2013
Cask at local wetherspoons. Gold pour with a medium head, sweet aroma, with a malty taste balanced by hops, which dominates the aftertaste. Quite a nice beer.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Cask, half. Gold, extremely tight white head (almost nitro). Great lace. Aroma is weird - all sorts of yeast notes, and I’m underexperienced in this area. Perfumey, but delicate, sort of lemons. Quite sharp, pepper dry taste. Perfume lingers. Peculiar find in a superpub. Quite nice, but very strange.
