Pint pulled at The Spencers Arms in Putney (London), a clear straw yellow with a frothy head. A spicy grass hop aroma with citrus undertones. Citrus notes and apple in the flavour, with a tartness and bitterness in the mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury.
Pale gold colour with bubbly white head. Another move at converting the lagerboy crowd, but this one is much better than most. Heaps of citric flavours going on, I agree with lemon and grapefruit with a subtle but filling malt. Hoppy bitterness towards the end, this is a good satsfying beer which may miss its target audience. Good beer.

Very nice, probably the best Cask beer in the time I have beern in The U.K., sweet, but sour and strange atthe same time. Like if it had wheat, I bet it does.

Cask handpull at Bridge House, Southwark. Gold colour, thin white head. Farty green apple yeasty aroma, thin in mouth with some apple fruit and lemon citrus and some hop on end. Lacks depth and that aroma....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color. Light aroma, disappears quickly. Medium structure, strong herbal hop taste, hop resins. The bitterness develops more at the end, hoppy, peculiar. Refreshing and good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned from Mill Inn Aldeburgh (15/08/05). Drunk during the Aldeburgh carnival whilst wandering around the town- a pleasant setting which the beer didnt detract from (or add to) in any way. Over yeasty/fruity. Grassy hops and only a hint of citrus. Drinkable refreshing blond.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Fairly sweet aroma. Not as hoppy as I expected from the description of the US hops used. Grassy hop flavour, slightly sweet malts. A little thin, but not a bad session beer.
