4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I would compare this beer to Fuller's discovery. I light but full flavoured blonde beauty. Really easy to drink and incredibly addictive.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint, The Moon on the Square, Basildon (JDW).
Citrus, citrus, citrus! Great twangy, zesty, juicy gobs of grapefruit and mandarin. Golden shining tightheaded refreshingly tart and with all the bitterness you might wish. Enough hops but to be super critical, maybe a little more malt to meet the citrus might have been nice. Loved this stuff, loved it, really quaff-able with a clean finish and a more-ish flavour. Had four of these to finish the night!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
August Bank Holiday 2006, Sole Bay Inn, across the green from the brewery. Served in the new Adnams, tall pint glass (don’t like them).
Paler than the normal bitter, but a lot darker than Regatta, a kind of light brown, with a rusty blonde thrown in. It looks good.
Aroma of malt and fruits, but the table next to me have fish and chips delivered (good but expensive), so unable to assertain which fruits were coming to the fore!
Good bitter taste and after taste, better than some 4.3% I could mention. Not heavy to the mouth, but there is body to it, I drank it in large gulps, I would have had another, but I was on a mission, so couldn’t.
Reading a few of the other reviews, it would appear some were disappointed, that is a shame, because drinking it in Southwold is a joy. I just hope the unimpressed get another chance to try it, and it is more true to its normal self.

Cask. Bright golden colour, big-bubbled head. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavour is also very hop aromatic. Nice bitterness. Flowery aftertaste. Very nice ale.

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.

Colour is dark hazy hazelnut brown. Nose is nice caramel malt with a bit of fruit. Head is soft white creamy and smooth. Taste is very well balanced bitter. Good caramel malt, fruit hops and creamy texture. Very smooth and very well balanced session bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the Bucks Head in Camden, London. Golden yellow with a dense white head. Grapefruit and cinder toffee in the aroma, and the grapefruit is the predominant flavour. Soft carbonation, and creamy mouth feel. A great refresher after trolling round Camden Market. I considered adding the pub to places, but it only had three fairly common real ales. However judging by this, they keep a good pint, and the sandwiches were nice too. Pity about the barmaid with the memory of a goldfish though.

Much more impressed with this than the bottled version. This beer didnt agree with pasteurisation. Yellow blonde. Uplifting floral hop aroma and flavours with lightly spiced caramel.
