Cask gravity at Old Fire House, Exeter. It pours clear amber with a bubbly beige head. The nose is fresh, piney, bitter - sweet, resin, brown bread, earth and stewed peach. The taste is bitter, pine, resin, light astringency, black tea, caramel, light herbal, earth, peach and pepper with a firm, dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty decent.

On tap at The Bottle Shop London. Cloudy gold lasting white head. almost like a Sauvignon blanc aroma. Grapefruit dank hops some caramel. Love the aroma. Then some grape nettle bitter sour bitter harshness. Quite a remarkable use of hops. Good though.

Bottle. Very cloudy orange coloured beer. Looks are not particularly enticing. Hoppy and fruity. Bittersweet and malty. Good carbonation. Very interesting.

Towey1989 (1448) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear deep golden colour with a foamy white head. Starburst sweet aroma of lemon, gooseberry, peach, passion fruit and some caramel. Taste is also fruity of gooseberry, peach, passion fruit, some lemon, slight apricot, subtle grapefruit, resin and a little caramel. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, fruity, lightly resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a sweet pale ale but so fruity and flavourful. Big NZ hops, light resin and subtle sweet caramel. Delicious.

Bottle from Warwick Real Ale. Not much of a looker, quite murky! Aroma is peach, tropical fruits, sweet malts, pine needles. Taste is a nice medley between citrus fruits, peach, pine, floral notes and the sweet malt background that the bottle stated. Finish is fairly long lasting but not too bitter. I like this.
