imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Hazy amber with slight head. Quite a sweet, smooth malty beer then developing a fruity hop. All a little understated but ok.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Cask, gravity dispensed, at the 13th Egham Beer Festival. Rather hazy amber colour with a ring of white head; light citrus flavour with a fresh, grassy bitterness. Rather inconsequential.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Pours deep amber with a tiny white head. The nose is spicy, earthy hops, some dirt, plenty of fruity malts. Strawberry, light tobacco and toffee. The taste is less agressive than the aroma. There’s hints of slightly buttery toffee, smooth banana strawberry smoothie and toasted coconut. More earthy grass, some resin. Smooth, drinkable. Overall, not my favorite flavor profile. Perhaps not on peak form.
