McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 17, 2012
Coherent light sparkling golden colour. Little to no white head. Noses lightly sweet malty and hints of skunkyness. Some notes of floral basement aromas. Light fizzy on tip of the tongue. Medium body with a slick texture. pretty well balanced. The finish is a bit abrupt at first but has some momentum to it eventually. Well done!

Fin (7035) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2006
Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival Fri 21-04-06. This for me was one of the best beers that I had a Banbury during the evening. An exceptionally good light golden coloured beer that reveals a lovely aroma slightly citrusy and a touch malty. This has a really great balance of bitterness and sweetness and is also both crisp and refreshing a superb beer.

[Cask at GBBF 2005] An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and malty - and so is the flavor though combined with a floral note - is it Cascade? The mouthfeel is slightly sticky. All in all a nice beer.
