Cask at GBBF08. Hazy copper colour. Small white head. The flavour has some fruit at first, mostly berries, raspberry. Like watered down fruit juice. Quite drinkable, with a watery finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden Orange, zingy tingly complex fruit aromas, mellow and sweet summer fruits with light malt tones. Just a touch too floral.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Creamy off white head with nice lace. Copper color with some strange sediment. Strange in that it doesn’t settle. Tastes like a decent brown ale with cough syrup. Hoping for more fruit flavor and dryness. Cheers!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plum, Soton. Slightly cloudy. Acidic blackcurrant and raspberry flavour dominate with hints of a slightly sweet maltiness underneath. Too sweet to be refreshing and an almost false feel to the fruit prevented a more relaxed enjoyment. It would suprise me if the pub manages to shift 9 gallons of this in good condition judging by the overwhelmingly negative comments other pub goers were making about this.

Cask@St Albans Beer Festival. Pretty refreshing stuff, but on the sweet side. Kiwi fruit, strawberry, blackurrant? Its a bit girly, but its not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Copper colour with a red tinge. Quite fresh, intense cassis aroma. Not too artificial. Falls away on the palate. The fruit is less apparent and there’s not much else coming through to replace it. Some acidic notes but its all a bit soft. Still better than I anticipated.
