imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Eight Bells, Alton, Hampshire. Orange gold with white head. Quite still and soft in character but with a juicy, malty fullness, there is an orange citrus to it. Quite bitter in the close, very pleasant.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Cask at the White Horse, 28th August 2008. Clear amber with a good white head, lively body and a subtle hop aroma. Great taste and palate - a perfect session bitter. The second Bowman beer I’ve had (the other being Quiver at GBBF) and they’ve both wowed me!

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2008
Cask, gravity at the Hampshire Bowman, Dundridge, Hampshire 7th June 2008 Pours mid gold with the smallest of white heads, looks pretty good. Quite a zesty, refreshing beer with plenty going on for the strength. Nice soft citrussyness, bitterness nice, has quite a bit of life, taste is very nice, I like this and think it makes a damn good session beer.

SaintMatty (5191) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2010 Cask at The Guide Dog, Southampton- Pale gold in colour with a mild but pleasant hoppy aroma. A well balanced hoppy and malty taste make this a good session beer in my view.
