A pale, golden quaffing ale with excellent flavours for its strength. Pleasingly hoppy throughout without being aggressive and also possessing of a fine aroma. The finish is dry with a small twist of sweetness at the end.

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.

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.

harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2007. Gold with lasting white head. Fragrant hop aroma. Litlle bit soft may, but sherberty hop is tasty. I liked it, very sessionalbe, I like the hop, some US hop maybe. Very drinkable and the barrel had just come on. Good to see Bowman coming out of the ashes of the Cheriton brewery which was always fantastic. The Quiver though is better.
