AshtonMcCobb (3936) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2014
On cask at the Bow Bar. Appearance - amber with a nice head. Nose - earthy and lots of apple. Dry but not so much biscuit aa preferred. Taste - apples and dry malt notes. Palate - light to medium bodied, with a dry texture and a long dry finish. A bit unbalanced. Overall - solid but not worth a revisit.

jjsint (1398) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Cask @ Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Clear copper with a tiny white head. Scent of fresh grass, bitter lemon, spruce and witch hazel. Fruity bittersweet initial taste gives way to a long super-bitter finish. Bitterness still with me long after the pint is gone. Thus has bags if character for 4%, and while the ’enough IBUs to kill a horse’ style of brewing is not my cup of tea, there is no denying that this is an incredible product.
