UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Cask at The Bree Louise, London. Pours clear gold with a few bubbles for a head. Bready malt aroma with some ripe citrus hops. Medium sweet flavor with a nice fruit character. Some crunchy grains, also grapes, oranges and dull cherries. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Mild sweet finish, some fruit jam, toast. Very enjoyable stuff. (3.7)

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2011
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in August 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thick white head. Light aroma of meadowsweet and dusty hay. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a light digestive biscuit note with fruity citric flavours of gooseberry and kiwi. Dusty hop resins give an aromatic dry bitter aftertaste. Good malt and hop balance in the well rounded finish. A good session ale for hot summer days.

Fin (9582) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Cask, handpull at the Malt and Hops?, Edinburgh, with Craig, Jan, Charlotte & Loz, 29.10.10 Pours amber with a big white fluffy head. The aroma isn’t up too much. Taste is low-med bitterness, bit too much confectionary going on here for me, too sweet lacking bite and identity. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2
