[Cask at GBBF 2004] A dark yellow beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is very hoppy and sweet - and so is the flavor, leading to a dry finish. A nice beer.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Cask handpull at Society Rooms JDW Maidstone. Looks ok orangey gold colour and white fluffy head but then I got a smack of diacetyl on the nose and in the mouth. Left it being a buttery citric beer. From other people who have had this I believe that it is better than this normally

TBone (12477) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2006
Cask@Northern Bar, Edinburgh. Pale yellow, creamy off-white head. Sweetish and honeyish hoppy nose. Starts watery and a sweet fruity. Then very good grassy hoppy flavor, which even multiplies in the aftertaste.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2009
Cask @ Bow Bar, Edinburgh.
Pours clear golden with a slight greenish hue. Aroma has soft buttery notes, a touch of fresh elderflowers and sweet malts. Low carbonation, fine frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some apple, a tiny touch of butter, the elderflowers are there, but not overpowering. Soft peppery and spicy bitterness. Quite nice.
