Half pint pulled at the (JDW) Railway, a clear amber/gold with a foamy off-white head. A good flowery malt aroma with some stone fruit. Dry and grainy palate, malt dominating, with a bitter finish. Got smoother and brought out some fruit through the glass.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strange citrus and toasted malt aroma. Powerfull hops. A combination that is not to my personal liking. I much prefer their 80/ and Deucers. A queer combo of the two beers. Rubbish.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at the Star, Bath 11/5/07. Golden coloured with slight white head. The most prominent thing about XPA was the aroma, which was huge. This was buttery with a hint of caramel, and reminded me of some Franconian kellerbiers. The flavour was more subdued, with citrussy hops and a malty finish. Unusual and very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. I thought that this was a little over the top, flavourwise. There is a strong apricot and citric lemon flavour throughout, very hoppy with quite a thin base. There is a little bitterness later on with a crisp finish.
