UPDATED: DEC 14, 2015 Cask. Appearance is quite a dark amber, a small off-white head with tight bubbles. Aroma- smells freshly brewed- very malty, digestive biscuit, hops, mash tun. Taste- lemon, dry hops, dusty cupboard, watery mouthfeel. This used to taste different. In bottle- much crisper and hoppier, wheaty malty undertones. Better.

Bottle at home picked up from the brewpub in Canterbury. Big hiss when the bottle is opened. Clear golden / bright orange coloured pour with a big rocky white head. Very lively. Aroma is tea, herbal / hedgerow hop, light jammy fruit. Little onion on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of tangy grains, tanin, slight infection, tea bag, hawthorne, hedgerow hop. Palate is very thin, way over carbonated, gassy, Assertive rough grassy bitterness.

imdownthepub (12908) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Gold with white head. This proved to have quite a perfumed, fruity beer with a distinct peachy flavour, slightly flabby, hints of tartness. It’s ok.

Beer5000 (5812) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Cask @ The Foundry. Rather clear golden body with a small off-white head. Mild and nice fruity aroma with pale malt. Flavor is smooth pale ale, fruity hops and a good level of bitterness for a bitter. Medium body and a nice bitter aftertaste. Nice, uncomplicated session ale with fine balance and pleasant bitterness.

Dark golden. Medium sized white head. Plenty of lacing. Hoppy aroma with some malt. A slight acetone note. Smooth drinking cask ale. Bitter malty and quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
