Cask conditioned @ The Plough, Byfleet. Dry malts. Some leafy hop. Quite drinkable but not especially flavoursome.

jmgreenuk (4988) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2013
Cask at the Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is weak citrus fruit leading to a medium bitter flavour with a zesty red berry fruit palate and some liqourice and a little hop spice. A bitter though? Itís surely a pale ale.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Tasted this in the Three Judges, Glasgow in September 2003. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Light citrus aroma of lemon drops and elderflower short in intensity. Fizzy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a weak citrus note of burnt oranges and cereal. Strong flavour of hop resins in the dry bitter aftertaste is classic Church End. Finish is bitter edged with hop resins still delivering dry floral notes. A good summer session bitter.
