oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Cask (backlog). Golden colour, not that much head. Aroma is floral, fruity, some mild herbal and grassy notes along with mild toffee. Flavour is herbal, grassy, floral and mildly bready malts to it. Very basic, and not all too exciting.

airrick2003 (854) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Appearance: clear darker golden color, almost some amber hues, not much of a head Aroma: very creamy, butterscotch, maybe a hint of mint, smells very good Taste: sweet and bitter battle it out, bitter finish, butterscotch, very unique and interesting, Palate: very lively carbonation, bitter after taste, light mouthfeel, leaves mouth dry Overall: I really like a beer like this, it’s somehow sweet and bitter, light mouthfeel, seems complex, tried from draft ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
On cask at the Black Bull. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - delicate malt with oranges. Taste - more pronounced oranges against a sweet malt backdrop. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not exciting by modern standards but very balanced and drinkable.

b3shine (7965) - Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a very slightly hazy gold with white lacing. Smells of grain and hops with some mild bittersweetness. Tastes like it smells with what seems like a touch of ginger, which makes it pleasant on the palate. A interesting bitter.
