500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Amber body, a bit cloudy through the sediment, white frothy head. Nose was a light citrus, barley sugar, sweet. Taste was nice and refreshing to start with, but as it progressed it got a bit boring. Not too bad.

Cask@the avion, aldridge. Golden amber with small bubbly head. Aroma of dusty hops. Taste is bread, oranges and some faint hop resin. Ok beer.

berkshirejohn (6088) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Pale amber with a thin white head; muted grainy aroma; smooth in the mouth with some orangey fruit; and a dry biscuity finish with some light spices. Little sign of any hops though - I don’t see how they’ve got the nerve to call this an IPA.

Really strange muddled aroma: dust, apple, iron. Strange. The beer itself is a thrown together mess too. Gets a little better over time but I would not have this again.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Eastgate Northampton 01/08/13. An orange cokloured beer which poured failry headless. Fruity citrus notes. A decent body. Some marmalade elements. A touch of honeyed sweetness but it’s nice enough.

dynamiteninja (1827) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Cask at the Ralph (JDW), RIchmond. Hazy gold body. Medium white head. Wheat, hops, orange. Light bitterness. Dry finish. Thought this was a wheat beer.

SilkTork (5569) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Rochester JDW. A soft and pleasant beer. Sweet, thin malt - rather like a cheap strong lager, but thinner. Biscuit notes. Some smudgy hops - a little dirty, like damp straw, which gives the beer a little character and bite. OK.

imdownthepub (13418) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’12. Orange amber with slight head. Zesty, fruity, sharp bitterness, orange rind, pithy, pippy, plenty of character from the goldings, leafy and pleasantly dry. Very nice, went back for another.

ManVsBeer (8778) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
The ale has a deep bitterness with the slightest of a fruity kick in its aftertaste.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2012
Half pint, cask ale at Lass 0’ Gowrie. Tiny patches at the surface of a copper coloured body. Smell of resin-like hops. The taste profile is a mixed bag of resin, apricot and mid-sweet malts finishing off with a bitter support. Oily palate. Well balanced and well bodied. Good (Manchester, 07.07.2012).
