Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Pours a deep ruby red with some beige bubbles on top. Aroma is zesty with bitter berry hops. Bready malt backbone in the flavour, with similar zesty hop character and light rye spice.

Bubeer (224) - - JAN 22, 2016
Slightly hazy mahogany. Large head, medium retention. Aroma intensity 3.5/5. Dark hoppy aroma, with notes of citrus, hay, banana and vanilla. Malt and apple comes out in the heavy bitter taste. Medium to full body, with interesting complexity

imdownthepub (12170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Cask conditioned at The University Club, Oxford. Red amber with white head. Fuller malty notes from the start, grainy notes, some cereal hints then a light caramelised character. Berry fruity notes then come through. Decent.

flying_pig (1304) - SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Pint on-tap at Derygate brewery, Glasgow (£4.50):
Good stuff again from Cromarty & much improved on their Happy Chappy that I had last from them. Hoppy (although the nose could have used more) with nice citrus & pine flavours balanced well against the caramel and biscuit malt sweetness that gave the beer a similar flavour to that of an American pale ale in places. Very nice stuff & one I’m likely to try again.

jeevan (215) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Pours a deep amber. Just off white head. Nice hop and caramel maltiness aroma. Rich malty hoppy balanced flavours + lovely super smooth mouth feel. Rye. Loved this beer on keg, about time I tried it on cask. Certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Aroma: light grain, intense floral hops, some grass. Appearance: slightly hazy, dark brown, spare, frothy, off-white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: turns very bitter, very grassy finish. Overall: OK Amber Ale. Pint at GBBF 2015, Kensington Olympia.

Garrold (3364) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Cask. Sheffield Tap. Clear bronze. Dense, thick, creamy, off white head. Lovely, resinous, fruity, spicy hop to this. Get the spicy rye. Taste is gently sweet, turning light bitter. Touch of pepper spice dryness. Body feels a little thin after all of that. Finishes short bitter. Light dry close.
