Cask@The Wenlock Arms. Quality ale. Floral hops, some tropical fruit in the aroma. The thing i like about this beer, is that its fruity and floral, yet it is quite dry, finishes salty dry and bitter, i could drink a lot of these. Wanted more after every sip.

This is more like it. Crisp, clean and fresh with a spicy and flowery (without being too perfumed) aroma. Grapefruit and citrus flavours and a hoppy finish. An inpressive beer from an impressive brewery. Cask, Battersea Beer Festival.

Nov, 2003 Cask fresh @ The Wenlock. I thought I’d rated this and didn’t pay it that close attention. It was a lovely drop: tasty fragrant grapefruit rush with a gentle sweetness. Probably the best beer of the night. [3.8]
May, 2012 Gravity cask at the English Festival, Riverside Park. Fresh, juicy and hoppy. A spanking good beer. [3.7]

Cask: Wenlock Arms, London. Poured yellow with a thin head. Had a citrusy aroma with hops. It has a hoppy flavor but I noticed a slight soapiness to it. Not bad.

GBBF 2003, tap: Very nice and deserving of that silver medal. Crisp fresh hop nose, pale gold color, very sticky and lacy head. Citrusy flavors from a good mix of sweet malt and a bitter tangy hopiness. Great balance, medium body. Excellent.
