imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’11. Gold with white head. Really quite a thinnish beer for the ABV, light malts, a little green perhaps. The hops are quite bittering, with an acidic feel, but again quite light.

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2011
Cask (Cask&Kitchen, London)
5 Dull sweet malts.
3 Paleish orange, tiny head.
5+ Some fruity retronasals. Either "bit of dill" or "but dull", my writing was sloppy at the time.
3+ Soft palate. Short finish.
10 This left me so uninspired, I’m sure something must have gone wrong. It was about the level of a decent lager, well short of what an ale should be like.
