A Mes rate. Cask at The Rake.
Clean gold with a thin off white head. Slight ethanol and generally American style hoppy aroma. Similar flavour with a hint of German malt. Nothing much ’Oktoberfest’ about it but it’s well balanced and very drinkable.

Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London on 7th October 2009. Amber with offwhite head. Rich and intense hop flavours, a little delicate spiciness and slight cheese notes (desired) with a rich, intense hoppy finish of long duration. Excellent pint, perfectly kept.

Cask-condtioned at the Market Porter, Southwark 06/10/09. Amber coloured with a slight white head. My notes on this are scanty, but the spicy hops were the main feature alongside some fruitiness. Finish was pleasantly dry. Ok.
