Cask@Kitty. Golden. Really nice floral, fruity, hoppyness, with a bit of greenish leaves. Body is pale malty, smooth but adequately bittered. Biscuits, pines, a touch of toasted caramel. Really nice, best real in a while (for 3.50e/pint at least) .

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craft Beer Co Islington. Pours amber with a small, dense white head. nose shows the bitterness about to come. Some bright tropical fruits work in its favour. Taste is heavy tropical fruits, slightly sweet with some lengthy, favouring bitterness. Works very well together and balances nicely considering its bitterness. Great stuff

cask @ Black Door
Aroma is sweetish with berries, citrus, hops and toffee. Also some peaches and hay. Flavour is hoppy with fruits, hay, peaches, nettles and hints of apricot. Some off-flavours start to occur after some sips. Quite rich for a real ale. The hop profile is a bit unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 keg, Knott Bar, Manchester. Pours a hazy orange. Predominantly pineapple & sherbert flavours giving a bittersweet taste, leafy/earthy finish, with yeasty flavours creeping in. Intriguing and unusual. Rerated on cask in the Kings Head, Carlisle. Lovely tropical fruit aroma, very faint sherry background. A bit of booze lurking in there with a hint of blackcurrant and caramel. Very good.
