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.

Cask, Northcote. Orange golden colour. Hoppy sweet citrus nose then a bit chemical iodine scent. Full complex flavour of earthiness then caramel orange then dry bitterness. Interesting drop not for long sessions.

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.

On cask at OId No.7 Bar, Barnsley. Pours golden with a stiff white head. Aroma was hoppy but as intense as I was expecting. Nice but not as good as I thought it would be. £2.80 on cask and £4.50 on keg

Cask. Haze gold with thick creamy head. Loads of sweet hoppiness on the nose: sweet pineapple and some lemon fizz. Even tastier in the mouth: lots of tropical flavour of pineapple, grapefruit, sweet sugars. Like a can of lilt.

Cask; gold, clear, thin white head; exotic fruit and hops ahoy!; pink grapefruit, lychee, satsuma; quite sweet with a moderately bitter finish; good hop forward ale; reminded me of a less aggressive Summer Lightning.
