A Mes rate. Cask at the Evening Star.
Clean gold body, really good white head and in bloody great condition. Lovely hops and hints of ginger. Massively floral, plenty of tangerine. Nice bitterness in the finish, maybe some elderberry late on too. Perfect for a hot summers day, which is exactly what it was while I was drinking it. Right place, right time, yum.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 8th July 2008.
Dry ginger - not subtle! Possibly some chilli? Bitter grapefruit. Tasty but not easy drinking. Original rating 2.4.
9th July 2009
Light haze on this gold beer. Nice hoppy profile. Grassy grapefruit and apple-orange. Spicy dry finish with some ginger heat. Decent.

Gravity cask at the Duke Of Wellington (Balls Pond Road London N1) on 12th August 2009 during the pub’s first festival. Gold with small white head that soon disappears. Grapefruit notes throughout, from the initial aroma to the finish. Some background bitterness, and a mildly textured mouthfeel. The total flavour package resembled Crouch Vale Amarillo. Very pleasant beer.

Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Light blond color, hazy. It has a very nice hop aroma; grassy too. Mellow maltish flavor, with quite strong bitterness and some hop quality; unfortunately both the aroma and the flavor are spoiled by a ginger presence.

Cask handpull at Green Berry, Deal. Pale gold, thin white head. Initial hit is ginger and elderflower. I mean it is gingery. No doubt, bit too much on the spice. Also a bit soapy. OK. Some lemon
