The Cribber, Spoons. Cask. Light haze on this deep gold beer. Tidy white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Modest carbonation. Light malt, fairly neutral. Lovely mandarin fruit hops balanced by marmalade and peel bitterness. Finishes light. Great flavour just lacked a little condition, but by no means bad.

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. A thinnish, malty, light beer with quite a doughy note. There is a late leafy note but otherwise fairly average. Not really part of the Autumn Festival but sold as such.

At the Last Plant. New creamy head and smooth ale, subtle grapefruit and slight lemon. Mild taste but bitterness is a little heavy. Nice

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Cask at Arthur Robertson, Perry Barr, Birmingham. Dark blonde, perhaps tawny. Like Gill’s new hair colour. Sticky body and taste also. Belgium notes are evident, yes. Has flavour. Insistent. A bit. Not sure. I think it’s OK. Wouldn’t race to sup it every day though.

Cask handpull at Samuel Peto Spoons Folkestone. Clear amber lasting thin white head. The hop is ok quite strong and a little acidic. Some caramel. Not great.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. First day of the ’Spoons Fest - so I went to my local hoping to sample 6 or more - but they don’t have a single festival beer on yet! Fortunately they had this though - I’ve seen it a couple of times before - but not had a chance to try it- when I was last at the Plough & Harrow in Hammersmith I was supposedly "the first one to late".

So, it’s a slightly hazy amber pour with a dense cream head; orangey aroma; and a fruity orangey taste with a dry grainy body; the finish is citrusy and pleasantly bitter. Overall it’s satisfying and very moreish. A nice beer.
