yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
From cask at Bows Bar. Poursclear and golden orange with a small yet dense creamy white head. Aroma is mild hoppy fruity. Flavour starts sweet with a nice fruity hops note following. Shows a distinct bitterness into a dry finish. Light fruity hops note lasting along this giving the smooth impression of a fruity hoppy ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Ale. Gold. Slightly nondescript fruit aroma. Taste has an unattractive cardboard overtone. Slight bitterness. Having written that I found the cardboard gradually transformed itself into a rather nice fresh apple peel aroma, and my rating climbed accordingly.

Cask at GBBF08. Hazy copper colour. Small stable creamy white head. The flavour starts with a distinct bitterness, slightly rough, then turns a little creamy. Uncomplicated, but nice enough.
