Bright clear gold beer, untidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with mild fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, mildly sweet, trace of cream. Hops start with a modestly bitter floralness. The mid brings mild pine, pith, citric fruits and a nice mild peach. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Mild bitter linger. Clean and pretty drinkable.

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2011
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Deep gold slight haze. No real head. Some hops on aroma fruit salad style. Better in mouth. A little syrupy but some decent pepper hop on finish. Quite tasty but funnily enough a little watery too. Some sherbert hop. Initialy I wasnt yhat keen but it did win me over

imdownthepub (11495) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2009
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Gold with slight head. Hmmmm, I wanted to like it lots, but it didn’t quite hit the right notes for me, it was particularly sweet and flabby, I like sharpness in an IPA. There is a sweet hop note and a fruity malt. Never mind.

FatPhil (10997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2013
Cask (Mill, Cambridge)
Peach aroma. Rich gold. Sweet, but quite bitter, and again peachy hops in the mouth. Nice carbonation for a real ale. You can tell that it’s a pretty serious beer, but not stupidly so. Good one.

Fin (8429) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2009
Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 08-05-09 Pours warm gold with a filmy white head. Plenty of ripe fruity flavours and its malty, but overall I agree with what Glen says this is let down by its sweetness, thick and rather cloying at times, its sticky but its still not so bad.
