Cask conditioned at the Baron of Beef, Cambridge. Was also available at the Cambridge Beer Festival. Deep golden colour, low head. Nice refreshing hoppiness throughout, citrussy elements in aroma and flavour. Decent.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Handpulled cask at the Speckled Hen, St. Albans. Gold with creamy white head. Nice fruity, citrussy flavour with a subble hoppy finish. One of GKs better offerings. Score 3.2. RE-RATE: I’ve just tried this beer again at JDW Stanmore. A fresh barrel tasted better with improved hop chacture and conditioning. Went down very well

Cask at the Harp. Clear, rich gold with a white foam head. Citrus, floral, light soap nose. Light sweet flavor, lots of citrus fruitiness, some dough and yeast. light to medium in body with average carbonation. Slight dry, toast and citrus finish. Good stuff.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2011
Cask @ Montagu Pyke, JDW. Pours a clear golden amber, with a small off white head. Dominated by mandarin, orange, peach, toffee, caramel, lemon and a slightly floral kick in the aroma. Quite nice.

Pint, from the cask. A: Bronze, copper, clear, small taned head, some retention. S: Floral, had to think of Saaz hops. T: Phenol, berries on the turn, finish slightly bitter and wheaty. Like some other Greene King beers it reminded me of a Belgian Pale Ale. M: Smooth, light body. O: Lots of depth for a bitter, very decent.

Bottled. Shovels of hops here; liquid lemon, dark amber body, began by thinking it was a little too hopped and tart but it settled to a surprisingly good crunchy beer. Keeps on tingling. More like alkie lemonade but I ain’t complaining.
