A beer with a flowerly, hoppy and fruity nose, although malt is never far away. Fruity hop is evident in the taste and there is a consistent bitterness.

Cask at the Wheatsheaf, Frimley Green. Pours a good clear dark brown colour with a good white head. Full and inviting aroma of floral hops, honey, citrus and grape-peels. Flavours starts soft and malty of toasted bread and grains with increasing notes of floral hops and orange-peels. Light to medium body with gentle, soft carbonation, with dry finish.

Cask handpump at The Eagle, Cambridge. Clear amber with an aerated head. Hoppy, citrus scent with some biscuit malts. Quite carbonated. Well balanced at first, then a dry, bitter end. Some sweet roast nuts in the mouth and a slightly cereal aftertaste but hops predominate. Quite nice.

kwik-lime (1157) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009
Weak but pleasant ale to quaff easily in a session without getting you the least bit excited. Mildly floral and citrusey, not much bitterness, feels like a summer beer yet strangely served in December.

Fin (7013) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Cask at the Red Lion, Northmoor, Oxon, leg three of the Thames Tipple Poured mid amber, some sweetness on the nose but little else. The taste was quite plain, reasonable bitterness underpinned with some sweet malts

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2007
Cask at the Wheelhouse, Nottingham. Amber with a thick white head. A little malt in the aroma and the taste. Some traces of bitterness. Nottingham people say it doesn’t taste the same as when it was brewed in the Kimberley Brewery with Trent water. This Greene King version is bland and boring.

Cask at The Bell, Nottingham: a rather ordinary bitter; taste dominated by the sweetness of the malt, lacking any real bitterness.
