Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes, in ’Spoons Real Ale Festival. Gold with a large white head. He had to coax this one out; the very dregs of the cask, and not surprisingly a bit warm. He was reluctant to serve it to me. ’Please,’ I begged. ’I’m a ticker.’ Probably some floral hop in the aroma, but the large head didn’t help. Taste is oily grapefruit. A sharp bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Cask.
Amber colour, little head. Grapefruit/lemon citrus hops. Taste to match - crisp, very hoppy and refreshing. Very nice, but a bit of a one-trick pony.

(Cask at Market Porter, Borough, London, 31 July) Colour is pale amber with frothy head. Nose is fruity with grapefruit, lemon and a distinct citrussy hop aroma. Taste is fruity with grapefruit and lemon, seriously hoppy with a slightly soapy character. Long, hoppy finish. Rather single-tracked and not really complex, but a hop heads delight. Excellent!

Pint pulled at The George in London Bridge, a golden amber with a thick and creamy medium-sized head. Aroma is a strong bouquet of citrus hops. The front of the mouth is hit with a very nice taste of fruits, but there is maybe too much bitterness from the hops.
