Cask – JDW Fest Spring 2012 - Pale Yellowy Gold in colour. Very Fruity; assertively bitter lemon citrus. Very Hoppy, grassy hops. Malty; toasty malts, caramel; hint of malted wheat. Big flavour for low ABV. Very bitter (sharp) and very dry throughout. Thirst quenching. Decent.

JDW Paramount, Manchester 25 Jan 13. Blek gyldenbrun. OK luftig skum med litt lacing. Litt uklar. Ferskenaroma. Smaken er grapefrukt. Blir etterhvert tørr. Veldig tørr avslutning. Bra øl!

AshtonMcCobb (2131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2014
On tap at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - Nose - floral but you have to search. Taste - mostly hop resin but with a creamy bitter lemon. Palate - light bodied with a tangy texture and unfortunately the finish is just too bitter to balance with this light body. Overall - some tasty features but not quite right.
