Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thin head fades to nothing. Softest damp pine, light spice, sweet malt nose. Slightly sweet honeyed malt, bland malty body, pretty flat, soft musty bitter finish. Fine, very average.

Clear amber-coloured beer with a frothy head and aroma of caramel and floral hop. It’s lively on the tongue with a hit of spicy sweetness up front and the finish is bitter but a touch flat. Has a nice body to it though.

Rusty pour with a very thin head. Aroma: all very faint. Hops, lemon, malt, grass and a small musty smell. Taste: initially pretty good but it turns almost stale. You get the hops, citrus and malt but it turns a bit sour, particulary when it warms.

Bottle. Appearance: Dark orange. Little to no head. Aroma: Grassy, lemon, a little hoppy, quite grassy, caramel. Flavour: Caramel, spice, a little flat, some weird sweetness going on, sickly, grassy finish. I’m wondering was there something wrong with this bottle.

Half pint from cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2012. Clear dark copper colour, almost no head. ’Strange’ pine taste, with a hint of fruit. Dry and a little bitter. An alright drop, but seems previously to have been overrated. A bit watery.
