Cask: Regular.
A beautifully balanced beer, fruity by nature, with a well-rounded body and the suggestive echo of Crystal Malt.

Hippoman (530) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Cask at the Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.09/pint. Pours a deep, reddish amber with a thin, off-white head. The nose has touches of cereal grain and grass to it as well as doughy, bready malts. The taste is heavily sweet with malt-driven earthy, bready flavours overpowering the palate. Not one I enjoyed very much.

The_Osprey (4893) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Cask at Victoria ’spoons. Clear orange, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is very light, some bready notes. Body is medium, smooth, watery low condition. Taste is bready, watery, touch of spice and resin. A touch insipid, and perhaps not at its best.

Brandman (2540) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2015
No verbal comments. Just some numbers due to social interaction and heavy drinking.

Don2711 (309) - - JUL 24, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2015 Tarty aroma. Fruity flavour. Pale appearance. Sharp on palate and stronger than you think. All in all a good un.

Tastes of deep honey flavours. slightly darker with a reddish tinge. Hoppy and smooth with a bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at the William Stead. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - apples and dry biscuit. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - solid bitter.

Quite hoppy bitter with a dry finish. Some tartness. The cask version is nice and fresh tasting. Overall, a good solid beer though just slightly too tart to be perfect.

Nice fruity ale. Looks the part with a nice white head. Just fruits, fruits, fruits. Lovely carbonation as well.
