Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 14/04/12.
Copper to amber in appearance with a small white head.
Lots of hops on the nose allied to a little fruit and straw.
Hop forward taste, more floral than the nose, a little biscuity malt and fruit.
Medium bodied with a bitter-dry finish.

Cask conditioned at The Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London. Amber to copper with off white head. Sharp hoppy flavours, green leaf, slightly peppery but with a fruity, peachy overnote. Ends in a dry bitterness. Good beer.

Cask at the brewery. Pours a bright and clear dark chestnut colour with a small and short, soapy off-white head. Great nose, some apple acidity but mostly toffee and roasted malt with some tangy berry fruitiness going on. Roasted malts and juicy, fruity berry notes, some slight yeasty dryness, a good grassy hop sting and a milk chocolate, biscuit aftertaste. Soft and clean mouthfeel; so f’n drinkable, I really love this stuff.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2006 Cask (gravity dispense) at White Cliffs Beer Festival, February 2006. Bright, mid copper colour. The hops are the thing here. And very fine hops they are too. Tangy, spicy, grassy and earthy with some citric/grapefruit edges. And there’s enough underlying berry fruit and dry malt to provide balance and prevent it getting too one-dimensional. Very nicely put together. Unfortunately its only an occasional brew.

Cask @ 13th White Cliffs BF, Dover. 3 February, 2006
Extreamly hoppy for an English ale. Quite fruity as a fruitcake. Fruits and some flowers going everywhere in an unfocused caledioscope. Either you like it or not, I believe. I like.

Cask gravity at Dover Beer Festival 2006. Beer of the festival for me. Deep brown with lasting beige head. Lovely hop on this with good malt base. Hops are excellent and fresh
