Beese (1667) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a clear amber, with a dense white head and good lacing. Aroma of raisins, sweet fruits and hay. Straw and grassy hops in the flavour, with some melon fruity sweetness. Finish was quite sweet; lots of caramel and mango.

Cask at GBBF, 2014. Gold pour with a white head. Stewed veg aroma, not much nose at all. Flavour is a little better- sweet fruit action. Not one to knock your socks off.

Pours a cloudy orange with a smallish head. Orange aroma. The taste is a bit muddled. I like in some aspects, but overall this is not for me.

wheresyourball (510) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tried this along with the IPA and Summer Ale. This was probably the best of the three. Pours dark orange, with a hoppy nose. Flavor is hops and malt, with some floral notes. Dry finish. Ok.
