Enjoyable pint, fruity tatse with distinct orange, tends to becomes more bitter as it warms up.
Not bad but not amazing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 6th Feb 2008. Yellowy amber colour. Simple malt and hop aroma. Likewise basic flavour and a thin palate. Very much an everyday bitter - doesn’t do anything particularly wrong but is too bland to leave a lasting impression.

pale yellowy beer with tight white head that left a lot of lace. Nose was metallic with pleasing baked fruit. Mouthfeel belied its appearance and was quite substantial. Light fruity taste with a long hoppy finish. Nice.
