gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 On tap, Newcastle area. Enjoyable pint, fruity tatse with distinct orange, tends to becomes more bitter as it warms up. Not bad but not amazing.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
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.

ritchie666 (20) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2007
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.
