Has a smooth, light fruit / hops entry and ends with a strong hops / bitter finish. I had this in a single bottle and as a session. It’s a zesty, crisp ale, but is not in my top 10 of British Ales. My first tasting of this was at the Keswick beer festival in 2004. It is better from the cask.

[Cask from The Three Judges] Amber with a small, creamy head. Fresh, hoppy aroma of peaches and citric hops. sweet malt upfront, more fruit leads to a dry finish.

leaparsons (7965) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2006
Cask, The Strands Hotel, Nether Wasdale. Hazy gold with a dense head. Aromas are caramel malts with fruity lemo notes. Flavours are mid malts with zesty lemon and spices. Nice and dry and the finish, fairly hoppy. Simple, yet addictive.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2006
Amber, almost no head. Citrus and hops and rust in the scent. In the mouth: hoppy and lemony. Slightly watery. Simple and average. Not very much to this one.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2006
(Cask at Lion Tavern, Liverpool, 25 July) Colour is amber with brown notes, white disappearing head. Nose is malty, nutty (almond) with some dark fruit. Same goes for the taste: malty, nutty, dark fruit, prunes and a balanced bitterness in the dry, dusty finish. Balance is the word. In perfect condition, as always at the Lion Tavern.

Gold body with a creamy ivory colored head. Nice malty sweet aroma, some light fruits. Awesome taste, skinned apples with a light hop bite. Nice smooth and cool ending. Great lacing.
