chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
A notably hoppy bitter. Attractive deep bronze colour. Spicy, resinous hops in the aroma, almost reminds me of an APA. Flavour is fresh and citric with some malt. Finishes dry and crisp, but maybe falls away slightly. Still very appealing. Cask (gravity dispense), Battersea Beer Festival, February 2005.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Cornish beer festival, The Star, Bath 19/7/08. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of red fruits and some citrus hops. Flavour had some sweetness to start, with fruity malts and a long, complex aftertaste of oranges, crystallised fruit and comforting bitterness. Very good.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2006
A Mes rate: Battersea Beer Fest 2006. Ususal hoppy, citric and floral notes as you would expect but I detected some clear sweetness in it which no one else seems to have noted. For me it was all about the finish with this one. A tiny hint of sugar and alcohol that left me really satisfied. Not an amazing beer but it just finished really well.
