Cask on 25th September 2009. Brown/amber with smoth thin white head, holding up well under brisk consumption. A pleasant malt backdrop paved the way for a sharp, hoppy burst that is perfectly balanced by the malt. The hop was grassy, not citric, and cheesy notes were detected. A long, ticklingly hoppy finish on a textured mouthfeel. A very pleasant surprise and one of the best beers I had drunk in the fortnight ending 25th Sept 2009.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Off white dense head. Sweetness, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour is sweet, flowery and herbal and has disthinct notes of pine and caramel. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry. Ends on a nice balanced bitterness.

imdownthepub (10171) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2009
Bottled, 500ml, from Waitrose, Bath. Red amber with big white head. Full bodied malts initially give a good roasty flavour on the palate, this develops into nuttiness, roasted peanut perhaps, then there is a penetrating sweetish hop note, grassy and full. There is a lovely balance to this beer, very good indeed.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Zesty, orange hops. Nicely dry but not overly so. Very drinkable with a great puffy texture.

Dark amber colour didn’t have a head and was cloudy in appearance. It had a perfume aroma and had some carbonation. It was thick and had a hoppy taste.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2007
Amber with a large white head. Curious and interesting aroma: strong, gassy, earthy hops. The taste is rather subdued in comparison with malt and a little citrus. Hoppy finish.
